Ghanaian gospel musician Sonnie Badu has fired back at critics for challenging his three academic degrees.
After describing his critics as frogs, he did a live video last night and cautioned them to be careful with what they say about him.
He also detested how quick Ghanaians are in rubbishing people’s achievements but would rather want to elevate the negatives.
According to Sonnie, he worked hard to earn his degrees.
This comes on the back of the backlash he has received after claims he has been awarded three degrees in a space of four months.
The “baba” hitmaker says apart from his two honorary doctorate degrees, he also has a Ph.D., a master’s degree, and a bachelor’s degree.
But a Twitter user indicated that he used Google Scholar search and emails to dig deep into all his certificates but found no results.
The tweep said he also reached out to the Council for Higher Education Accreditation – the institution responsible for the accreditation of all universities and colleges in the United States of America – to confirm if Trinity International University of Ambassadors, a place Sonnie Bodu acquired most of his certificates existed, but the feedback proved otherwise.
This has re-ignited the conversation of how people buy academic titles for themselves without necessarily working for them.
