Pray for your celebrities – DKB urges Ghanaians
Popular Ghanaian comedian DKB, also known as Derick Kobina Bonney, has urged people on social media to offer prayers for their favourite celebrities.
Following the recent accident on Sunday, December 10, 2023, rapper Ayibge Edem from Ghana is making this appeal. The incident occurred following the musician’s appearance on United Television on Saturday, December 9, according to a press release signed by the ‘Over Again’ hitmaker’s management. The accident happened “where a ‘naked’ woman crossed his path out of nowhere” on the George Walker Bush Highway, according to the statement.

It went on to say, “Edem’s car turned over after the collision, but the artist is fine and is currently following the police department’s due process procedures while the matter is still being looked into.
Nonetheless, DKB emphasised the value of praying for people in the public eye because they frequently face grave danger while performing their duties in a heartfelt video message to Ghanaians that was shared on his official Instagram page.
In addition, the comedian talked about some of his worst experiences, including several near-death incidents.
“We renowned individuals—that is, celebrities—observe things. Two crazy people crossed my path twice when I was returning home from shows on the Achimota-Kumasi highway. One was a man, and the other was a woman. You are never going to know where they originated. There was just God.
“I once came upon kitchen stools while flying over. We do not always talk about it. I had recently built kitchen stools, and if I drove over them, well, you can imagine what would happen. As a result, we perceive things as though they were real. Please pray for us, “he said.
A large number of “showbiz players,” particularly radio and TV show hosts, were cautioned by DKB not to bring up Edem’s accident on air because it is a delicate topic involving fatalities.
“I really beg of you Ghanaian showbiz players; please give Edem a break. Since this is such a tragic issue, I feel that talking about it on the radio will be insensitive. Please give him some grace; you can only imagine how he is feeling right now,” he continued.
