Rapper Sarkodie has deleted his IG post that saw him celebrating a supposed UN award
He had earlier made a post of himself holding a laurel and thanked the award scheme
It was later discovered that the award scheme convened by one Dr Fordjour, was fake
Multiple award-winning Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, famed as Sarkodie, has finally deleted his supposed UN award post from his social media pages.
The Oofeetsor rapper, after receiving an UN-themed award on Friday, August 28, 2020, took to his social media handle to celebrate the achievement.
He commemorated the memory of the late Ghanaian UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, and added that the legacy was still living on.
Sarkodie, like many other celebs, was at the Alisa Hotel in Accra to be awarded for their immense contribution to society.
The hard-hitting rapper was seen wearing a suit at the event and also posed with what looked like a golden jar which was his honorarium.
However, days after the prestigious event, it is reported that some two men dug to find the origin of the awards only to discover that it was fake.
After the discovery, social media in Ghana went into a frenzy as the notable names who were scammed by one Dr Fordjour, were being trolled.
Sarkodie, for some unknown reason, received majority of the trolls with fans and critics joining to tease the rapper.
Berla Mundi and D-Black who were also recipients of the same award, deleted their posts on social media when the pressure started building but Sarkodie left his post.
It was only until yesterday, September 4, 2020, that he decided to take down the posts.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that popular on-screen personality, Johnnie Hughes, who was a recipient of the Dr Fordjour UN Awards, has reacted to the aftermath of the saga.
In responding to the award and how he fell for it without knowing, Johnnie Hughes admitted that he could have done better before deciding to accept the award.
He added that the whole thing was so comical that it got him to laugh at himself so hard – something he had not done in a long while.
