Ghanaian comedian, DKB, in the news again for some pictures he released that were alleged to be a style theft from the late comedian, Bob Okala.
The picture showed him costumed in slap-stick type style which is widely attributed to concert party performers.
When reached for his comments, DKB had this to say,“First of all I would like to put across that I in no way stole from the late legendary Bob Okala. The pictures you saw are part of visual concept for my one man show called Point of view, coming up at the National theatre on Saturday July 9”.
He further added, “I find it offensive if you describe it as stealing. Anyway, can’t I honor our very own Bob Okala by way of his dressing? Did I pose with the picture that I was Okala and therefore I should be recognized as such? These are some of the reasons why people are passive when it comes to paying homage lest you are called names. I will entreat everyone to make their way to my Point of view show come July 9, so that they get to know my point of view about Ghanaian retrogressive behaviours.”
So per his explanation, this is not an attempt to copy the late Bob Okala’s style, but rather a visual concept for his upcoming one man show scheduled for July 9.
