Tobi Bakre has been honoured by the people of his hometown, Ago Iwoye as they gave the reality tv star a homecoming reception.
The former reality tv star revealed this via his Instagram page on Saturday, July 21, 2018. According to him, he was excited to be honoured by his own people as he poured accolades on his hometown.
“Today, I am humbled to be celebrated at home. I am Nigerian first before I am of any region. However, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State is where my roots lay. My branches I hope will spread wide, and my leaves provide shade for many, but I must first assure my roots are strong and the soil in which it lays, ‘our wonderful state Ogun’, is well nurtured,” he wrote.
He went to share his desire to be able to impact on his community and how he looks forward to being part of that change we all seek.
“I will be spending more time understanding how I can contribute immense value using my media persona to gather my colleagues to invest their time and effort into building the human capital that is our youth. I look forward to being a part of the change that we want to see,” he concluded.
