Nigerians in diaspora are making us real proud! From scholars to musicians to athletes. This year we unveiled so many Nigerian students who came top of their class in their colleges abroad. New pop sensation Jidenna also surfaced, who took the entire pop culture by storm. Now joining this list is Nigerian born boxer Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua, who defeated former kick-boxer Dillian Whyte yesterday to take the British heavyweight title with a bruising seventh-round knockout; taking one step closer to a possible shot at the world boxing title.
The 26-year-old boxer’s latest win raises the prospect of a clash with WBO and WBA heavyweight champion Tyson Fury if the fellow British fighter beats in their world title rematch.
