It looks like all is not well with the once budding friendship that existed between fashionable TV/ radio personality, Kwasi Kyei Darkwa (KKD) and his cousin/friend Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD).
A disappointed KKD speaking in an interview with Deloris Frimpong-Manso on the "The Delay Show" on Viasat 1 said KOD asked him not to reveal his name as part of the rape scandal that hit him in December 2014.
“KOD was there; he had knelt down begging me … and I want to make this public today that those whom he (KOD) mentioned their names, they should also come out to deny.”
The TV/Radio personality revealed how KOD had said he had been warned to stay away from him (KKD) because some people were working to tarnish his image. “Kwasi, two elderly men, told me that some people are plotting evil against you, so I (KOD) should distance myself and that if I don’t, they will include me.”
The ace broadcaster seemed to indicate that his relationship with KOD had gone sour when he used a song by highlife legend, Nana Ampadu to describe what he felt about KOD’s betrayal. He told the host of the show that the truth is only one and that he will not call her to demand that the interview is edited. “Why did KOD even beg me?” he asked.
Despite the new turn of events, KKD was present at the funeral of KOD’s dad and indicated that he is ready to support his friend and brother whenever need be, but he has also learnt a huge lesson from the incident.
“When his (KOD’s) father died, I went to the funeral because he is a family member; he is a son of an Adansi. Tradition demands that I can’t abandon or neglect him. As for the funeral, I’ll attend; if there’s any bad news, I’ll be there to support; but I’ve learnt to be careful about some people. Not him (KOD) per se, but humans,” KKD noted.
KKD was acquitted and discharge of rape charges after he was arrested on December 27th, 2014 following an incident with an acquaintance of his, Ewureffe at the African Regent Hotel. The AG’s Department failed to prosecute him because the victim was unwilling and her family were unwilling to testify in the case.
