He wrote: “I could not be happier to announce him as an Honorary Ambassador for the National Council for Arts and Culture @ncac_nigeria and celebrate him and his boundless energy and spirit.

“He is now the King of Steeze and brought global attention to Ojude Oba, the key traditional festival of Ijebu Ode celebrating the Awujale.

“For at least the last decade, he has been getting on his horse, dressed in magnificent asoke, and representing his family and culture.

“We discussed what made this year different and why the reaction was so strong. Was it the photographer, the festival, or just God’s time? I believe it was just meant to be.

“My brother is a fighter, diagnosed with terminal cancer. He has been fighting it for a decade and has never been anything but positive. He has been an inspiration to his friends, and now we are sharing him with the world. He represents all that is good about Nigeria. Please celebrate him, a true Nigerian original!

“I know he is braver than almost anyone I know, from the way he confronts his pain and has always represented Naija since I have known him. Congrats again and thanks for all you do.”
