Derick Kobina Bonney was born in the capital city of Ghana- Accra on of 3rd september in the 80s at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital to Ms.Caroline Mensah (mother) and Harry Jerry Bonney (Father) who both hail from the Ga-Adangme tribe of the eastern part of Ghana.
The story of DKB begins in Legon, in 2005, when he tried saving a show from flopping. His addiction to comedy started in the first year when he witnessed a ”joking competition”. The audience was not convinced about the winner, whether he was good enough. DKB then decided to challenge the winner only to come up as better than the winner himself. Even though that didn't earn him the winner's prize, he realized instantly that he had a thing for comedy.
From that initial career propelling performance, DKB has grown gradually into a force in Ghanaian comedy. His exploits at the Citizen Kofi Comedy show got him a well deserved endorsement from Ghana's all time King of Comedy, Kwaku Sintim Misa (KSM), and the former President of Ghana and a former AU Chairman, H.E. John Agyekum Kuffour.
