A Nigerian lady, Tracy Chapele-Ugo, has gone viral on social media after she broke a 100-year tradition in Urhoboland after bagging the chieftaincy title previously conferred on her father.
Tracy, a sports presenter, said Kings in Urhoboland never give the chieftaincy title of a deceased chief to any of his daughters, particularly if he had a son but she was conferred with the title bestowed previously on her father by her king in Udu kingdom in Delta state.
”In almost a 100 years #Urhobo Kings don’t give a Father’s Chieftaincy title to his daughter esp when there are sons.
Today my family/People/Elders/Ovie found me worthy.
Daddy’s Chieftaincy title has been transferred to me.
