The founder of one of the biggest comedy platforms in Nigeria, Night of Thousand Laughs and Music Opa Williams has honoured Ghana`s very own king of satire KSM and according to KSM this is the first ever award he has received in his life as a comedian. He received the honours at the Accra International Conference in December 2018.
Yes, i know the lead of this story will come as a shocker to every one who knows the story of Ghana`s showbiz industry and the contributions of Kwaku Sintim Misah aka KSM of Sapphire Entertainment. Since his return to Ghana some years ago, KSM has spent his entire life in the different facets of the creative arts industry in Ghana. Mention can be made from radio, television, movies, stage production and comedy which has been his biggest trade mark so far. History about Ghana`s creative arts cannot be written without the name KSM so for him to inform the general public that was his ever award in his career in Ghana comes as a great shock to his followers.
According to Opa Williams who is introducing his brand of the Night of Thousand Laughs and Music to Ghana, people like KSM should not be toyed with in Ghana at all because his influence transcends the borders of Ghana therefore, if he wants to do anything in Ghana in the area of comedy, his first approach will be to honour KSM before any other thing. This honour was bestowed on KSM in Ghana on 1st December 2018 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
In his acceptance speech, KSM thanked Opa Williams and his team from Nigeria where he made the revelation that it was his first ever award in his life given to him by a foreigner. “A part of me tells me i deserve this award and the other part is saying otherwise but there comes a time some people will recognize” he added. He encouraged them to do more of such events in Ghana without looking at the fact that their first event did not record huge numbers. Should the fact that KSM has not been honored by his country men serve as a cautionary note to the young comedians in Ghana who are also working hard to market Ghana to the outside world in the corridors of comedy? Think about it.
