Speaking with Streetzhub.com, the comedian complained about how every time on these radio shows, there are radio presenters and radio panelist who are very quick to compare Gh comedians with those outside forgetting that to get to the level at which these other comedians got, they had the support of their very own countrymen.
“I always get hurt and sad whenever I hear people say Ghanaian comedians are not funny especially these radio personalities. You would have a comedy show were these same radio presenters are present and you’d catch them laughing at the jokes we share on stage. But it’s unfortunate we’d have these same presenters go and sit in their studios and say bluntly; Ghanaian comedians are not funny. So I want to ask whose jokes they were laughing at, Jamaicans?” the agitated comedian said.
“Comedy has come a long way and I am proud of the strides Gh comedians have been able to achieve. From hosting a sold out show at the National Theater to hosting sold out shows every month, comedy in Ghana has grown. So when they (Radio Presenters) sit and have discussion on whether comedians in Ghana are funny or not, that time could be used to promote the industry. The Nigerians didn’t get up and have a very strong comedy industry, their media houses supported them, so what is stopping Ghana media in doing same? And before they compare us to the Nigerians, they should compare themselves with their colleagues in other countries, and see if they are making any improvements in their fields as well.” He added.
This comes after the comedian listened to a radio show where the presenter and his had a discussion about Comedy in Ghana and how they believe Gh Comedians are not funny. Much respect to the Dons in the industry the King DKB, The Dancehall Comedian Emperor Foster Romanus, Comedian OB, Comedian Khemikal, The Queen Jacinta, Id James Brown, David Aglah to mention a few. To the Radio Presenters, if you can’t join them don’t destroy them.
