PRO of Charter house, George Quaye, has bemoaned a tight corner he may find himself in contracting King of Comedy, DKB, to perform on stage again – due to the current backlash at the comedian, caused by a former first lady of Ghana, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.
Empathizing with DKB, who according to the former first lady, is boring as a comedian, George posted on his Facebook wall:
“Look, making people laugh, when you don’t know a quarter of the many issues on their minds and in their hearts isn’t an easy task. Comedians all over the world suffer bad days. #DKB had one bad night and so what?
“We suddenly forget all the many great nights he’s had? We suddenly forget how he’s cracked people up time and again on many different platforms? Give the man a break! One bad night isn’t enough to say he’s not funny!”
A female commenter on George’s wall by name, Ronke Rubabat Oseni, sarcastically responded:
“Hahahahaha Dkb should have a taste of his own medicine.. After all its not poisonous. He makes fun of people and ofcos it’s right if people make fun of him.”
With a calm disposition, George took turns to explain the repercussions of the current pick apart on KDB and Ghanaian comedians in general. He published a mini-thesis for a response:
“That’s where you are wrong my dear sis. DKB making fun of people is what puts food on his table. When he does that, everyone understands it’s a joke. No one takes it to heart and no one frowns at it.
I do admit it may not always go down well, but that’s the nature of the job. Now what’s being done to him isn’t same. What’s being done is going to kill his spirit and make him recoil into his shell.
What’s being done will make him unappealing to consumers of his product. What’s being done, will make it impossible for me to put him onstage because sponsors and patrons may object.
What’s being done is just wrong and we need to stop it now! We all raised our voices when we said they weren’t working hard enough.
Today look at them, organizing shows almost every week. Not waiting for anyone to give them stages or microphones. Working their asses off every single day. Is it too much to ask that we appreciate them? We are destroying our own…continue.”
