The Konxept Worae team, widely credited with spearheading modern Ghanaian pranking, will be on Accra- based Metro TV tonight, discussing their experiences as a collective of young pranksters.
Konxept Worae has over the years, grown into wide popularity, especially on social media for their hilarious pranks and skits, which are also used as fillers on TV3.
Team leader Joseph Owusu- Worae submits to ENEWSGH some of what viewers should expect tonight: “The discussion went beyond pranks. We shared our dreams and aspirations as a group of young guys in content business. We also spoke about our achievements, the risks/dangers that it comes with, as well as our political humour videos”.
Formed in 2013, the Konxept Worae team now consists eight core members, and is followed by thousands online. They attribute their rapid success to their versatility and goal to be different; “We represent pranks, but you can’t beat us to it when it comes to creating political humor, satires among others”.
The team, who have already garnered high-profile endorsement from such personalities as singer Amakye Dede, MUSIGA president Obour, Appietus, Okyeame Kwame, Sammy Flex among others, express what honour being on the show is and paying homage to KSM for being a trailblazer himself, but are also firm that it takes something special to get on the platform: “you need to be exceptionally good to be on that platform, so we consider ourselves very special. KSM himself started this prank thing and to recognize us makes us see him as selfless, humble and a genius”.
The team is keen on redefining entertainment in the country, and reveal that they’re working toward a TV show which will start airing in about twelve months: “We are here to provide solid entertainment by adding a new phase to entertainment in Ghana. The bigger agenda/dream is to have a TV show that brings the best of locally produced prank content to Ghanaians. This is because, we know Ghanaians do love pranks. We could tell by productions we shot on the streets of Accra, Kumasi, Techiman, and Cape Coast. Basically we want to go beyond the conventional entertainment that we are used to ; i.e music, plays, movies, fashion and things like that.”
KSM’s Thank God It’s Friday (TGIF) show airs Fridays between 9 and 10 pm and is repeated on Sundays between 1 and 2pm.
