opportunity to thank ABL for really supporting comedy made in Ghana.

Castle Milk Stout has really supported all our tours and I wish the

media had given us same support," DKB, MC for the launch, said.

Tomorrow, Saturday, November 22, DKB and his Ecstacy Entertainment

team will launch the second edition of the tour at the Ghana

Technology University in Accra.

Among comedians to grace the Ghana Telecom launch would be Foster

Romanus, Sarkodie Acheampong, Gasmilla, Jupiter, Obibini and Echo

Charles among others.

The show is sponsored by DJ Energy Drinks, Afro Star TV, YFM, Chapters

Couture and Gold Coast Clothing.
