Glo Laffta Fest undoubtedly is the biggest comedy event in Nigeria as we speak, and it is a program which brings top rated African comedians to tour the country. “It wouldn’t be bad if there would be a Ghana edition to share the excitement.” Ghana king of comedy, Derrick Kobina Bonney, aka, DKB has told newsmen.
Without any scrap doubt, the rise of the Ghana comedy industry has been very impressive in these past few years; it has seen lots of vibrancy, patronage from the people who once upon a time doubted them. With this faith, DKB believes it is time, telecommunication giant GLO brings the ‘Laffta Fest’ to the shores of Ghana, because the comedians in the country have risen to the standard to walk on any international stage and crack ribs.
“We have very good comedians who have come of age and can rub shoulders with the Nigerian comedians. Myself as a comedian, I have performed on the same stage with American Comedian Aron Kader, Nigeria top gun Basketmouth, Uganda’s Salvador and I have hosted my very own one-man show dubbed “Point of view”. My other colleagues in the industry have also begun dominating the Night of Thousand Laughs and Music. The industry has become vibrant with at least 4 to 5 comedy shows in a month, where the comedians go and better their crafts. We have become top selling performers and I believe it would be fair if Glo brings their Laffta Fest here to give their customers a feel of the most talked about comedy tour in Nigeria.” He hammered.
