One Dr. Kwame Owusu Fodjour who was reportedly arrested in 2010 for attempting to swindle rural and community banks under the disguise of awarding them “Millennium Achievers’ Gold Award” has presented fake awards to some Ghanaian celebrities.
The fake awards: “UN Kofi Annan Global Excellence in Leadership Award” was held on the 28th of August 2020, at Alisa Hotel in Accra in recognition of the contributions of celebrated Ghanaians to the nations development. Some recipients include Berla Mundi of TV3, Nathaniel Attoh, D-Black and DJ Black.
The question is, how can this happen? Where are our journalists? Or is it just the craze for awards that has brought about even fake awards been awarded to influential people in this country? How can we loose authencity and credibility over fame and recognition? Well, better luck to future award winners. May they escape such a mishap.
