DKB Defends Juliet Ibrahim's Halloween Party

The first ever Halloween celebration in Ghana came off last Friday November 2, 2012 at the Aphrodisiac Night Club in Accra. The event dubbed “Halloween Weekend with the Stars” was put together by Juliet Ibrahim Foundation Initiative headed by ace actress Juliet Ibrahim and Project Smiles headed by C.E.O of Aphrodisiac Confidence.

Since news broke about the event, people have questioned the reason for staging such an event in Ghana when the ‘Halloween’ day is synonymous to the western world and the average Ghanaian is oblivious to what it is all about. Yesterday, Juliet Ibrahim took to her facebook to explain why she decided to host such an event, attributing it to a mere ‘costume’ party.

The explanation still did not sit well with most Ghanaians but DKB, Ghana’s celebrity representative at the Big Brother StarGame reality TV show has thrown his weight behind the actress questioning why the backlash on the Ghanaian actress? In a simple and yet concise tweet, DKB asked those criticizing a halloween party in Ghana to reflect on why they observe other predominately western influenced occasions such as valentine’s day or father Christmas.
Does DKB have a point? Does celebrating Valentine vindicate Juliet Ibrahim? Leave your comments below….
