hip-hop mogul, Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, had a road in Illorin, Kwara state named after him when he visited the state.
The honours was done to him by the then Governor of Kwara State, now Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
During the trip to Illorin, Jay-Z was also turbaned by the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu Gambari. In other words, Jay-Z is a “titled Chief” in Nigeria.
Jay Z was on ground to do the commissioning of the “Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter Road”.
