Nigerian singer and songwriter Peter Okoye has bagged an honorary doctorate degree from Escae-Benin University, Benin Republic. The musician was awarded the doctorate degree for his contribution in music and dance in the entertainment industry.

Taking to social media, the musician and  father of two expressed his gratitude writing,

“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,” he tweeted.

“- Dr (Hon) Peter Obumneme Okoye Aka Dr Mr P,” he added

The honorary doctorate degree comes barely a week after he went on record taking a swipe at his fierce critics who thought he would disappear following his split from his twin brother, Paul.

Taking to Facebook,he wrote, 

"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.
