Anthony Joshua Met The Queen, And Told Her About Egusi Soup
No matter where you go, remember the roads that would lead your home; tam tam, tam tam, that would lead you home. Well that's the feeling our home boy Anthony Joshua gave us when he met The Queen.

The heavyweight champion and Nigerian-British boxer, Anthony Joshua, had a privilege of meeting with The Queen while attending the Commonwealth Day service in Westminster Abbey.

Joshua our omo Yoruba, delivered a rather emotional speech while addressing The Royal Family at the Commonwealth service.

In his speech to the Royal Family, Anthony Joshua proudly saluted and acknowledged his Nigerian origin and of course his favourite cuisine, egusi soup and pounded yam. 

Check out his speech below;
My name is Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni 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.
So here’s to fish and chips, Egusi soup and pounded yam. To the UK and Nigeria, and the children of the Commonwealth.
