One of Ghana’s most elaborate April fools prank must be the marriage proposal which involved Comedian DKB and TV and Radio Personality AJ Sarpong which set social media on fire and sent many tongues wagging on the possibility of a secret 4 year relationship between the two.
The proposal which was staged Live on GhOne’s morning show, Gh Today, had many people believing that the two media personalities were indeed heading towards the alter, while a few realizing the date being April 1st meant it could be a prank and voiced those opinions.
Indeed it turned out to be as some suspected, an elaborate prank for April fool’s day when DKB and AJ came out to tell their fans that indeed they were nothing but good friends and there was no impending nuptials later in the day, after keeping the façade going for most part of the day.
AJ speaking on the Prank said she didn’t expect anyone to believe the Prank when she and the team at GHOne thought of it. “I initially thought it was not going to work, I was really skeptical anyone will believe a comedian proposing on April fool’s day especially when no one has heard of any such relationship before.” She said.
“I actually considered calling it off in the morning but decided to go through with it anyways, and it turned out that more people believed it was true than doubted it. In fact I had calls from family members and friends wanting to confirm the story and my phone didn’t stop ringing all day in fact” She added.
“The hardest thing was not telling the truth to friends to keep the prank going, and I think the reason why I had people believing it the most is that I am usually very truthful and honest so this lead to a lot more people accepting it because I confirmed it” she continued.
