According to Ghanaian reggae musician and radio host Blakk Rasta (KNUST) Kwame Fordjour, also known as Dr UN, was a student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Dr. UN, who rose to fame in 2020 after staging a “fake UN Award show,” reaffirmed his KNUST affiliation in a recent interview on the Delay Show.
He named John Dumelo and Blakk Rasta as examples of his schoolmates.
Blakk Rasta said he recalls him so well and that they even collaborated on the school radio in an interview with GhanaWeb.
He was at Katanga Hall, which is also known as University Hall, and he was my roommate. In actuality, I was playing reggae there and he was a radio host. This was in 1997; I completed in 2001. The short version is that I met him there and that he was my school mate.
“Together we were at Contacto Radio. He basically was always sleeping in the studio. Every time, he will be in the studio, so at a point, I was wondering if he was a student… Whether it was his time to work or not, he was always in the studio. Almost like the studio manager. He was reading Social Science and at that time, we used to call him Wyclef. He was always smiling, I never saw him sad,” Blakk Rasta told GhanaWeb.
“One thing about this guy is that he takes life easy. He is not the type you will say this is how people who go to KNUST or Havard behave. The guy, you are insulting him, he is laughing. He is a flippant, he takes serious things and he jokes with that. So nobody takes him seriously, even on campus, that was how he was but he has his credential, he’s not a boastful person……he was my mate not only me, Marcus and Shatta Rako were there,” he added.
