Similarly, back in 2022, Nigerian singer Portable bagged a chieftaincy title as he was crowned the Amuludun of Tigbo Awori Land, also in Ogun State. The Streets Hop singer recently marked the one year anniversary of the chieftaincy in grand style.
Way back in 2018, Big Brother Naija star Temitope Adenibuyan, known as Teddy A, also bagged a chieftaincy title. He was conferred the title of Asojuomo of Iyere Owo in Iyere town, Owo, Ondo State.
