Minister Tim Godfrey, host of the recent FEARLESS concert which had American gospel minister, Travis Greene as the headline act, has just bagged a Honorary Doctorate degree in Fine arts department of Musicology at the Trinity International University of Ambassadors, America.
The Nigerian music minister was said to have been recommended by Dr. Sonnie Badu, another African music minister.
After the presentation of the awards in the USA on the 28th of October, here’s what Dr. Sonnie Badu had to say:
“Work hard in silence and let your results speak for itself” is one adage I’ve always encouraged myself with. To God be the glory that indeed my sleepless nights are paying off. God has surely given me power when I least expected it in the United States and beyond. Today, I’m glad to say that I serve as a board member of Trinity International University @trinityiua, a WOMI United Nations Ambassador with Mum Dr Juanita Bynum holding two honorary doctorates; with another PHD looming to make it three…. and the list goes on as a recipient of the Life Time Achievement Award from the 45th President, hold the key to the city of Brooklyn New York, a recipient of Humanitarian Awards, to name a few. I have also been given the right to appoint who I deem fit for an award. It’s unfortunate and sad that where I’m from #Africa they place little or no value on these kinds of achievement, let alone on a foreigner. Because they don’t value what we do for our motherland.
Here in the United States, such achievements are a big deal because they open major doors. Therefore on this day, I’m in high spirit and with much accorded respect congratulate you my brother Tim Godfrey. You have set a record and I will not let this go by easily. Love you very much. Congratulations!! @trinityiua @therockhillchurch #DrBadu
Minister Tim Godfrey had this emotional words to say..
“As a child … We couldn’t afford sandals to go to school… We couldn’t afford Secondary school… And so much more …
When God wants to embarrass you,he doesn’t look at your background,
The Next time you see me, address me Appropriately 😪
