Holby City and Star Wars actor Hugh Quarshie has become the new patron of the Ghana UK Based Achievement Awards (GUBA). It is a platform for showcasing exceptional achievement, talent and ability in the British Ghanaian community; however, it is also a platform to honour the extraordinary accomplishments of Ghanaians worldwide.
Following the success of previous awards, Mr Quarshie agreed to support GUBA citing the work of the organisers as worthy of emulation.
“I must say that I have been impressed with the efficiency of GUBA. Others could learn from you. Thank you for honouring me with this invitation,” the actor remarked.
Founder and CEO of GUBA, Dentaa said, “We are thrilled to have Hugh as our new patron. I am convinced that his quest for excellence will come to bear during the 2012 Awards. The Awards are essentially about honouring our people and highlighting their contribution to both the British and African communities. To have Hugh Quarshie as a supporter is indeed my pleasure and honour.”
“Hugh joins our existing GUBA Ambassadors Jeanette Kwakye-best British female sprinter and John Paintsil-Ghanaian international footballer and Leicester city playmaker, to support GUBA’s effort in encouraging excellence and professionalism among Ghanaians living in the UK.”
GUBA is now in its 3rd year and, following a spectacular GUBA 2011 ceremony, preparations are firmly underway for GUBA in November 2012.
This year’s awards will recognize those who are excelling professionally in Media, Charity work, Business and many other areas. Do you have anyone in mind that you think is worthy of a nomination for GUBA 2012?
