Lateef Adedimeji Bags Honorary PhD From International University

November 28, (THEWILL) – Renowned Nollywood actor, Lateef Adedimeji, has taken to social media to share the exhilarating news of being awarded an honorary Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD), from Estam University in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

In a heartfelt post on his Instagram page, the actor expressed his joy at receiving the PhD, emphasising that his primary focus has always been on finding happiness in his craft rather than chasing after fame.

Lateef Adedimeji, known for his stellar performances, has garnered widespread acclaim for his dedication to the art of acting.


Reflecting on the irony of the long nights spent honing his skills, mastering lines and perfecting expressions, Adedimeji expressed gratitude for the honor.

In his own words, “I was moved to tears as I got adorned in this beautiful robe. I have never been interested in fame, I just wanted to be happy with my craft and the lives that I inspire.

“Ladies and gentlemen, today, I have a new title, one I couldn’t have imagined would come without me facing invigilators and keeping late nights to study…

“The irony is really interesting. I burn midnight candles to master my lines and perfect my expressions, now I’m getting rewarded with what could have been if I did it for classroom reasons.

“I humbly reintroduce myself, I AM DR. ABDULLATEEF ADEDIMEJI ADETOLA, Doctor of Philosophy in Art and Culture from Estam University, Benin.”
