Chief Fiwagboola!!! Manchester United Defender, Chief Rio Ferdinand, Nigeria’s Traditional


Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, posted this throwback picture on his instagram page yesterday [Sept. 18] – he captioned it “Chief ferdinand!! #AfricanClothing”.

Obviously still savouring this moment even 5 years after…


This picture was taken in June 2008 when Rio visited Lagos, Nigeria to promote education through football.

Oba of Lagos, Akiolu decorated him with a chieftaincy title - Chief Fiwagboola.

Ferdinand relishing his new title then said:

I’m a little embarrassed to be named a Chief, I’m not sure I’m worthy. It’s something to tell the lads. I’m sure they’ll be very happy to call me Chief.

Wow!the attire suits him well.
