DKB for some days now has been under heavy criticism for some acclaimed unfunny and vulgar jokes that Ghanaians say he cracks. His criticism came to light when media reports suggested that Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings called him a boring character and walked out from his performance at a recent comedy show. However, there’s a new twist as Mrs. Rawlings is asking “who is DKB?” during an explanation for her infamous DKB-exit.
The Former First Lady on Onua Fm’s ‘Anigye Mmre’ entertainment show when asked about the “boring-DKB issue” wondered who DKB is but well remembers that out of the comedy shows she’s been to, Ghanaian comedians have employed too many vulgar expressions in their jokes.
Talking about her recent experience where she couldn’t sit through the show, she said
“What I can say is that anytime we are having a comedy show, the comedian needs to sit and think over the jokes they want to share with the audience. From the beginning of the show all the Gh comedians who performed the night used vulgar language throughout their performance”.
As to the exact reason why she made an early exit from the show, she said it was for the sake of her grandchildren as it was getting late. “I wanted to go with my grandchildren. For some reason, I realized it was too late, so I went with two friends” she said.
In her submission which seems like a damage-repair to DKB’s status of dry jokes cracker credited to her name, she however still registered how displeased she was that night but generalized her rant against all Ghanaian performers on the night.
“We all felt that if this is the way we share jokes in Ghana, then it’s a disgrace to us as a country. I wanted to listen to the music [but] after some time my friends said this is unacceptable. The way the comedians were using vulgar language throughout, I told my friends I want to go so if they are ready we should go. We sat down for long and kept waiting if it could get better.” Nana Konadu stated.
3news.com further reported how Mrs. Rawlings lamented on the vulgar diction by the likes of DKB saying that “Ghana has gone beyond what they did that night. I have been to a number of comedy shows where Ghanaian and Nigerian comedians were featured on but I don’t think Nigerians can perform better than us but I don’t think they (Nigerians) use vulgar languages in their comedies.”
It’s still clear that if the night wasn’t boring for Mrs. Rawlings and her friends, she wouldn’t opt for an early exit and GhanaCelebrities.com considers her explanation as DAMAGE REPAIR MECHANISM. What do you think?
