Peter Okoye the former member of P square has bagged an honorary doctorate degree from Escae-Benin University, Benin Republic.
The 39-year-old Nigerian singer-songwriter was awarded the doctorate degree for his contribution in music and dance in the entertainment industry.
Taking to social media, Peter expressed his gratitude.
“Dear Team P! It’s a great honor to be decorated by a distinguished educational institution, who have recognized my contribution to dance and music as well as my support for the youth in the entertainment industry. Thanks, you @escaeakpakpacampus @escaeunibenin for this honor.
“- Dr (Hon) Peter Obumneme Okoye Aka Dr Mr P,” he tweeted.
This comes barely a week after he went on record taking a swipe at his fierce critics who thought he would disappear and never amount to anything following his split from his twin brother, Paul and their group.
He wrote on Facebook;
“Team P! What were they thinking? That I wasn’t going to survive alone? They just can’t stand the fact that I am richer now and doing well for myself. Pained! And this post is for them and them alone! Just watch them referring this post to my family as usual! Odes! Watch them start preaching!” he wrote.
“Like I said! Haters pls comment and identify yourself on this post and my management will separate you out from my true fans. The Blocking also includes the people that liked and support the comment!” he said.
He urged those who do not like him to unfollow him.
“You must not like my doings! So, Feel free to unfollow and unlike this my page! Or better still identify yourself so we can Block you! Have a very good morning!
