In the end, it all happened through a virtual award ceremony where he received the recognition. On this special moment, this is what ha spoke, “This is a rare honor. UN recognition is very special. I have done whatever little I could, in my own humble way, for my fellow countrymen without any expectations. However, to be recognized and awarded feels good. I fully support the UNDP in its endeavors to achieve the SDGs by 2030. Planet Earth and mankind will greatly benefit from the implementation of these goals.”
After the news of him getting the award broke, all his fans started sending congratulation messages across the country and abroad.
