Popular comedian DKB, born Derrick Kobina Bonney, says he wants to promote comedy as a viable and lucrative sector within the creative arts.

DKB has over the years consistently campaigned for respect and support for Ghanaian comedians and at a point even blamed Ghanaian journalists for doing very little to support the country’s comedians.

The comedian has told NEWS-ONE that his DKBLIVE Comedy Tour is one of the ways he is campaigning for respect and support for Ghanaian comedians and the comedy sector.

DKBLIVE Comedy Tour is a weekly tour event, where he takes comedy and music to the doorsteps of various tertiary institutions across the country.

“The season 2 of the tour is set to promote Ghanaian comedians to the active youth across the tertiary landscape,” he said in a release to NEWS-ONE.

Speaking on the same subject last Friday at the launch of the Big Weekend Afro Beats Festival, DKB in his characteristic satiric style, unleashed his frustrations on the media.

“You guys [journalists] do not support us and when we complain you say we are not funny; yet you are here laughing… Let me use this opportunity to thank ABL for really supporting comedy made in Ghana. Castle Milk Stout has really supported all our tours and I wish the media had given us same support,” DKB, MC for the launch, said.

Tomorrow, Saturday, November 22, DKB and his Ecstacy Entertainment team will launch the second edition of the tour at the Ghana Technology University in Accra.

Among comedians to grace the Ghana Telecom launch would be Foster Romanus, Sarkodie Acheampong, Gasmilla, Jupiter, Obibini and Echo Charles among others.

The show is sponsored by DJ Energy Drinks, Afro Star TV, YFM, Chapters Couture and Gold Coast Clothing.
