Diego Awards: And the winner is… Felix Klutse

The prolific Felix Klutse

It feels good to be associated with successful people. Oh yes, not all of us can win awards or attain fame but at least we can boast of a couple of friends who have cracked the nut.

I have never won an award in my life before except books at speech and prize given days way back in primary and junior high school [laughs]. But friends tell me I am exceptional and I always make them proud.

Of course, one does not have to win award(s) in order to stand out. But I am always proud of friends who are daring and ready to unlock even when it seems unachievable. One of such is Africa’s most decorated young investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Just today I had a press release in my inbox saying the first ever Ghanaian winner in the Diageo Africa Business Reporting Awards is Felix Dela Klutse of the Daily Guide. “Wow!” I screamed as if I was the actual recipient.

Klutse beats journalists from publications across the continent and international outfits like Reuters, the BBC and the Economist. In Ghana we say “Ayekoo!” meaning CONGRATULATIONS.

I have known Klutse since our early days of journalism in the late 90s or early 20s. He has since metamorphosed into one of the finest business journalists in Ghana. No wonder he has achieved this feat. Keep your head up Klutse because this is just the beginning.

And congratulations to my mother company Africa Interactive for snatching the BEST USE OF NEW MEDIA IN A STORY category. Goed gedaan!  [Well Done!]
