Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in

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.
