Dr. Kwame Fordjour, the man behind the infamous fake UN Awards scandal that rocked some celebrities in Ghana including Sarkodie and D-Black, has spoken.
According to him, he does not need the consent of the UN to organise and give awards to anyone in Ghana.
Popularly known as Dr. UN, Fordjour said he has a team that is very competent enough to organise an award without the go-ahead from the United Nations.
He was speaking in a telephone interview with Nana Ama McBrown on her United Showbiz in a video sighted by YEN.com.gh.
Asked if he knew that using the UN’s logo in his award was a crime, Dr. UN said it is not so, stressing that he has even been invited to speak at a UN programme coming off in November.
One of the musicians who got the fake award, D-Black, was in the studio during the discussion and was listening. With a faint voice, he spoke back at Dr. UN, asking him to WhatsApp him again so he could have his number.
Dr. UN agreed, assuring D-Black that the award was not fake. He stressed that even before he was called on to take the award, D-Black himself knew that he was doing well in his field as a musician.
Some fans are not pleased with Dr. UN’s words and have criticised him.
Larry, for instance, wrote in the Akan language that Dr. UN could not even speak good English:
rahina.larry: “Me n my team. Ni br)fu tantan bi.”
Deeva described him as a man who got nerves”
omosexy_deeva: “This man gat nervesd.”
Others who got that fake awards are Berla Mundi, Graphic News Editor, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Johnny Hughes of TV3, who makes a tall list published earlier by YEN.com.gh.
We also published the video of Sarkodie taking the fake awards at the ceremony with pride. He was in the company of another friend. Sarkodie’s demeanour as he came to sit at his table proved how much he felt about being recognised by Dr. UN and his team.
