British-Nigerian artist Skepta has been made a chief in his parentsâ€™ home state of Ogun State in Nigeria.
The MC has been in Nigeria for a â€œHomecomingâ€ concert, which he invited the likes of J Hus, Not3s, Wizkid and Davido to perform at.
His chieftaincy title is â€œAmuludun of Odo Ajeâ€, which literally means the â€œChief Entertainer of Odo Ajeâ€.
â€œI am honoured and will continue to put time and love into Nigeria, especially the community of Odo Aje,â€ Skepta, who was born in north London, said.
The grime artist has spent a lot of time in Nigeria over the past few years, performing at festivals and putting on his own shows.
The title heâ€™s been given is for â€œentertainers in all formsâ€, according to BBC Lagos reporter Busayo Akogun.
Chieftain titles are given in recognition of a positive contribution to community wellbeing â€“ which Skepta has done through entertainment.
â€œAlso such people are known to be at the forefront of transmitting culture and tradition of the land from one generation to another using their trades,â€ Busayo said.
Skepta, whose real name is Joseph Olaitan Adenuga, has been welcomed warmly in Nigeria, where his parents emigrated from.
Nigerian culture website Native Mag described his relationship with the country as â€œwholly organicâ€.
British supermodel Naomi Campbell, whoâ€™s rumoured to be dating Skepta, congratulated the new chief on social media.
The supermodel has been in Nigeria with the MC, where she walked in ARISE Fashion Week and joined Skepta at his Homecoming pop-up shop.
The MC has previously been praised for his community work in Tottenham, when he partnered with Levis to create a music space for local kids in the community centre.
