When an individual is outstanding in their field, some top universities can decide to honour them even if they never had a formal education. For this reason, top authors and poets and artists have been honoured in such manner.
One of the prestigious universities in Nigeria, University of Lagos, recently published a list of people who were issued honorary degrees at the school.
The list was published on their Facebook page and Five Star Music boss, E-money’s name was missing from the list.

This clarification from the school came shortly after the business man revealed on social media that he was issued a honorary degree by the European American University at an event held at Unilag.
Many people took this to mean Unilag had issued the degree and it was trailed by several reactions.
A Twitter user, Mr Aye Dee, took to the site to mock E-money and others who believed Unilag honoured him. According to the internet user, E-money has no verifiable source of income.
He tweeted: "Somebody who calls himself ‘emoney’, a person with no verifiable source of income, this person claimed he got an honorary Doctorate degree from UNILAG of all places and some actually believed it? "
