Everyone has a bad day at work at some point and it does appear at the latest Easter Comedy Show, notable comic, Derick Kobina Bonney alias DKB had a relatively bad day at the Accra International Conference Centre
While Lekzy Da Comic, Jacinta, Acapella from Nigeria and Salvodor from Uganda all had passes for their output on the night with emcee Khemikal getting hailed for his superb skills on the night, some patrons especially Ghana’s former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, was blunt in her assessment of DKB’s jokes exiting when he was to mount the stage saying to the hearing of others “don’t mind him; his jokes are boring.”
When Pulse.com.gh tracked her to ascertain why the harsh words, she opined: “You don’t have to be vulgar talking about women’s part, men’s part, sleeping with each other in a very daft way. It is was uncouth behaviour. Excuse me for saying, I wasn’t there for that kind of thing. I’m not a child. A joke is a joke. You need to sit down and think and ask yourself, what is it that the people want, what can make them laugh and then you plan it out and come out to deliver it,” she stressed.
Madam Agyemang-Rawlings added: “You shouldn’t come and tell us about who is sleeping with who, who’s man’s size is smaller. I left because it was not right. Everybody has paid to come and watch with their children and there you are with this act. The Nigerian man was really good. He dwells on jokes and gives examples of things that the police were doing that were wrong, how he got into trouble with the police, how he got out of it. They were things that were funny. I’m saying once again jokes are not vulgarity, they are different. If Ghanaians say they want to become comedians and all they can do is to give us vulgarity, I’m not interested. I think it is wrong for our country to accept such behaviour. It is totally unacceptable.”
Music was dished to patrons by Becca, Kofi Bentil, B Ryt and Ofori Amponsah.
