Sarkodie has finally found his shame cells and has deleted the embarrassing fake awards he received from Dr Fordjour from his social media timelines.
Sarkodie was one of many Ghanaian celebrities who fell prey to the fake award scheme organized by one Dr Kwame Fordjour, a certified scammer.
He claimed to be giving out UN-Kofi Annan humanitarian awards and numerous Ghanaian celebrities eager to have their tiny egos massaged lined up to receive this fake award without doing any research.
Sarkodie in particular put on his best ever suit to attend the ceremony and be honoured.
A few days later the truth about the event came out that the so-called Dr is not a doctor and he’s not affiliated with the UN or Kofi Annan in any way.
Filled with shame, many celebrities deleted their photos from the award night, except Sarkodie.
Sarkodie claims Shatta Wale called him to explain everything to him so he now knows the award is fake.
You just know Shatta Wale truly gave it to him in that phone call! He could not stand the heat!
Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., who was born 17 October 1985 and known professionally as Shatta Wale (formerly Bandana), is a Ghanaian singer, songwriter, actor and CEO of Shatta Movement Empire. He won Artiste of the Year at the 2015 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for his best known single “Dancehall King”, and has appeared in films such as Never Say Never, The trial of Shatta Wale, and Shattered Lives.
Having achieved street credibility in a fairly undeveloped Ghanaian dancehall genre at the time, he achieved popularity with his 2004 single, “Moko Hoo”, which features Tinny. Then known in the industry as Bandana, the song earned Him a Ghana Music Awards nomination. There afterward, Bandana went missing in the music industry for nearly a decade until rebranding himself in 2013. He began releasing music under a new name, Shatta Wale, under his record label (Shatta Movement Records).
In 2014, he peaked at number 38 on E.tv’s “Top 100 Most Influential Ghanaian” Awards chart. He has since appeared on the chart each year. He was ranked “Most Influential Musician” on social media in 2017. He won 8 awards at the 3Music Awards in 2019 and also the most awarded dancehall artist in Africa.
His musical career began during his high school days at the Winneba Secondary School where he learned to play keyboard and received routine vocal training at the school’s music class department, then known as Doggy. After secondary school, he the took time to work on his music. Having achieved street credibility in a fairly undeveloped Ghanaian dance hall genre at the time, he soon gained recognition with his hit single, “Moko Hoo”, which featured fellow Ghanaian musician Tinny in 2004 using Bandana as his stage name. The song earned him a nomination at the Ghana Music Awards that year. Bandana followed with the hit songs “No Problem” and “Obaa Yaa”. At this point, he was receiving heavy rotation on radio and was backed by a fan base that shot him into the mainstream Ghanaian music scene. Despite his prominence, Bandana went missing in the music circus in Ghana.
We are glad he was able to convince Sarkodie to do the right thing
