The much publicized comedy show “The Lord of the Ribs” headlined by Nigerian act Basket Mouth came off last night Saturday April 4 2015 at the Accra International Conference Centre where reports suggest former Ghanaian representative to Big Brother Africa and comedian DKB delivered excellently winning him a standing ovation.
Music performances from Nana Yaa and Kwadwo Akwaboah were also rated top notch.
However, a report by ace Ghanaian entertainment journalist Francis Doku, suggests that something totally despicable happened which must be brought to light.
Read his account as shared on his wall on Facebook;
“The show last night was good. Nabil Alhassan and his team planned and executed a good show at “The Lords of the Ribs” comedy show.
Music was superb with Kwadwo Akoaboah and his son Kwabena and so were Pat Thomas and his daughter Nana Yaa.
Comedy was good. Don Dkb was superb once again and he rightly got a standing ovation at the end. SIM Card’s knowledge of Ghanamanisms was surprising.
The lowest and most despicable part was when headline comedy act Basketmouth stormed the stage, collected the microphone from Pat Thomas while he was performing and asked him to leave the stage.
I have never seen anything as disrespectful. I mean imagine a comedy show in Lagos with a Nigerian legend like Sonny Ade performing and a Ghanaian comedian like DKB goes on stage, takes the mic from him and asks him to leave the stage because he had been waiting for too long.
I don’t know how the organisers handled it, but such gross disrespect as exhibited by Basketmouth on a Ghanaian stage to such a big name veteran should be condemned in no uncertain terms.”
Well, unless we are made to believe it was rehearsed and part of his entry to stage (which I doubt), organizers have a lot of pacification to make.
