A few days ago, movie producer and curator of Boys Kasa comedy skit, Kofi Asamoah danced to the rhythm of controversy when he stated that white folks are more intelligent and better than blacks.
He also added that he wishes only black people die and leave the white behind to continue making the world a better place. Kofi Asamoah said no matter how it takes, the black man will never be equal to the white because our level of thinking is abysmally low.
His prejudicial comment contained in the video has gone viral which subsequently attracted so much backlash from different angles, including some Ghanaian celebs.
Ghanaian actor, Van Vicker is the latest person to add his voice to the foregoing matter. He took to his social media handle to chastise him for his ‘bad’ comment and asked him to always thank the black man for most of the things he enjoys today.
In a lengthy post made on Instagram, Van Vicker disclosed that, he was deeply worried by Kofi Asamoah’s video.
“As I watched a video @1kofiasamoah posted I was deeply afflicted. He is a movie producer makin a name 4 himself. @ 1time tho I never meant him wished him success.
I surmise Kofi Asamoah meant well wit his video, not sure tho if he was inspiring, condemning or a bit of both. U see, I’ll not castigate him or use boorish words but I wish 2 express my adverse fate @ his choice of words.
How can he perpetrate such a disposition? Hard truth or not it is preposterous. As a colleague filmmaker, he is 2 help change the mindset of the next generation, BLACK & WHITE.
He is 2 project Ghana & Africa in a manner that the World will hanker 4. Kofi, speak the chapter & verse but provide solutions in your films. Sorry, but I’ll not mince my words, I’m utterly disgruntled @ his utterances that “a Black Man can never be wiser than a White Man” because I expect him 2 know better.
Wait, who says that anyway? In this era where even the underdeveloped nations are scrambling though gradually, 2 be a leader at bleeding-edge technologies? No 1 has time for such trivial words. BLACK & WHITE can make this world a better place; 2gether.
Unequivocally, there R uncountable BLACK MEN who R wise, successful & powerful. Just 2 give Kofi a glimpse of enlightenment: When he sits in his car & changes the AUTOMATIC GEAR SHIFT, he should thank THE BALCK MAN, whilst he is @ the TRAFFIC LIGHT he should do same, thank THE BLACK MAN. Every time he looks @ his WATCH he shld thank THE BLACK MAN. When he steps out & the AUTOMATIC ELEVATOR DOOR CLOSES he shld thank THE BLACK MAN.
When he switches on the ELECTRIC LAMP in his living room, he shld thank THE BLACK MAN. When kofi takes a dunk 3 times a day in his MODERN TOILET he better thank THE BLACK MAN. When he takes his girls out & gets them POTATOE CHIPS how can he not thank THE BLACK MAN. If Kofi in his life time sees a live BLIMP WITH ELECTRIC MOTOR & DIRECTIONAL CONTROLS he will thank THE BLACK MAN.
I’m not sure he has SECURITY CAMERAS @ his home but he must thank THE BALCK MAN 4 those @ the Flag Staff House. And God forbid that Kofi would need blood from a BLOOD BANK, he will most definitely thank THE BLACK MAN.”
