The comedian, born Derick Kobina Bonney in an interview with Kwame Dadzie on Ghana Weekend TV blamed Charterhouse for paving the way for all the disrespect which literally destroyed the reputation of Ghanaian comedians.
“I blame charterhouse for setting the precedent for all the disrespect and dishonor going on because if it hadn’t come out to tarnish our image, to destroy our reputation as comedians, I think people wouldn’t have the chance to do the same,” DKB said.
Described as the King of Ghana comedy, DKB explained that Charterhouse, the organizers of the annual comedy and music event, “Night of 1000 Laughs” hailed more praises on Nigeria comedy over Ghana comedy and comedians.
“Why am I saying so? Charterhouse came out to hail praises on Nigeria comedy and literally insult Ghana comedy, from 2010 to 2014,” he stated.
DKB, however, admitted that though some opportunities have always been given to Ghanaian comedians, it does not suffice because,
“if you kill my mother and pay my school fees for one term, you’ve done something right,” he quizzed.
