Ghanaian satirist Kwaku Sintim-Misa (KSM) has refuted suggestions that Nigerian comedians are better than their Ghanaian counterparts.
Asked in an interview on Class 91.3FM’s Executive Breakfast Show by host Benjamin Akakpo whether Ghanaians can match up to their colleagues from Nigeria, KSM answered in the affirmative.
“Oh! Yes, definitely. I say that without a doubt,” he noted.
He explained: “If I put up DKB, Lekzy, I am sorry if I haven’t mentioned some of the other names, but I know about Foster, too. If we put them together and really have them prepare for a ‘Ghana Meets Naija’, they will do so well”.
He criticised Ghanaians “for being hard on our comedians”. In his view, “We are extra hard on them and sometimes it discourages them”.
For him, he “does not find [Nigerians] funnier than Ghanaian comedians. I don’t”.
