Stand-up comedian, Derick Kobina Bonney better known as DKB has delineated how he sacked his first management team members after they allegedly consumed his food items.
In 2005, DKB gained admission to the University of Ghana where his serious engagement with Stand-up comedy took roots after proving himself at an event on campus. His popularity was enhanced when he represented Ghana at the Big Brother Africa (season 7) in 2012.
Speaking in a one-on-one interview with renowned broadcaster Ekow Koomson, on Ghanaweekend TV, DKB, while revealing how his career in comedy began, delineated how he sacked his first management team members for allegedly consuming food items he was awarded after winning a comedy competition on campus.
“There was this competition on Campus, at Commonwealth hall, when I got there I was asked by the MC whether I can fool? after doubting my capabilities , he gave me the mic and after cracking two jokes, they named me the winner”. DKB told Ekow Koomson
“Immediately I got down from the stage, I became an instant celebrity…I got a manager, PRO, a road manager. In fact I was flanked by my classmates who started managing me…. My reward was 2 sticks of Khebab, 2 cups of juice, a pack of pop corn and something else”. He added.
The most exhilarating part of the interview is when the popular comedian alleged that,” I saw my team member coming but I never got it …When i asked them they were denying of not receiving the items even though you could clearly see oil stains on their mouths ….my management consumed my items and i sacked them that same day”.
