'I can't endorse Bob Okala as the king of comedy'

Prince Yawson Prince Yawson

Veteran actor Prince Yawson popularly known on screen as Waakye now Baba has told Dr. Who host of hot and classic showbiz review on Hot FM that, though comedian Bishop Bob Okolla is good, he can't endorse him as the king of comedy in Ghana.

"When we say comedy we are not talking about using verbally abusive words in your comedies. If Bob Okala says he is the king of comedy what should we call Super OD?", Waakye noted with a question.

He answered himself by saying,"I quite remember during the late General Acheampong's era, he was having a speech at the independence square, during his speech. Immediately the crowd saw Super OD, they started screaming and chanted his name... super OD...the soldiers on guard pleaded with the crowd in order to shift their attention back on Acheampong. So can Okalla be the king of Ghana comedy?

Waakye was responding to claims by ace comedian Bob Okalla as being the king of Ghana comedy.

Waakye who is now known as Baba on the Chorkor Trotro series on TV3 advised current comedians and actors to depict our rich Ghanaian culture in their acts.
