Former first lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings reportedly walked out of DKB’s comedy show just about a week ago and declared him as boring, an issue which has been trending since then.
Whilst the founder of the National Democratic Party (NDP) has since pulled back from the boring tag, what she maintains is that DKB utilises vulgarity in his comedy and as far as she’s concerned, that isn’t funny at all.
Live Fm’s Vanessa Gyan had a conversation with Nana Konadu on the topic, and this is what she said.
“…I don’t even know why i’m trending. I’m not even in Accra at the moment but my phone keeps ringing. There are so many other important issues I tackle, and the media never pick up those stories,”
“After starting the show late, a comedian came on stage without any apologies saying, ‘Good evening….’, We are not in your house. At least apologise for the late start. Warm up the crowd.” she continued.
“I didn’t find the show funny. The vulgarity doesn’t make me laugh. Those next to me didn’t find it funny. As a comedian, you must give thought in what you say and do. Being vulgar is not a joke.”
Nana Konadu confirmed the comedian obsessed with vulgarity was DKB, criticising him in relation to a Nigerian comedian who was funny without vulgarity.
“There was a Nigerian guy who was funny without vulgarity. The Ghanaian comedian spoke about s*xual things, how they behave in bed. In the Conference Center, it’s a no, no…..maybe in a village.
“I’m lucky I didn’t take my grandchildren. Even with adult comedy there’s a certain level that you just don’t go to. There were many people who didn’t find it funny. When you cater to people who bought tickets make people laugh without being vulgar. If you are a s*xual comedian than go to a s*xual theatre but there is also a way for a joke to be s*xual but masked in a way that it’s funny,” she added.
