Kwame Fordjour, who holds himself as PhD holder (doctor), held what he called the 7th Global Leadership Service to Humanity Awards on Friday, August 28, 2020.
The awardees were drawn from various spheres of life with entertainers, politicians, business people, among others on the list.
At the awards, 'Dr' Fordjour gave out plaques which had “UN Kofi Annan Excellence Awards” inscribed on them in a bid to draw a link between the scheme, the UN, and the late Kofi Annan.

Answering a question on the creditbitly of the award, Fordjour maintained that it was great and that he gave Sarkodie an award for 'senior people'.
From his jovial demeanour in the video, it looks as if Fordjour was not serious with his comments or was making fun of the rapper.
Earlier, Dr UN, as the man at the centre of the UN Kofi Annan awards saga is now known, had broken his silence on the matter.
