Bechem Boss Honoured
Bankroller of Bechem United Kingsley Owusu-Achau's contribution to the development of sports in the country has received due recognition at a special awards ceremony held in the Brong Ahafo Region.
Mr. Owusu-Achau, also the Managing Director of Top Kings Estates Limited, received the award in recognition of his benevolence and humanitarian gestures to the under-privileged in the region.
For his efforts, he received the topmost honour at the Brong Ahafo Honorary Awards held a few days ago in Berekum.
Nicknamed Agama, he has financed Bechem United from Division Three through to the elite league. He co-financed the construction of the Bechem Stadium, which has served as the home ground for the Premier League club as well as a fully-furnished 28-room club house equipped with a swimming pool.
As the past chairman of the Ghana Volleyball Association, his company donated a three-bedroom house to the National Best Teacher and also offers scholarships to under-privileged individuals from the region.
The ceremony, arranged by Shalom Radio and Bombisco Production, was to celebrate natives of the Brong Ahafo Region who have excelled in their respective fields of endeavour.
Other personalities honoured at the ceremony were Dormaahene Oseadeyo Agyemang Badu II; a former Minister of Local Government Adjei Darko, as well as musicians DSP Kofi Sarpong, Akosua Agyapong and Grace Ashy.
