He said: “Promoting one’s culture is service that would not go unrewarded. One of the features that earned me the Aare Ona Kakanfo gown, according to the appointing palace, was my enthusiasm and commitment to the promotion of the Yoruba culture. What that implies is that, whatever we do for the sake of our culture is noticed one way or the other and the reward is bound to come, physically or spiritually.”

He also announced six Nollywood artistes to become of the Olokun Ambassadors.
