Anthony Joshua Meets Queen Elizabeth At The Commonwealth Service


At the event, Anthony was to give a speech addressing the Royal Family and he did exceptionally well. He gave credits to Nigeria locally made food (egusi soup and pounded yam) and is proudly Nigerian and British.


He said: My name is Anthony OluwafemiOlaseni Joshua and, like many of you here, I’m a child of the Commonwealth.


I was born in Watford and my heritage is Nigerian. I come from the Yoruba people, who are the largest and some might say the loudest ethnic group in all of Africa. I’m proudly Nigerian and proudly British
I feel opportunity should be there for the taking along with hard work, dedication, and perseverance, regardless of one’s background. We need to strive harder collectively in order to create unity. It takes a village to raise a child. And in the same vein, it takes a whole community to act and stand together to tackle some of the challenges we are confronted with today.
