Ghana: VIP Attack Kwaw Kese

Over the years, Kwaw Kese has been known to thrill and entertain his fans with creative stagecraft and comic performances.

Last Saturday's Joy FM Nite with the Stars was no exception. Kwaw came on stage with a bevy of ladies whose 'attire' spelt MAD TIME - the entertainment label managed by Kwaw Kese.

In the spirit of creative 'competition' of the show which was dubbed 'Accra vs. Tema' and which pitted Kwaw Kese against VIP, Kwaw also brought on stage a banner with VIP written on it. Kwaw stood on this banner to depict that in Ghana's entertainment industry, he was a true VIP too.

For some unfortunate reason, VIP took this creative expression out of context and resorted to violence, with members of their entourage violently demanding that Kwaw go on stage to apologize for his act.

In order not to interrupt the event and also to ensure that sanity prevailed, Kwaw and his entourage left the premises of the Accra International Conference Centre Dome.

The acts of violence did not stop, however. Other musicians and fellow stars were also attacked at the Dome. The popular MC Commotion suffered violence just because he was a hype man for Kwaw Kese, and in the process lost his phone and money. Other personalities can testify to slaps and other unruly acts committed against them.
