Sonnie & ‘His Kids’
Celebrated award-winning Ghanaian international Gospel Icon, Dr. Sonnie Badu, has officially adopted the Chosen Children Center, an orphanage home based in Darkuman, a suburb of Accra under the ‘Badu Foundation.’
The adoption, which formed part of his philanthropic projects, would see Sonnie Badu taking care of major needs of the orphanage.
Dr. Sonnie Badu, who was in the company of his mother and family members, made this known during a brief donation ceremony held at the premises of the orphanage on Tuesday.
He used the occasion as part of the season of giving to present food among other items and cash to the Managing Director of Chosen Children Center, Madam Gertrude Mensah-Bonsu.
According to him, his mother Julia Agyemang has been a loyal partner of the Chosen Children Center since she had always touched lives, hence he thought it laudable for him to step in and also offer help to the kids.
“I thank God for the wonderful work he is doing through the Badu Foundation; I must say this is one of the many projects across Ghana, Nigeria, and Africa at large. We want to give hope to the next generation to secure the future of Ghana and Africa. I further pledge to offer support every month to this orphanage,” Dr. Sonnie Badu said.
On her part, Madam Gertrude Mensah-Bonsu was very grateful and thanked Sonnie Badu and his team especially his Mother Julia for the kind gesture.
She revealed that her center, which was established about 9 Years ago, now takes care of over 60 children, who are mostly orphans, street children, abandoned children and school drop-outs.
She urged other organizations to also come to the aid of the center since a lot needs to be done to take good care of the children.
Dr. Sonnie Badu is a businessman, motivational speaker, and an author. Since his emergence onto the gospel music industry, he has been an influential figure in African Gospel music. He is arguably the most flourishing gospel export emerging out of Africa in recent years.
One of the most consistently popular live acts in the world, Sonnie have been to almost every corner of the world and is high on every best worship list; his trademark vocals are as recognizable as his custom-made fashion accessories.
His stage act is the impressive mark of an artist who knows what keeps his immense audience loyal. His unique blend of intimate worship, high-quality visuals, and his energetic style of ushering congregations into the presence of God is affecting lives worldwide.
Being Listed as number 57 in the top 100 Most Influential Ghanaians of all time, Sonnie Badu is determined to keep soaring.
Again he was recently honoured as the most outstanding Ghanaian in diaspora in the Netherlands and also listed in the top 11 most influential Ghanaians abroad. He has numerous businesses such as “The Worship Radio”, Badu Homes, Dizney Daycare, iWorship Magazine, Eagle Eye Football Agency, Private Jet Consulting, Four24 Records, and so many more.
He has managed to globalize his music empire with teams all over, especially in Canada, Europe, USA, and Africa. Innovation is not for the faint of heart, nor for those who lack the capacity. Sonnie is the only African gospel artiste to fill stadiums to capacity, an achievement in which only Osibisa, a secular group could achieve.
