Cursory: PhD requires a lot of dedication as it is an extremely rigorous process but it appears this hasn’t deterred some top players in the entertainment industry.
Legit.ng has compiled a list of these superstars who have climbed up the ladder and established themselves as respected authorities in their chosen fields of study.
1. Helen Paul:
A university degree wasn’t enough for the comedic actress because she doesn’t hide her passion for learning; therefore, it is not surprising. Helen Paul has a PhD in theatre arts, and a look at her social media accounts makes it clear that she is a true pro.
2. Joke Muyiwa
When veteran actress Joke Muyiwa unexpectedly announced her PhD on Instagram in December 2020, many people were caught off guard. Like her colleague Helen Paul, the well-known actor is a theatre arts PhD. Good job, mother!
3. Actor Eniola Olaniyan
The Nollywood actor is less visible on movie screens these days, and this is mostly because he is now placing more of an emphasis on academics. The PhD in Meteorology and Climate Science belongs to Olaniyan.
4. Doyin Hassan
The Nollywood star who once controlled the screen was a screen deity who appeared in a number of Christian films until he gradually faded from view. With a PhD in business administration and a position as a lecturer at Conestoga College in Ontario, Hassan, who is currently a resident of Canada, is qualified.
5. Olayiwola Razaq aka Ojopagogo
Nollywood actor Ojopagogo is primarily recognized for his parts in Yoruba films, but that does not mean the actor is not a genius in the field of academia.
He holds a PhD in Language and Communication Studies.
