Kwaku Sintim-Misa aka KSM has defended radio presenters, Lexis Bill, Jay Foley and MzGee who mocked teen actor, Abraham Attah for his speech delivered at the recently held Independent Spirit Awards when he walked on stage to receive Best actor award.
The veteran comedian in an interview with Christian Agyei Frimpong on Accra-based Onua FM opined that “it was a joke gone wrong”. To him, he sees nothing wrong with what the three radio presenters said about the actor so he finds it worrying to see Ghanaians toast them on social media.
“Honestly, with what I listened, I don’t think I can base on that to say the radio presenters hate the actor because what I’ve read on social media suggests that they hate the boy.
I think it is a joke gone wrong. Every joke is based on timing. There is noting you can joke about but everything is based on the timing that has made the joke gone wrong. This is the day the young chap has received an extremely important award so this is the time we all rally around him. Even if his oral presentation was wrong somewhere along the line, this is not the time for jokes on it.
All I will say is, it is a joke gone wrong but I won’t term them as haters because the boy’s delivery can go under any joke but the timing is what matters. I can jokingly comment about this some months after and we will all laugh.”
The satirist and show host agreed with movie producer Leila Djansi who has suggested that the ‘Beasts Of No Nation’ actor should be relocated to America because “his career cannot be sustained in Ghana”.
