Dancehall superstar, Shatta Wale, has waded into the fake UN Kofi Annan awards saga involving some celebrities and other prominent Ghanaians.
In his latest video on social media, Shatta Wale has laughed at D-Black, Sarkodie and other stars who were 'fooled' by the awards.
Kwame Fordjour, who holds himself as a Ph.D. holder (doctor), held what he called the 7th Global Leadership Service to Humanity Awards on Friday, August 28, 2020.
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.
But days later, it turned out that the organiser of the awards is a shady character who has no connections with the United Nations or Kofi Annan.
In a statement to the press, the United Nations office in Ghana issued a disclaimer and distanced itself from the awards and its convener.
Sharing his thought on the whole saga, Shatta Wale wondered why the entertainers were bent on getting awards from the UN when they had not done anything to merit such.
In a very jovial tone, Shatta Wale put the whole blame on rapper D-Black revealing that it was his money that was used to organise the awards.
According to Shatta Wale, Dr. UN, as the organiser of the awards has come to be known, told recipients that he was shipping the awards from China and everybody was to pay GHC1,000.
While Sarkodie and the other winners paid the GHC1,000, D-Black decided to pay GHC5,000 and even helped Dr. UN to organise the awards in a bid to get more awards.
As to why Dr. UN decided to add D-Black and Sarkodie to his list, Shatta Wale disclosed that it was payback for their refusal to feature on his track.
Meanwhile, Nana Ama McBrown has revealed how Kwame Fordjour had wanted to give her one of the fake awards he shared.
According to the actress, Fordjour, popularly known as Dr. UN, sent her an e-mail concerning the awards.
McBrown also disclosed that Fordjour had wanted to also make an appearance on McBrown's Kitchen.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that a video of how Sarkodie received his ‘fake’ UN Award had surfaced online.
He was in the company of his bodyguard, Black Nana, who held the award for him after he received it
