President of UT Holdings, Prince Kofi Amoabeng, and Chief Executive of Softribe , Herman Chinery-Hesse, will be honoured at this year's Ghana UK Based Achievement Awards (GUBA).

According to organizers they are rewarding the two gentlemen for their outstanding contribution to the Ghanaian economy.

Dentaa Boateng, Founder and CEO of GUBA Awards, says a lot of research went into selecting the two entrepreneurs.

She said the two personalities will serve as a "great role model for young Ghanaians" and hence the need for their works to be recognised.

The Awards, which comes off on November 16, will be held in London. 32 other individuals and businesses will also be awarded.

The GUBA categories are divided into sections that represent the Ghanaian flag, i.e. red, gold, green and the black star.
