Ghanaian Politicians, Musicians & Journalists receive fake Kofi Annan UN Global Excellence Awards

Rapper Sarkodie & Sports Journalist Nathaniel Attoh with their fake awards

A major fake award scandal has set social media ablaze as very influential members of the Ghanaian entertainment, media and political space have been scammed and handed frivolous awards purported to have come from the United Nations (UN) and the late Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan foundation.

The so called Kofi Annan Global Excellence Awards organised by one Dr Owusu Fordjour who has a very questionable background which eluded almost all the award recipients held the award show at the Prestigeous Swiss Spirits Alisa Hotel in Accra on the same night as the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA 21) which saw many of the entertainers including Sarkodie and Dblack opting to attend the fraudulent award show instead of the VGMA.

“Dr” Owusu Fordjour is said to be a known fraudster

In an unfortunate or rather fortunate twist the UN and the Kofi Annan foundation have distanced themselves from the fake award scheme.
