Blessed Uzochikwa, the Nigerian pastor and husband to the singer Mercy Chinwo, has bagged an honorary doctorate degree.


The degree was awarded to him at the Myles Leadership University, India on May 13.

The university, with its main campus in Telangana India, awarded the IT expert an “honoris causa” in Technology, Leadership, and Innovation.

Receiving the honorary degree, Uzochikwa thanked the management of the university.


“I dedicate this award to my mum and everyone out there going through a dark moment,” he said.

Uzochikwa is a lead pastor at the Lagos-based Waterbrook Church.


He is a Microsoft-certified IT personality and a project manager.

Uzochikwa is acclaimed to have worked with several multinationals including Tetrapak, AstraZeneca, and Microware Solutions/IBM partners.

He obtained a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) in 2008.

He has since acquired various IT certifications from Stanford University, California, and other learning centres.


In 2016, Uzochikwa co-founded Four-X International (now Thrive Technologies), an information and communication technology company in Africa with local footprints in Nigeria.

“Uzochikwa is passionate about pushing the boundaries of technology to enable youth-driven digitisation and business transformation,” the pastor’s profile reads.

“He believes his imprints and influence will be home to over twenty million of the leading and finest next-generation trained and empowered entrepreneurs before December, 31st, 2050.”
