Popular entertainment journalist analyst Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo has said Dr. Kwame Fordjour, the man behind Global Blueprint Excellence Awards should be awarded for his ability to scam prominent Ghanaian personalities.
The pundit, marveled at how Dr. Fordjour executed his intention to sway and award Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Professor Ebenezer Oduro; BET Award winner Sarkodie; 2nd Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin; among others under the guise of working with the United Nations and the prestigious legacy of Dr Kofi Annan remarked that the man who until he was exposed was regarded by the aforementioned, should be awarded for his outstanding gallantry.
“A lot of people have questioned his fashion sense. A lot of people have questioned his utterances as to whether he makes sense or not so they’re expecting people to actually figure it out whether he is genuine or not. If this person with question marks over his fashion sense, the way he talks has been able to scam high-profile personalities on all divides, then that person deserves an award,” he said on GhanaWeb TV’s entertainment review show Bloggers’ Forum.
“In other jurisdictions, he would have been used for something positive because of his mindset,” he added.
About Dr. UN
‘Dr.’ Kwame Owusu Fordjour, now known as ‘Dr. UN’ is now a star, garnering all the attention that is much needed by talented entertainers who have been floundering to attain a bit of the spotlight.
In his ascent to infamy, ‘Dr. UN’ ended up casting a big doubt on the credibility of awards in Ghana, so much so that, even a harmless mention of any awards now raises eyebrows.
Fordjour’s case study is not the first time an awards scheme has been detected as phony – and obviously would not be the last but the level of attention it garnered has indeed triggered a sense of caution for most people when it comes to awards or honours.
