Linda Ikeji, was conferred with an honorary doctorate degree from Trinity International University, Georgia, USA in 2018 for her media work in Africa, Kemi said.
The Journalist also note that many busy bodies messaged her then that it’s a FAKE degree. It’s actually NOT. Remember many Nigerians are SBNI Smart but not intelligent. Let me explain.
However, “A honorary degree, in Latin is a degree honoris causa (“for the sake of the honor”) is when a university had waived the usual requirements, such as matriculation, residency, dissertation, and passing of comprehensive exams.
“Some of you ask me why I “put Dr in front of my name and some fans call me Dr Kemi.”
I have an ACADEMIC doctorate in Pharmacy after a Bachelor’s with accelerated transition.
That all the white men (oyinbo) basically means I SAT IN A CLASSROOM! “Linda was honored with a Doctor of Humane Letters. Can she really be addressed as Dr Linda Ikeji? 95%, the answer is no, you should not call yourself “Dr.” if your doctorate degree is a honorary one.
But some universities might not mind so much if they do. “Linda’s degree of Doctor of Humane Letters(D.H.L.; or L.H.D.) is almost always conferred as an honorary degree, usually to those who have distinguished themselves in areas other than science, government, literature or religion, which are awarded degrees of Doctor of Science, Doctor of Laws, Doctor of Letters, or Doctor of Divinity, respectively.
“Doctor of Humane Letters degrees should not be confused with earned academic degrees awarded on the basis of research, such as Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Science or Doctor of Theology, nor earned professional doctorates such as Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Doctor of Pharmacy like mine.
“ANYWAY, many celebrities, government officials and ordinary great citizens like Linda Ikeji get those honorary degrees.
