Ghanaian comedian, Derrick Kobina Bonney, more commonly known as DKB has compared the nation’s comedy scene to a “Kindergarten” child who still has a long stretch of growth to attain.
Asking Ghanaians to be patient with the players in the nation’s comedy industry, the one-time Big Brother Africa housemate told Morning Starr host, Kafui Dey on Starr 103.5FM, Friday, that the young crop of comedians who have come on the scene are working hard to attain the height of excellence expected of them.
“The mistake [is] people like to compare the Ghanaian comedy scene to that of Nigeria’s. But they do not realize that Ghana’s industry is yet to flourish and reach that level.
“Look at this scenario, we can say Nigeria a long time ago has been working, has a chamber and hall self-contained apartment, probably married with a child. Now Ghanaian comedy just finished nursery and is now in kindergarten 1. Why would you compare a kindergarten kid to somebody who is married?” he asked.
DKB is currently at the University of Cape Coast where he would be staging the DKB Live comedy show at the Auditorium 900 later in the evening.
Sharing the stage with him will be his fellow comedy kings, Ajeezay, Foster Romanus, Augustine Dennis and Sarkodie Acheampong.
Also performing tonight is VGMA Artiste of the Year nominee MzVee and Nero X.
According to DKB, Ghanaians must be more supportive as there is room for growth and improvement.
“Give us time for us to develop and there is hope… let me tell you in ‘boys, boys’ term we ‘dey’ discover more fools in Ghana.”
