Beautiful Nubia: Singer Set To Try Hands On Politics, Bags PhD Award


Popular contemporary folk and roots music singer, Segun Akinlolu popularly known as Beautiful Nubia, has received an honorary PhD in Arts from the ESEP Le Berger university in Benin Republic.

Showing appreciation for the honour on social media, the dreadlocked singer said, “Thanks to the ESEP Le Berger University, Benin Republic for the honorary PhD in Arts award received on Saturday.Thanks also to the management of FCE Osiele for the very warm reception we received while at the school on Thursday.
The Ibadan, Oyo state born singer and lead for the Roots Renaissance Band has also dropped a hint that he was considering contesting a political office in the next general elections which comes up in 2019.
He told The Nation “I don’t even like the idea of politics. I like the idea of nation building because politics has this negative connotation now, but politics is not supposed to be a negative word and that’s not my thing.
“I like to think of myself that if I become a politician I will be a politician that will be seen as a statesman, as a nation builder. You will probably see me there in the next elections trying to do something, to be governor of some state or something. I am working on it because I don’t believe in just talking for the sake of talking.”
