Waris Abdul Umaru aka Waris, a Ghanaian comedian who is known for creating fun out of trending issues today had a bad day when he picked on Sarkodie’s 2-year-old child, Titi but renders a quick and remorseful apology.
In a tweet, the comedian made a joke which was not palatable about Sarkodie’s daughter saying she is ”RIPE” and soon people will tear and eat.
He tweeted, “Sarkodie’s daughter is becoming RIPE. Very soon ppl will tear and eat” ─with a laughing emoji.
His tweet was met with backlash from advocacy groups and well-respected personalities. Waris acknowledging his wrong quickly went back to the same platform to render an apology stating unequivocally his stance on pedophiles and added he is not one and that he abhors the act and will do all he can to prevent that.
”To anyone offended by my tweet concerning sarkodie’s daughter kindly tamper justice with mercy.
Especially to @sarkodie @TracySarkcess @thenanaaba @Santokh72 @bridgetot
I’m apologetically sorry, it won’t happen again. To ere is human, to forgive is divine.”
His apology tweet was welcomed with an acceptance and advice from meaningful lovers of his art and craft as he promised not to repeat such an act again.

DKB Gets Back His 4,000Ghc From Dafabet To Do Charity.
It is no news now that comedian DKB lost his bet on Ghana Black Stars to win the African Cup of Nations Tournament. Well, can you blame him, most Ghanaians were optimistic that this time around the Stars will bring back Gold. To his [DKB] disappointment the Black Stars exited at the second stage of the competition.
The comedian after the loss expressed his disappointment and admitted this was the first time he has ever placed a bet. In a social media post right after the match that saw the Ghana Black Stars out of the tournament, the comedian said “The First time I decided to put my confidence in the Black Stars and place my bet, Ghc 4000 is gone, I could have used it for something profitable like for charity…” Nothing could spell hurt more than the video the comedian put out after the disappointing defeat.
Additional information reaching us says the sports betting company; DAFABET, has decided to give back the Ghc 4000 to DKB to be used for Charity. According to the Country Manager Sybil Diawuo-Appiah, "DKB's bet got a lot of mileage across social media and news lines, so we decided to appreciate him by returning his stake amount to him for any charity of his choice”. This would mean the money is not completely lost, but would serve as a benefit to many under privileged individuals in our society.
Reaching DKB he had this to say, "I want to thank Dafabet for this privilege. It is a great favour done me. Now for my charity of choice, I will want to stick to the reason why I staked the bet, football, and help the Ghana Amputee Football Association with it. I'll donate it to them so they use it for anything they deem important to uplift their fraternity.
Dafabet, one of Asia’s and Africa’s largest gaming companies, is now fully incorporated in Ghana and licensed by the gaming commission of Ghana under the gaming act 2006 and operating on www.dafabet.com.gh

Murphy Plans Return To Stand-up Comedy.
It's been years since Eddie Murphy performed a stand-up set, but, as he tells host Jerry Seinfeld in an exclusive clip from Netflix's upcoming 11th season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he may stage a comeback soon.
"You know that you not doing stand-up drives people crazy. You know that, right?" Seinfeld tells Murphy.
Murphy says Seinfeld isn't the first one to express interest, revealing that late comedian Don Rickles would pester him repeatedly about coming back to perform.
"I'm going to do it again. Everything just has to be right," Murphy says. "You have to get up there and start working out."
For Murphy, coming back to the comedy scene means working the clubs again.
"You should buy the Comic Strip, and I'll come and work out there," Murphy suggests.
"If you want to do that, I'll do it. I'll call it Jerry Seinfeld's Comic Strip," Seinfeld responds.
Murphy is one of several guests who sit in the passenger seat in the newest season of Seinfeld's show. Ricky Gervais, Matthew Broderick, Seth Rogen, Jamie Foxx, Martin Short, Sebastian Maniscalo, Melissa Villasenor, Barry Marder and Bridget Everett will also appear.
