“They believe that I am a good fit and a role model to the Igbo youths in my community because of how I faced hardship while growing up and how I was able to persevere positively with hard work, God and determination.

“Everyone knows how particular I am about my culture, so it was only right to add a title to it in Lagos State by my community. I’ve learnt that all that glitters is not gold and that no one can be there for you and inspire you more than yourself.”

Whitemoney, who was overjoyed with the honor, revealed the news in an Instagram post on Monday.

Whitemoney’s Instagram post stated, “First of all, our people say when a child washes his hands well, he may sit with elders. Another title added: UGWU NDIGBO’ i.e ‘THE PRIDE OF IGBOS’.

“It was another humbling moment for me last Saturday as I was conferred as ‘UGWU NDIGBO’ by the Igbo speaking community, Lagos State.”
