DKB Wins Best Ghanaian Comedian At The Ghana Entertainment Awards USA For The Second Consecutive Year

Published

on

The 2018 Ghana Entertainment Awards event came off last Saturday, June 30, at the Schomburg Centre in Harlem, New York. This was the second edition and just like the first one, the event was nothing but pure master class. Many deserving winners were crowned with the awards which they were nominated for. One of such outstanding winners is King of GhComedy Derick Kobina Bonney, popularly known as DKB.

Just like last year’s edition, DKB walked home with the top prize as the comedian of the year. It was a keenly contested category as every comedian on that nominees list had proven without doubt that they are world class performers in the comedy genre in entertainment, but it is very unfortunate there has to be one winner and that winner turned out to be the King himself DKB.

Reaching out to the comedian for a few words, he said “It is the second year in a roll I am winning this award. I am very happy that my hard work is paying off. I am also proud of the growth comedy has seen in these past few years. I would also like to thank everyone who voted for me especially my fan base #DKBrepublic”

Other winners on the night include Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Willis Beat, King Promise, Wutah, Ebony, Joyce Blessing etc. The Ghana Entertainment Awards endeavour to exhibit the rich arts and culture of Ghana-West Africa; it serves to further internationalise the diversity of Ghanaian talents.

In addition, #Ghentawards provides public recognition and appreciation of artists, industry professionals, and honourees that demonstrate excellence and significant accomplishments in their entertainment fields such as DKB, the forerunner of comedy in Ghana.

DKB who is set to stage the return of Accra’s premium monthly comedy show “comedy express” this Friday 6th July at Eddys Pizza- Osu branch has promised an exceptional show with other Gh comedians on the bill. Tickets are getting booked at Gh30 on hotline 0571-241-341. Comedy express also airs on Joy Prime as a TV show that plays back all performances at the comedy express event.

Published

September is officially the month for comedy this year. The month is packed with lots of comedy activities which I believe many people would be interested in attending.

From shows such as Comedy Express, Laugh Kitchen, Glo Laffta Fest, Laughline and Banned, September is going to be a hilarious month.

Augustin Dennis, Ghana’s finest comedians and one of Ghana’s comedy exports has set his stage to perform his one man show he calls “Banned”.

According to him, banned is going to be a platform he would use to tell his side of the story involving the issue of his being banned from performing on any GH Comedy platform.

The issue of him being banned sparked a few controversies here and there but he wants to use the show to clear the air. It is a comedy show, so definitely it is going to be a very funny narrative by him.

Banned isn’t going to be just a comedy show, but also an art exhibition and Music. There would also be a session set aside for networking.

Supporting Augustin Dennis on the night is Jacinta, OB, David Oscar and Pararan. Venue for the event is the Silverbird Cinemas, Accra Mall. Ticket is a cool GhC 40.00 single and GhC 60.00 double. The date is on September 15. Augustin Dennis Live is proudly presented by Tealight.

Laughline, the comedy show which run for almost two years, was the most consistent comedy show in the country.

The award winning comedy show however went under the radar for a while and with many shares of fliers on social media from organizers it seems the show would be coming back very soon.

The host of the show, Lekzy DeComic who has done an amazing job with hosting the show over the past few years will be back to thrill patrons to an exciting show. 

His witty and humorous nature has been his greatest arsenal and that has allowed the show to be the longest running comedy show in the country. I am also pretty sure many miss him on that platform.

The show in itself was special, from location to comedians’ performances to free give away from sponsors. The show was one everyone wanted to be a part of and since it is coming back, I am sure it is going to be bigger and better.
