Comedian DKB, known professionally as Derrick Kwabena Bonney, has responded angrily to claims that he did not consult the management of actress Akuapem Poloo, born Rosemond Brown before taking donations on her behalf.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, he lashed out and questioned Poloo's manager if he is a real one because of his actions and inactions.
Early this week, the comedian put out a message soliciting funds for the actress. Following that, Poloo's manager stated in an interview with TV3 that DKB did not inform them before making that decision.
"How do you manage someone and you don't even her phone number. You don't even know the last two, three numbers. Does that make you a manager?" DKB clapped back in a self-recorded video.
The management of Poloo on Monday distanced itself from donations being received by comedian DKB on behalf of the actress.
In a video seen by YEN.com.gh on TV3's official page on Twitter, the manager complained that DKB did not inform them before going ahead to spearhead the collection of funds for Poloo.
According to him, Brown has a management, and whatever help anyone wants to give should come to the management and not through an individual.
Asked if he would term DKB’s action as fraud, the manager said he would not call it fraud. However, he is not pleased that such a thing would go on when Poloo’s management is capable of doing so.

In other news about Poloo, Andrew Kudzo Vortia, the lawyer for the embattled actress has said her seven-year-old son, Chief, is currently living with him in one of his homes.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on myjoyonline, Lawyer Andrew Kudzo Vortia revealed that he offered to take care of the boy while his mother serves her 90-day prison sentence.
He went on to explain that he believes he has better facilities to take care of the young boy while his mother served her time behind bars.
When asked if the seven-year-old knew his mother had been jailed, Lawyer Andrew Kudzo Vortia said Chief was not aware. He added that he has been trying his best to shield Chief from finding out what actually is going on and has rather told him that his mother is working on a movie project.
Lawyer Vortia disclosed that they have explained to the young boy that his mother is shooting a movie and that she will return after she is done.
“I have told him mummy is going to do some acting work. I have created an impression that what is happening is part of the role that she is playing. So the son thinks the mother is acting,” he added.
