“Making a song or appearing in a film does not make you a celebrity”- COP kofi Boakye respond to lil win and reggie rockstone

Ghanaians have been schooled by the Commissioner of Police, Kofi Boakye, on what it means to be referred to as a celebrity and the types of persons who qualify to be labeled such.

According to him, many people in Ghana who are referred to as celebrities do not meet the criteria or deserve to be referred to as such.

Following the IGP’s meeting with a select group of entertainers, musicians, and other so-called celebrities, COP Kofi Boakye has stated that persons who believe they are celebrities must relinquish their sense of entitlement.


He argued that Ghanaians are perplexed as to why someone who appears in a film, directs a film, or appears on television should be referred to as a celebrity.

According to Kofi Boakye, a celebrity is someone who uses his or her position of influence and authority to make a positive difference in the world.

So, what exactly 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”
