A Nigerian student has achieved the highest grades at a Japanese university for the past 50 years, while solving a mathematical equation which was unsolvable 30 years ago, in his first semester.

Ufot Ekong achieved a first in electrical engineering at Tokai University in Tokyo, scoring the best marks since 1965, CCTV Africa reported.

Ekong, from Lagos, also plays the saxophone, and runs a retail wears and accessories shop in Japan called Strictly African Japan.

The Nigerian speaks English, French, Japanese and Yoruba, his country's native language, and paid his way through university himself.

Propaganda?!?!?! Seriously? What in the world would make you assume that? What are they propagandizing? That a kid from Africa can be smart?

Are you really that racist....or is there some other reason you assume this is "propaganda"?

Uh... What?

I mean... This just is not a political story here. This is a human interest story, one of success in a world where failure is far more common.

Where is the propaganda in that?
