Because knowledge is light, that is why it is encouraging to see some of Nigeria’s popular celebrities, especially females, who some believe that their main job is in the kitchen, going a step further to acquire more knowledge to the point of having doctorate degrees in their various courses of studies. Today I have compiled a list of six top Nigerian female celebrities who have acquired their doctorate degrees.
