“The fact that you appeared in a film or did a song does not make you a celebrity” – COP Kofi Boakye to so-called celebs

 

 

 

Commissioner of Police Kofi Boakye has educated Ghanaians on what it meant to be described as a celebrity and people who qualify to be called one.

According to him, many individuals who are called celebrities in Ghana do not qualify or deserve to be called one.

 

 

Speaking on the back of the IGP’s meeting with some selected entertainers, musicians and so-called celebrities, COP Kofi Boakye has said that the sense of entitlement by people who think they are celebrities must stop.

He maintained that Ghanaians are confused to think a person who appeared in a film, did a movie or appeared on tv should be described as a celebrity.

 

 

Kofi Boakye said a celebrity is someone who uses the influence and power he or she has for a positive impact.

So who is a celebrity?

COP Kofi Boakye answers that question by saying:

“Who is a Celebrity? What is the operational definition of the word celebrity? I think we should get that because I am confused. We are confused. Is it that when you appear in one film, or you do one song, you qualify to be called a celebrity or what? And because we are confused, we do not know what you want.”

“I want to say that the sense of entitlement by celebrities is becoming overwhelming. And I just don’t get it. Some of the things you do are disgusting truth be told…If you want privileges, what privileges do you want? That you could pull a weapon anytime and nothing would be done to you. That is not possible, we cannot do that”
