Globacom-sponsored African Voices Changemakers, this week, profiles one of Nigeria’s foremost traditional rulers, the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse 3 who has been employing his royal stool to better a lot of his people.
The 30-minute magazine program equally features Sabrina Elba, a model, actor, and rights activist of Kenyan descent.
Ogiame Atuwatse III ascended the throne in August 2021. Born 2 April 1984 as Utieyinoritsetsola Emiko, also known as Tsola Emiko, he is the 21st Olu of Warri. A 2006 graduate of International Studies and Political Science from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, he also obtained a master of science degree in management from the same university’s Weatherhead School of Management in 2007.
He currently uses the platform of his traditional stool in the establishment of new projects and traditions, therefore, creating new employment opportunities and business ideas for his subjects who include an appreciable number of youths with talents in the creative arts and entertainment.
