Award-wining vocalist and Physician Specialist, KniiLante, also known as Dr NiiLante Blankson, was last Saturday November 16, 2019, honored with a Special Award at an event organized by The Trust Hospital (TTH) at the Ibis Styles Accra Airport City Hotel.
The Special Award is recognition by the Doctors of TTH of KniiLante’s hard work, being the hospital’s first-ever permanent Physician Specialist, who also developed the medical facility’s first-ever treatment protocols for internal medicine and other general practices he initiated.
In receiving the award, KniiLante, the versatile musician who masterfully composes music across genres from afro-pop, ballads to reggae, had this to say;
“I’m grateful to all the doctors, my colleagues, who have helped me out in my stay at The Trust Hospital and I’m also grateful to all the nurses who have been there to help us out, the orderlies and everyone.’’
In sharing the news with his fans on social media, @KNIILANTE wrote on his twitter and Instagram pages with an accompanying video and photos from the ceremony;
“Hello fam!…i’ve got a message for you all. Remember to stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learning, work hard and never give up on your dreams even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not clichés but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.”
He further went on write “I was honored by fellow doctors. Truly it has not been easy but I give thanks. Thanks also to all my colleague doctors, the CEOs (past and present), the nurses, pharmacists, the paramedical staff etc that I’ve worked with. Finally thanks to my family and Deluge Entertainment for putting up with my crazy life and schedules. Love! Kpashhh!!”
KniiLante is currently promoting his latest afrobeats banger, Baby Be Mine featuring Chymny Crane produced by itzCj Beatz. The video directed by Oshkari Films is almost hitting a 100k views on youtube.
Below is the citation that was presented to KniiLante;
Your hard work has not gone un-noticed. You were always there to make sure we kept our heads up.
As the first permanent physician specialist of the trust hospital, you did not only bring uniformity to patient care through the development of protocols but also the initiation of weekly ward rounds on the medical wards.
Your understanding of team work coupled with your penchant for detail and an enviable sense of humor made you not only the toast of your colleagues but also the entire staff of trust hospital.
Today as we colleagues celebrate you, we do so with pride in recognition of your unique contribution to brand trust hospital.
We wish to express our profound gratitude to you for your years of dedicated service to The Trust Hospital.
FROM TTH DOCTORS.
