An Academic Expert Throws More Light On Honorary Doctrates

Speaking to an academic expert, Yaw Dasebre explained the difference between an honorary doctorate and an academic PHD. Yaw said:

An honorary doctorate to begin with is not an academic qualification. It is an award that is given to people in recognition of their life achievements or contribution to society or an institution.So Mercy can be awarded an honorary doctorate in recognition of her contribution to the Ghanaian movie industry ( it doesn't equate to an academic degree in cinematography).

Clarifying the difference, he explained that Mercy and her husband's award is for their contribution to their community and is not the same as an academic PHD as some folks think.

Why It Is Important For Celebrities To Give Back To Their Community

Yaw Dasebre highlighted the need for popular people who make it in life to help their communities when they become successful:

It's a good thing for celebrities to help their communities. After all the community is what made them the celebs they are ( remember, there is no celebrity without a community of supporters of a fan base). So to me they helping out is a way of giving back to the society and saying "thank you for supporting me".
