It was an incredibly special day. Thank you to Alma mater @wlvuni for this huge honour and to my wonderful family and friends. My son was also there and it meant the world to me. Giving a shoutout to the love of my life, who is always cheering me on @bankywellington
She said, “My experience at Wolverhampton was literally life-changing. it is the foundation upon which my career has been built.
“When I enrolled on my course in 2006 I was not confident at all. There is silent confidence that comes as a result of being informed and knowledgeable. I was taught to believe in my natural abilities but also put those abilities to good use. I was taught that talent is great but you need to be hard working to achieve it.
“This award is very humbling for me and I hope that it inspires prospective and current students to pursue careers in the creative industries.”
Etomi graduated from the institution in 2009 from Drama and Performance.
The creative industry in Nigeria has continued to gain more recognition from foreign institutions.
