Mr Macaroni believes it is a win for the content creation industry

In a chat with Legit.ng Mr Macaroni said his honorary degree was a recognition for the entire content creation industry.

He said:

"It is such a beautiful moment. It was a great feeling when we got letters from two universities. The letters were dated the same date so I had to be in Ibadan while some of my team went to Cotonou. It humbles me, that perhaps there is something we are doing right. Not necessarily because I am the best at what I do.  For me, it is more of recognition for the entire industry especially when it comes to content production, we should understand fully well that the industry is growing. People are working assiduously to make things better, to put this industry on the global map and stage. My teacher told me that drama should not only entertain but should be used as a tool to educate, inform, and rejuvenate society."

"The doctorate degrees made me feel like this is what I wanted to do with my content and it made me know that people see what I am doing. My teacher was very proud of me, he sent me a letter. He is the acting Vice Chancellor of Redeemer University, Professor  Ahmed Yerima. It was such a beautiful moment to remember him writing my letter of recommendation when I wanted to be the president of the student association in 2016. He was the head of the department then. Fast track to 2023, he is the acting Vice-Chancellor."

Not done, he added that it is not too late to go back to school irrespective of the person's age. He also stated that he would go back to learn very soon.

His words:

"I have hopes of going back to school. This was what I wanted to do before, to have my Masters and then my doctorate but then, to the glory of God, Mr. Macaroni became Mr. Macaroni. When Mr Macaroni became Mr Macaroni, I wasn't expecting it at that time. I always knew I would be successful, I just didn't know the time. So when Mr Macaroni happened, I was consumed with a lot of work. We are working every time but regardless, I would probably do my Master's online and proceed to my doctorate, I love to teach. I will take the right steps in the right direction.
