Nigeria textile artist, painter and Philatrophist and the CEO of Nike Centre for Art and Culture Nike Davis- Okundaye is set to receive a honorary doctorate degree in Fine Arts from Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, in April.

She wrote on her Instagram page “I am so grateful and excited to announce that Rhodes University will be honouring me with a doctorate degree in Fine Arts.

“As many of you know, I was formally educated to primary level 6.

“However, through the amazing opportunities that I’ve been granted, hard work and continuous grafting, and the wonderful people that have come into my life, I have benefited from the highest levels of formal education.

She has been a major inspiration to so many girls.
