The Mo Ibrahim Foundation is a foundation which was founded by the Sudanese-British billionaire businessman, Mo Ibrahim. Mo Ibrahim is also the founder of Celtel, a telecommunication company which according to Wikipedia, has over 24million phone subscribers in 14 African countries.

However, he sold Celtel in 2005 for a reported fee of $3.4billion and set up the Mo Ibrahim Foundation in 2006 to encourage better governance in Africa. He is also a member of the Africa Regional Advisory board of the London Business School.

According to the Forbes 2011 Billionaire list, he had an estimated net worth of $1.18 billion which made him the 692nd richest person in the world.

Now, on to Sarkodie, shall we? Sarkodie, undisputedly Africa’s finest rapper has been recognized by the Mo Ibrahim Foundation as he was wished a happy birthday by them.

The Foundation also recounted Sarkodie’s genius performance during the Mo Ibrahim Foundation (MIF) Accra concert which was held in 2015.
