Oyelowo was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2016 New Year Honours for services to drama.

On the Red carpet, David is always elegant and he is definitely not a big fan of the Black tie dress code. The actor usually wears monochromatic attire, often - a well-fitting three-piece suit, combined with a matching tie or bow-tie.
