Gospel singer Esther Wahome is now a doctor after the Breakthrough International Bible University conferred her with an honorary doctorate for her commitment and continued contribution to the society.
According to the university, the gospel star was awarded after “having satisfactorily completed the requirement of the approved program; the awarding of this honorary doctorate was authorized by The International University Advisory Board; with all the rights, honour and privileges, as well as the obligations and responsibilities thereunto appertaining. In testimony thereof, we have hereunto subscribed our names and fixed the seal of Breakthrough International Bible.”
Esther was elated at bagging the doctorate but she would have loved her late dad to have seen her receive it.
“Very grateful to God for the far he has brought me. I wish my dad was here to witness this, he was really looking forward to this day, but I know he is smiling in heaven very proud of me like he always was,” she wrote on Instagram.
In another interview with K24, Esther said, “I feel good about this milestone. The university had been following my active participation in bettering society through worship since I was a teenager, and they found it appropriate to confer me with the degree.”
“A professor from the university approached me recently and said they were impressed by my contribution to society, and that this year, I would be a recipient of an honorary doctorate from the institution.”
Esther who is famed for numerous hits among them Kuna Dawa continued,
“I am pleased that my work has been noticed and appreciated. In life, upward advancement, be it in education, career, name it, is necessary; that is something I have come to learn and appreciate,” she added.
