Kefee becomes UN Peace Ambassador
Her marriage may have crumbled but Branama crooner, Kefee, is still soaring.
In fact, the pretty singer was recently honoured with the prestigious International Young Ambassador for Peace Award in an event held in Lagos recently.
Speaking about the honour, Kefee said, “I am really excited and happy to get an award like an Ambassador for Peace. It is something that came at a time when I needed some encouragement. And I'm happy people still see what I do, and appreciate me.”
On why she thinks she was honoured Kefee said, “I guess the organisers may have seen my works. They called to tell me to come pick the Award because they liked what I was doing. They love my music, they love the charity works I am doing, and all that.”
Kefee's first assignment as a Peace Ambassador is to be part of the Performing Act delegates to the Global Peace Festival, which would be hosted by Nigeria in March. The event will host delegates from 70 countries.
The Ambassador for Peace is an initiative of the Universal Peace Forum, an NGO in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. In Nigeria, the awards are organised by UPF's affiliates, Youth Federation for World Peace.
Past winners of the awards include Keke Ogungbe, D'banj and Tuface Idibia.
