The 2018 Ghana Entertainment Awards event came off last Saturday, June 30, at the
Schomburg Centre in Harlem, New York. This was the second edition and just like the first one,
the event was nothing but pure master class. Many deserving winners were crowned with the
awards which they were nominated for. One of such outstanding winners is King of GhComedy
Derick Kobina Bonney, popularly known as DKB.
Just like last year's edition, DKB walked home with the top prize as the comedian of the
year. It was a keenly contested category as every comedian on that nominees list had proven
without doubt that they are world class performers in the comedy genre in entertainment, but it
is very unfortunate there has to be one winner and that winner turned out to be the King himself
Reaching out to the comedian for a few words, he said “It is the second year in a roll I
am winning this award. I am very happy that my hard work is paying off. I am also proud of the
growth comedy has seen in these past few years. I would also like to thank everyone who voted
for me especially my fan base #DKBrepublic"
Other winners on the night include Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Willis Beat, King
Promise, Wutah, Ebony, Joyce Blessing etc. The Ghana Entertainment Awards endeavor to
exhibit the rich arts and culture of Ghana-West Africa; it serves to further internationalize the
diversity of Ghanaian talents.
In addition, #Ghentawards provides public recognition and appreciation of artists,
industry professionals, and honorees that demonstrate excellence and significant
accomplishments in their entertainment fields such as DKB, the forerunner of comedy in Ghana.
