Dr Nneka Abulokwe was conferred with The Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for Services to Business by HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
She describes the event as “one of the proudest moments of my career”.
This investiture ceremony took place at Buckingham Palace and according to her, “My proud parents and siblings visited to share this moment with me. I feel truly blessed and grateful for this recognition of my contribution to business, and remain indebted to those who nominated me for this most prestigious award.”
We love how she celebrated Nigerian culture for the event.
She went with a gorgeous hat designed and made by the celebrity Milliner Eme Bassey Akenzua (@john3v3hats), and her outfit was from the Komole range by haute couture designer Deola Sagoe (@deolasagoeofficial).
