However an incident where Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth interrupted Pat Thomas on stage, grabbing the mic from him so that he (Basketmouth) could have time to perform is causing a backlash on social media.
Entertainment journalist and critic, Francis Doku wrote on Facebook: “The show last night was good. Nabil Alhassan and his team planned and executed a good show at “The Lords of the Ribs” comedy show. Music was superb with Kwadwo Akwaboah and his son Kwabena and so were Pat Thomas and his daughter Nana Yaa. Comedy was good. Don Dkb was superb once again and he rightly got a standing ovation at the end. SIM Card’s knowledge of Ghanamanisms was surprising.
“The lowest and most despicable part was when headline comedy act Basketmouth stormed the stage, collected the microphone from Pat Thomas while he was performing and asked him to leave the stage. I have never seen anything as disrespectful. I mean imagine a comedy show in Lagos with a Nigerian legend like Sonny Ade performing and a Ghanaian comedian like DKB goes on stage, takes the mic from him and asks him to leave the stage because he had been waiting for too long. I don’t know how the organisers handled it, but such gross disrespect as exhibited by Basketmouth on a Ghanaian stage to such a big name veteran should be condemned in no uncertain terms.”
Many agreed with Francis’ comments on the issue.
