Angry man pounces on Dr Likee

In a recent interview with Ekow Mankatah, a self-acclaimed Islam activist and philanthropist popularly known as Khalifa Faith made his case against Dr Likee.

According to him, some of Dr Likee's skits put the Islam religion in a bad light and could put him at risk.

He cited an uproar in Kumasi by Muslims and Rev Owusu Bempah's doom prophecy about the Chief Imam, which caused an uprising in 2019 while talking about his plans to chide Dr Likee.

According to him, the Islam religion was nothing to poke fun at despite his. He said in the interview on Pure FM that,

"There is a difference between Islam and tradition. You cannot play with Islam."
