The award came after the Representative Council of Ghanaians in Netherlands (RECOGIN) unanimously voted Minister Sonnie Badu as the deserving musician.
The honour came with a token cash amount to support Sonnie Badu’s outstanding ministry.
In a letter signed by the Chairman of Recogin, Charles Vanderpuye and sent to Sonnie Badu and his management, it noted that “ Sonnie Badu is no doubt the best gospel singer acknowledged not only by Ghanaians but also by many African Nationals. The Ghanaian religious youth in Amsterdam consider the name “Sonnie Badu” a perfect role model for all young Ghanaians in the diaspora”
Meanwhile, Sonnie Badu who is a sports fanatic congratulated the Black Stars for their gallant performance at the just ended AFCON 2015 that was hosted by Equatorial Guinea.
He stated that the Stars have by their performance rekindled the love and support they enjoyed from their fans in Ghana and worldwide.
