Watch: I’m holding on to Dr UN award because it’s still worth it- Sarkodie

Published

on

Celebrated Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has broken his silence on the “fake” United Nations Awards that were handed to him and other personalities in Ghana back in August, 2020.

Sarkodie was part of a group of notable people in Ghana, including politicians, media personalities, academics, celebrities and others who fell for the fake UN award scam organised by one Dr. Kwame Owusu Fordjour, popularly known as Dr. UN, at Alisa Hotel in Accra on Friday, August 28, 2021.

In a recent interview on Pure FM during his Kumasi invasion, Sarkodie explained that when he got to the venue, things were a little off.

“Angelo (Sarkodie’s manager) told me we had to be somewhere and when he asks me to move, I move. When we got to the venue, things were off a little, but I saw people there so I stayed. When I saw Dr UN at the back in his suit, I didn’t think he was the one organizing the award. But then later I heard him speaking on stage and I was like oh he’s the one in charge,” he told the interviewer.

Sarkodie added that he feels anyone could have fallen victim;

“I think it can happen to anyone. The way it was presented, you can take it for what it is.”

Although the award scheme turned out to be fake, the “Coachella” hitmaker stated that he still holds the award in high regard because he doesn’t think Dr UN was wrong in deciding to honour people on his own.

“But later on I was thinking if it was directly from the UN and the UN wants to honor you, but if it’s his own award I don’t think it’s still wrong. I think I still have to hold on to this award. It’s still worth it. He felt he should award people. But he used the name (UN) to lie to us,” he added.

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.
