Ghanaian comedian Derrick Kobina Bone known in showbiz as Comedian DKB speaks up against the attitude pg Ghanaians towards their own Comedians Read what he posted below.
I started this Ghcomedy career with extreme hatred from some selfish people who wanted to continue making money by bringing Nigerian comedy because my presence will develop Ghana comedy which they think is to their disadvantage.
They tried many destructive strategies including writing fake stories like, DKB is arrogant, “DKB is a boring comedian says Nana Konadu”, a media propaganda campaign for 5years (2009-2014) calling me unfunny thereby destroying any chance of getting sponsorship or fan base etc, it really worked, most people didn’t even want to hear my name, I had not a single Ghanaian company sponsor me.
I decided to look the way of the Lebanese community and to my surprise they held on to me like a brother and sponsored my mega successful #DKBLIVE campus comedy tour, my monthly comedy show @comedyexpressghana and my one man show #DKBpointofview
Up until now, still no Ghanaian company is investing in Ghcomedy but I’m making the best out of my Lebanese brother’s support. Big ups to #LeleRice #Djcola #DJsparkling #GiantMalt #RushEnergydrink
I will not stop until every GhComedian owns a house and range rover. 👊😂
Moral lessons: Foreigners will celebrate you better than your own people, Negativity can never overshadow your hardwork, real fans are silent the haters are loud so don’t listen to the noise.
