DKB calls some Ghanaian celebrities ‘waste’

When Ghanaian celebrities step out to attend events, most of them are usually seen in clothes made by foreign designers. Few of these celebrities proudly wear Ghanaian made goods and acknowledge the designers for their good works on red carpets.

Events like Ghana Music Awards, 4syte Music Video Awards, Movie Premieres, BASS Awards and all the big concerts held in the country are heavily attended by our stars in expensive designer clothes from outside.

On most of our red carpet at events, celebrity’s clothes, shoes, handbags, belts and other glossaries are mostly foreign designer made.

Derick Kobina Bonney popularly known as DKB has described Ghanaian celebrities who attend events in foreign designer clothes and acknowledge the manufactures of the costume on red carpet as ‘waste people.’

DKB made this statement last Saturday January 18 at the nominees’ announcement party of the 2014 Ghana DJ Awards, the event scheduled for February 22 this year. He said it is sad to see these people promoting foreign goods but complain of Ghanaians not supporting their stars in their field of work.

When everybody thought it was one of his usual jokes he was sharing on the night, the ‘Boys Boys’ TV host said he is serious about it and it’s different from his witticisms for the night.

“Some Ghanaian celebrities are waste, I am serious. It’s not a joke. Some of them buy clothes from abroad and pay huge sums of money for it and advertise it for free when they get on red carpet without earning anything from it.”

He continued that foreign celebrities who are seen in designer attires on red carpets wear them for free but don’t purchase them with their money.

“The Hollywood celebrities some of us are copying wear designer clothes for free and some are even contracted for their services but my own colleagues will buy the expensive foreign goods and promote them for free which to me doesn’t augur well for our industry’

He advised victims of his problem to use local goods to boost the producers of the local fabrics.

“Let’s help our local people so that they will also help us in our job. How may Ghanaians can even buy those foreign goods?”
