Popular Ghanaian boxer, Braimah Kamoko, alias Bukom Banku says the response of Ghanaians to his ‘fake death’ news is clear evidence that Ghanaians love him.
“I wanted to see whether every Ghanaian likes me so I told my friends to tell Ghanaians that I had a serious accident and I have died,’’ he said.
Bukom Banku was the centre story in Bukom on Friday after news broke that the popular man had died in a car accident on the Suhum road.
But speaking to journalists later after the hoax the ‘comedian boxer’ said the rumour was just meant to test and validate his fan base in the country.
“When they told Ghanaians that I was dead, everyone was crying so now I know that everybody likes me very much,” he happily stated.
Banku happily touted that “Ghanaians love me very much…this shows that I am a big man in the nation.”
The boxer however, added that with the love that Ghanaians have him; he will also change any behaviour which is displeasing to them.
He also dismissed suggestions that he should render an apology to citizens. “There is no need for me to apologize. I just wanted to see how people will rush to verify the truth about my death.”
“I won’t die now. How can a 36-year-old man die? If something happens to me in the future, Ghanaians will believe me,” he opined.
Hundreds of fans of the boxer rushed to his house upon hearing the news only to be told it was a hoax.
