Sharing the heartwarming video, the 42-year-old comic actor wrote,
“So last month I had the rare privilege of being invited to my alma-mater (Delta State University ) by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Andy Egwunyenga. A whole vice chancellor even supported kola for me 😂😂 (I faced disciplinary panel like 3 months after my final papers. So yeah I was almost expelled for alleged assault. So it was refreshing to be celebrated for once.) I also got to meet with some of my former lecturers like Mr. Martins, Mr. Green and Mr. Boniface. And then I met students of my department, theatre arts! These guys are stars in the making. I can see it. Their fire is evident; more than the fire I had.
Finally I went to girls hostel! Girls hostel wey dem no dey let us enter, I enter with my full chest 😀😀😀😀😀😀. But the beautiful thing was that a lady gave me her baby to pray for her! I simply prayed that her baby will be great and I dedicated the baby to God above! Yes I am Mufasa like that! 🦁! I sha entered girls hostel! Still can’t get over that fact. Long live Delta State University, ABRAKA!!!!!! #throwbackthursday.”
