Popular Hollywood actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has bagged an Honorary Doctorate degree in London.

The Nigerian-born actor has been awarded the Honorary Doctor of Literature Honoris Causa of the University of London International Programmes, by HRH The Princess Royal, Chancellor of the University of London.

Adewale graduated with an LLB from the University of London International Programmes and an LLM from King’s College London, one of 18 Member Institutions of the University of London.

Adewale was brought up by white working class foster parents when, after a spell as students in London, his parents moved back to Nigeria.
