A social media user identified as Manuel Mensah has contacted The Council For Higher Education to verify the authenticity of US-based Ghanaian gospel musician, Sonnie Badu’s new titles.
This comes after Sonnie Badu had posted a photo of himself bearing a couple of such titles as Dean, Professor, Doctor, etc.
The singer-songwriter announced that he had been awarded a Bachelors’s degree in Ministry, a Masters’s degree in Christian leadership and a Doctorate in Musicology from the Trinity International University of Ambassadors.
“What an amazing day it has been. A second doctorate in the basket Doctorate in Musicology, Master’s degree in Christian Leadership, Bachelor’s degree in Ministry thanks to @trinityiua who took their time to walk me through in spite of my busy schedule,” he announced on social media.
The head pastor of the Rockhill Church in Maryland has since updated his social media bio with these titles.
Social media users were alarmed by the development and questioned how he could attain three new degrees within the short period of four months.
Manuel Mensah took it upon himself to find answers to the enigma. He sent an email and got a response from the Council. The Council said that they are not able to ascertain if the school is accredited by a known institution.
Sonnie Badu has responded to critics who “brought their own pull him down” to tarnish his image. According to him, Lions don’t respond to frogs.
“When they don’t understand the frequency of your grace and your hard work behind the scenes they bring their own PHD (pull him down) LIONS DONT RESPOND TO FROGS … #DrBadu @tiuauniversity God has us ..” Dr. Badu wrote in response.
