Sonnie Badu is a multi-award-winning Ghanaian gospel musician based in the UK. He has touched many lives through his worship and praise songs mostly across the shores of Africa and Europe.
Last year, he showcased three degrees to attest to God’s grace and goodness which were attained in the space of four months. These were a Bachelor’s Degree in Ministry, a Master’s Degree in Christian Leadership, and a Doctorate in Musicology. This achievement won him a lot of applause from the public. Today, he is addressed as Dr. Sonnie Badu.
The name Dr. Sonnie Badu has been registered on our minds for a while until someone suddenly surfaced to question the credibility of his degrees as well the institution (Trinity International University of Ambassadors) that awarded him.
It is alleged that the institution in question isn’t accredited by either the Accreditation Service for International Schools (ASIS) in the UK or Higher Learning Commission (HLC) in the USA. This finding has sparked quite a number of mixed reactions from the public.
If you ask me, there’s nothing absolutely wrong with which institution awarded the degrees or how long it took to achieve them. As Ghanaians, we can attest to the non-effective educational curriculum we’re running. Most of our graduates leave school with little or no practical knowledge of how to utilize the theories pushed down their throats. We’re only good talkers with no actions to show for.

Dr. Sonnie Badu is producing results in the field of his supposed degrees and that’s all that matters. He can boast of 38 books, 4 albums, and founder of a music academy. Dear Ghanaians, this is no mean achievement to call for cyberbully and tongue lashing. The new normal care less about education and certificates – we need positive results and if we’re getting it, that’s it.
It’s high time we encouraged one other to soar beyond certificates and be problem-solving individuals. Question is, if he attended Harvard yet makes no impact, what’s the essence of his certificate? Hi Ghana! We can do better.
