She shared nice photos that highlighted how the event panned out, including ones she received an award plaque from the institution.
Her post read in part:
''When I got a call from the acting Vice Chancellor that I had been nominated to speak at the 2021 matriculation ceremony, to say I was stunned would be an understatement.
"I would be the youngest ever matriculation speaker in the history of the University of Ibadan.
"I knew that this was a huge responsibility, first to ensure that I did justice to the speech, communicating navigation keys to more than four thousand freshmen, and next to ensure that my performance would pave the way for this new tradition of younger generation matriculation speakers."
Congratulatory messages flooded her comment section as Linkedln users hailed her for the feat.
