Isaac Monney, affectionately called Kofi Monney, the skits climber who recently fell from his skits in a video that went viral on social media over the weekend, has assured the people of Ghana that he will continue entertaining them despite his accident.
“Oh I’m alive by the grace of God and am not perturbed at all because I live my life with free mind, I dont plan evil for anyone…….yes I’m not perturbed, I will continue to entertain the people of Ghana,” he told Ahomka FM’s Kofi Owusu on Wednesday in an interview monitored by ghananewsonline.com.gh.
Kofi Monney, 29, was with the crowd who were in procession to the Cape Coast Jubilee park for the Fetu afahye grand durbar on Saturday walking on his 10 feet skits (known in the fante dialect as sakribudu).
suddenly he fell in the midst of the onlookers who were initially enjoying his skillful dance and acrobatics.
Many have attributed the fall to spiritual issues but he, (Kofi Monney), this morning reffuted that and said it was a gentleman who was among the crowd who touched his left bamboo which made him lose control leading to his fall.
He revealed that he had practiced the skits walking for about 13 years,
“I started this when I was 16 years and I’m 29 now..I do it for fun and for free, and it is not only Cape Coast here that I perform; I go to many places like Koforidua, Kumasi and Takoradi…and in fact i haven’t experienced such disaster before, though I consider this to be one of the working hazards and I thank God for that”.
He added that he had no money with him so he could not visit hospital after the disaster until yesterday (Tuesday) that a friend of his dashed him some amount which he took to hospital.
“As I speak now, I feel some pains in me specifically my ankle…….I need to go to hospital but I dont have money……it was a friend of mine who gave me something yesterday to go to hospital so am in the house….though I thank God for my life,” Monney bemoaned.
Juju in skits?
When asked whether it is true that they go for spiritual protection (juju), he admitted and said, “oh yes, there is juju….many people use juju but for me, no! I do it with free mind without juju because I’m a Cape Coast guy……why should I go for juju for this?,” he queried.
He then appealed to the well-meaning Ghanaians who would love to help him with money to seek medical care to go to his aid. “Let me please use your medium to appeal to Ghanaians to come to my aid to seek medical care because I still feel some pains,” Monney appealed.
