KKD Worried About Negativity In Ghanaians
Renowned Broadcaster and Communication Executive – Kwasi Kyei Darkwa popularly known as KKD has slammed some Ghanaians for always trying to pull each other down instead of supporting each other.
KKD who was commenting on the reactions of some Ghanaians on social media after nominees for the BET AWARDS 2017 International Act- Africa, was announced yesterday Monday May 15, seems heartbroken because most of the comments from Ghanaians are negative whiles Nigerians are rather supporting their own.
this is the post on social media KKD wrote:
“I have read with much joy, and also disappointment, the tweets and posts following the announcement of nominees for the BET AWARDS 2017 International Act- Africa. On this subject, I speak only for myself, The Finest Productions and for the advancement of Arts, Culture and Tourism in Ghana, not for BET nor any artiste nor enterprise.
The negativity expressed in Ghanaian circles is only surpassed by the positivity and goodwill of our Nigerian counterparts. Whilst some Ghanaian supporters and punters are attacking the nominated and the as yet unnominated, others elsewhere are congratulating and rooting for their compatriot.
The difference is so telling: love vrs hate, class vrs crass. Wiz Kid Dayo from Nigeria tweeted in support of fellow nominee Mr Eazi: “Proud of this guy @mreazi ! Bring it home!! ⚡️⚡️⚡️ 16 hours ago – View on Twitter whilst in Ghana, Willi Roy posted on his Facebook page: “When Ghanians take pride in a backstage award then we are in deep mess” and “Shatta Wale is about making real money not backstage awards BETSHAM No Willi, you didn’t have to go there. Be a friend, like in your beautiful song, not a fiend, that’s so wrong. I don’t think the very popular and entertaining Ghanaian musician Shatta Wale has requested any publicist to bring his name into the fray.
He can do it himself if he chooses to. He is a commercially successful artiste who deserves his applause and awards, many yet to come. For now, congratulations to Stone Buoy, the only Ghanaian nominee this year. I entreat all who love African Music to support the artistes by paying for their music and performances, sponsoring their shows and paying them well for their services in brand campaigns so they can continue to bring us entertainment and upliftment. As for those who dislike any product, you have the power to channel your energies into designing and creating your substitute. Don’t merely sit and vent; think and invent. And if you can’t build, don’t destroy what others have. “If you can’t originate You may temporarily imitate But please don’t denigrate Rather learn to create” –HRB KKD
