DKB debunks reports of stealing Bob Okala's style

Ghana's most influential comedian, Derrick Kobina Bonney popularly known as DKB, has been in the news again for allegedly stealing the style of late Bob Oklala. This followed the release of some pictures of DKB showing him in slap-stick type style widely attributed to the late Concert Party performer.

DKB has however denied the report. This is what he said: “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 honour 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," he said.
