“ #SOTNGhana Saying all this good works but we don’t see it. I wonder the nation he is addressing, sark nation? Bhim nation? Or carnation?”

This tweet which had over 119 retweets was taken the wrong way by some Ghanaians. DKB stated in an interview with on Friday morning that the tweet was meant to put smiles on the face of his twitter followers but not to attack the President as it has been interpreted wrongly.

“I knew certainly that the president was addressing Ghana as a nation as a comedian,  I knew I was having fun on twitter. I felt to tweet something that was funny and they were in no way to fight the president because I’m not a political figure and I have nothing to do with politics.

He further apologized to those who are offended by his tweet.

“Anybody offended by the story should not take it serious because that is not what I intended to do. I was in one corner enjoying my tweets on a micro-blogging site twitter and it was taken as a political tool.”

DKB gave a positive answer when asked if he has received threats for the tweet.
