Award winning Ghanaian rapper and philanthropist, Okyeame Kwame, received a United States Presidential Volunteer Service Award on Sunday.

The award was given to him in recognition of his humanitarian efforts in the country: the Okyeame Kwame Hepatitis B campaign.

The Presidential Service Award is the highest civilian honour that is granted to US citizens ad permanent residents for their voluntary community service towards development.

Okyeame Kwame was given the award by Dr Pauline Key, on behalf of former American president Barack Obama with a congratulatory plaque which had an inscription, “Outstanding Humanitarian Service in Ghana.”

This isn’t the first time that Okyeame Kwame has been honoured in America; last year, he was given a key to the city of Cincinnati for his humanitarian works. He was also appointed as an iconic figure by the World Hepatitis Alliance.
