A video of the trending fake Kofi Annan-UN Award ceremony that many top Ghanaian celebrities and icons fell prey to, has surfaced.
The footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook page of OMGVoice was an advertisement by the young man who paraded himself as a representative of the United Nations (UN).
As it turned out, checks made by some internet users have indicated that the award scheme is not credible and that the Ghanaian claiming to be coming from the UN and representing the international body was actually a fraud.
Watch the advertisement below:
The footage was a poorly-edited video that boasted that it was a relevant, unprecedented gathering that would see the most esteemed icons in Ghana present at the Alisa Hostel at 5 pm on August 28, 2020.
According to the organizer, the event dubbed Kofi Annan-UN Awards was to celebrate Kofi Annan as a global royal of all time.
It also listed Asanko Gold and Goldline Mining Ghana Limited as the main sponsors.
Meanwhile, rapper and entrepreneur, Desmond Kwesi Blackmore, known in entertainment circles as D-Black has lashed out at critics of the award and citation he received last week.
Reports have it that some top celebs in the country were handed awards believed to be linked to the United Nations (UN) at a well-attended event at Alisa Hotel.
Among the many honorees and awardees was D-Black who was seen in a video receiving the citation and laurel for his massive contribution to society.
