Well, It’s now certified that the Ghana vs. Nigeria beef will never end – and it’s not the Jollof Rice compliment – the battle is back in sports and this time Boxing.
It’s no longer news that World Champion, Anthony Joshua – proud of his Nigerian roots – is in the cynosure of the sport and of course making lots of money, but he’s also attracting all sorts of attention from major names and some ‘dramatist’.
What may come as a rude shock is the mention of a name familiar with skin whitening than actual slugfest or throwing punches in bunches.
Ghana‘s Braimah Kamoko a.k.a “Bukom Banku” is the latest voice crying from yonder, wanting a shot at not just the title, but to also to “beat” Olufemi Olaseni “hands down”.
Bukom Banku is a Heavyweight boxer with a rather impressive record of 29-0, winning 22 by knockouts per boxrec.
“Braimah first rose to prominence by winning a bronze medal in the Heavyweight 1999 All-Africa Games organized in Johannesburg,” according to his Wikipedia page.
The 37-year-old was quoted on Ghana media outlet Joy Fm recently, where he boldly favors himself to do what 19 – in his own words – “top guys in his division” have tried but failed to achieve.

Wladimir Klitschko was the latest victim, and though as widely agreed, Joshua showed major flaws, but Bukom Banku insists that, “I would love to fight Joshua, am serious about it and will beat him if we fight.”
He said about Klitschko, “he cannot stand me so don’t want to fight him”.

Bukom Banku is a joke. Someone that won’t even go the distance with Samuel Peter.

Well at this point, the only thing anybody can do, whilst we wait for Joshua‘s response is to hit the play button on that popular Fela Kuti record…
‘When trouble sleep, Yanga go wake am’… by the way, that tune is also popular in Ghana.
