Popular dancer, Kafayat Shafau-Ameh aka Kaffy has bagged an honorary doctorate degree from Escae Benin University in the Republic of Benin.

Sharing on social media, Kaffy dedicated the award to the “dance industry.”

She said:

“I’m humbled to be decorated this afternoon by Escae Benin University with Honorary Doctorate in recognition as a ‘pioneer in the business of dance in Africa’.

“This award is not just for me but for an institution. That institution is the dance industry.

“I dedicate this award to every Dancer, Make-Up artiste, Barber, Cobler, Generator boy, painter, Tailor, plumber, graphics artiste, cameramen, journalist, and everyone that can dare to dream.”

In another post, she wrote:

“This moment right here brought tears to my eyes as I reflected and had my life do a major replay of all the struggles, pain and negative perceptions I have had to overcome to see this day.

“As a child, I looked through the Guinness book of world records and 18 years later I broke a Guinness world record

“As a teenager, I pictured my face on billboards and on tv and I saw it happen, I lived it.

“I watch Movies and motivational speeches done in the honorary gown of a doctorate honour and here I am honoured with the least likely career choice.

“I have heard so many doubts that through dance I can amount to nothing not to talk of being celebrated or honoured on this level In fact on many levels.

“I am here surrounded by Academics honouring me not for a certificate but for the application of every ounce of knowledge I have acquired in life both in school and on the street.”
