Ghanaian Top musician Desmond Blackmore popularly Known as D Black explains how he fell for the scam of the fake UN Awards delivered by Dr Fordjouraka Mr UN.
D-Black and a number of Ghanaian celebrities and personalities received fake UN Awards at a ceremony hosted at the Alisa Hotel on August 28th, 2020.
As we all know how our social media works , Most of these personlities exhibited their uniqueness by showcasing their stories and photos on their social media of them receiving the alleged fake awards organized by Global Public Excellence, headed by one Dr Fordjour.
After a few days after careful scrutiny it came to the realisation that this event in fact was actually a scam and the awards received by these popular celebs including D-Black and the likes were actually fake.
D-Black has talked about the matter as he was scammed by one Dr. Fordjour who is now trending as Dr. UN.
“The ‘event’ nu sef as me and Sark sit down noor, the mc gbaaa 3 times noor wey I look Sark start shake my head. Like 30 mins after we arrived, The Mc tell the Band, ‘pls play another music’s for them’. Musics paaa o, musics lol. The band too responded ‘Ooooooh ah’! dem tire. Dere nooor we start to laugh. We shud have left at that point.”D-Black:
D-Black indicated that he should have left after noticing several weird signals.
“Then Sark got his award, and I wasn’t really watching or following proceedings after that. I was on my phone after I clapped. Then he returned with the golden cup. I said to myself hmmm A cup? I should have left then and there.“
“I told my @iamfadicharles bro we leave in 15 mins, I can’t take this rubbish any more. There noor this man came from nowhere and took the mic from the MC and started MCing the ‘event’. The man talk aaa talk say ‘back when I was in Harvard’. I should have left then and there lol,”his tweet read.
The list of Ghanaian personalities who fell for the fake UN Award include TV presenter Berla Mundi, Natalie Forte, Johnnie Hughes, Dr Okoe Boye, Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Nathaniel Attoh, SK Boafo, etc.
D Black added that he suggested after Sarkodie had returned with his golden cup that they should leave the event grounds but immediately they decided to leave the awards show, then his name was mentioned. So, he had go ahead to receive his award which we all didn’t know its authenticity by then.
“The man said oh yes great man ‘I like ur name’. Then he said oh say something ‘plis’. I was getting annoyed tho. So, I said samtin. Then he said Blackmore, lovely name where’s ur name from? Very stupid question. With saliva coming for the side of his mouth on top. I knew something was wrong. I should have left then and there lol.”
He added also that he was at Aqua Safari with his friends having a good time when Abeiku Santana called him to check on his Twitter timeline because he was trending, at the time he didn’t know what was actually going on.
D Black narrated further that when his promotions manager first sent him the details of the programme, he suspected that everything was not well with the organisers because he was given a booklet as tickets for seven people. Desmond Blackmore, otherwise known as D Black says he suspected that the UN-Kofi Annan awards were fake but he failed to trust the signs and his instincts.
He explained that whilst at the event he saw, Nathaniel Attoh, a Multimedia reporter, coming down with a golden horse, so he decided to ask:
“big bro, is this thing legit? He said yes. I said ‘promise’, swear!! Then I got a call and forgot but I still sat down. I should have left then and there. Lol”.
D Black, alongside Sarkodie, Bernard Okoe-Boye, Chairman Wontumi, Alban Bagbin, Ebenezer Oduro Owusu who is the University of Ghana Vice-Chancellor and a host of others were hoodwinked into believing that they were recipients of a UN-owned award scheme but it has turned out they were victims of a Soft scam.
