I faked my death to know if Ghanaians love me – Bukom Banku

By on

bukom-bankuControversial Ghanaian boxer, Braimah Kamoko, alias Bukom Banku says he now has enough evidence to prove the love of Ghanaians for him after it emerged he deliberately faked his own death to test his popularity. News broke last Friday that the popular boxer had been killed in a vehicle accident on the Suhum road. Fans of the boxer rushed to his house upon hearing the news only to be told it was a hoax. Speaking to journalists after the incident, an exited Bukom Banku said the rumour was just meant to test his fan base in the country. “I wanted to see whether every Ghanaian likes me so I told my friends to tell Ghanaians that I had a serious accident and I have died,” he narrated.

“When they told Ghanaians that I was dead, everyone was crying so now I know that everybody likes me very much,” he happily added.

He proudly touted that “Ghanaians love me very much…this shows that I am a big man in the nation.”

Bukom Banku promised Ghanaians that with the love that has been shown to him; he will work hard to change any behaviour which is displeasing to Ghanaians.

The boxer however dismissed suggestions that he should render an apology to citizens.

He said: “There is no need for me to apologize. I just wanted to see how people will rush to verify the truth about my death.”

He also argued that faking his death does not mean he will die any time soon saying, “I won’t die now. How can a 36-year-old man die? If something happens to me in the future, Ghanaians will believe me.”
