Derrick Kobina Bonney,aka DKB has revealed in an interview how former first lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings nearly killed his comedy career by a making an unsavory comment relative to his craft.
Nana Konadu surprisingly described the ‘King of Comedy’ as ‘boring’ when she attended Eastern Comedy Show at the Accra International Conference Centre of which DKB was one of the headliners.
Speaking to Mikki Osei Berko, host of ‘After Hours’ on TV3, DKB stated that the former first lady’s comments nearly collapsed his comedy career.
“I mean what she said was the most detrimental thing anyone could say to me. She opened me up to my enemies, to mockery and it was this close to my career crashing. I mean it is not encouraging for a high profile person of that sort to pass such a comment. She said she didn’t say it.”
The ‘King of Comedy’ later apologized to Nana Konadu when they met.
“I met her and I apologized for the night. I didn’t really care whether she has to apologize to me or not. My bit was that I am the young man so of course I had to come clean. I apologized to her that if that night she was truly offended by the kind of content I was doing, then I am sorry. It was the lowest of my career. I lost a lot of shows because of the comment,” he said.
