Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Actress and TV show host, Nana Ama McBrown, has joined the UN awards trend by rejecting an award that was being handed to her on live TV in a comedy skit.
In the photo sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, Nana Ama McBrown was seen on the United Showbiz programme with segment host, Teacher Kwadwo.
The photo showed the comedian handing over what looked like a plaque to Nana Ama McBrown but she gestured that she did not want anything to do with it.
The popular actress, while keeping a straight face, leaned back and appeared to be pushing the award and its giver away to avoid any trouble.
What made the photo even more funny was the fact that popular comedian Teacher Kwadwo, was wearing a crumpled suit and was beaming with smiles as he presented the award.
Teacher Kwadwo also had on a red flying tie and appeared to be dressed the same way as Dr. Kwame Forjour, who has since gone viral on social media over his fake awards scheme.
Nana Ama McBrown, by her gesture alone, was somewhat of a subtle jab at her industry colleagues who fell for Dr. Fordjour's gimmicks.
The photo which was posted on the official handle of United Television was captioned:
"Hilarious Moment : Empress Rejects ‘UN Award’ from @teacher_kwadwo #unitedshowbiz"
Fans and followers took to the comment section to react to the photo and also share their two pence on Dr. Fordjour's awards.
Meanwhile, the Ghana chapter of the United Nations (UN) has issued an official press release and disclaimed any knowledge of Dr. Kwame Fordjour or his United Nations-themed awards.
In the disclaimer sighted by YEN.com.gh and fast going viral on social media, the reputable outfit indicated that its attention had been drawn to an award scheme purporting to be linked to the organisation and the Kofi Annan Foundation.
The disclaimer stated categorically that it did not have anything to do with Dr. Kwame Fordjour or his "Blueprint Global Challenge Awards".
