A good joke knows no boundaries, once you serve your audience with a very good joke, no matter their tribal, religious background; you will always laugh at a good joke. This was the case when Ghana King of comedy visited Nigeria for a show and crack everyone with his hilarious joke.

Video going round on social media sees the Ghanaian Comedian DKB, performing in front of Nigerian audience in Lekki phase 1, a suburb of Lagos. The comedian who was equal for the task delivered a stunning performance which left the Nigerians nothing but to applaud the comedic genius.

We are all very aware of Nigeria being the hub for Comedy in Africa, in the sense they have many internationally established comedians, so they have experienced good comedy performance. I would say DKB held his own and represented Ghana well and made a statement that “Ghana is catching up with them.”

In the video DKB shared a joke about how Nigerians and Jamaicans give an eyewitness account. Being the first Ghcomedian to host his one man show 2 years ago, DKB adds to his C.V as again being the first Gh comedian to perform in front of Nigerian Patrons in Nigeria.

According to DKB “it’s satisfactory to know you are the one who broke the jinx that, no pure Ghcomedian has ever performed in Nigeria. I went to Nigeria to shot an ad for upcoming Glo lafftafest so I linked up with Nigerian comedian Destalker who then put me on bill for his midweek comedy night at Bukka hut in Lekki phase 1. It was an interesting performance as I engaged their interest and made my jokes very relatable.”

His protégé show Comedy Express: Ghana’s premium monthly comedy show is scheduled to come off on Friday, August 3 and subsequently, every first Friday of every month at the Osu Branch of Eddy’s Pizza. For more information about the show, call or WhatsApp 0243-7555-31 / 0571-241-341.

Funny Video: DKB Proves Kuami Eugene & Lynx Entertainment Are All “otita fu”

Published

on

Flatulence is part of human nature, it is very inevitable. What ticks most people about passing gas is, whoever passes the gases never owns up and very silly methods have to be developed to fish the individual out.

As we are all aware, Kuami Eugene was in the news for the wrong reason even though he had released a new single “wish me well” .

When asked if he would consider working with Patapaa on a song, the Lynx Entertainment artiste said No and gave a reason that Patapaa’s kind of music is not his style and that it is noisy.

Many people felt the statement by Kuami Eugene was uncalled for and many went after his head for it. What no one expected was the “diss” Song by Patapaa to Eugene. The content of this song is very hilarious, according to Patapaa, Kuami Eugene was seated by him during the Ghana Meets Naija music concert and was just passing gas. Hence the titles of his diss track “Otita fu”.

Derick Kobina Bonney popular known as DKB during his performance at comedy bar show decided to take a swipe at the issue. In a video released by the comedian, he is seen performing to the audience at the show and in his joke, the King of Gh Comedy mocks the entire Lynx Entertainment signed artiste to be “tita fu”.

He cleverly used each of their catch phrases to create a comedic masterpiece which left everyone laughing.

DKB however is bringing back Accra’s premium monthly comedy show “Comedy Express” after a long break. The first show is on Friday July 6th 2018 at Eddy’s Pizza; Osu Branch. Rate is a cool GhC 40.00 at the gate and GhC 30.00 when you buy advanced tickets. Time is at 7pm sharp. There will be lots of giveaways from sponsors including free non-alcoholic champagne from DJ sparkling beverages, Huawei Y series souvenirs etc. so make it a point to be there and ease off some work stress. For more info, you can call or WhatsApp 057-124-1341 / 024-375-5531.

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.

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.
