Ghanaian celebrity cries after betting N266k on Ghana's AFCON win kikiotolu

Ghanaian celebrity and comedian, DKB, cried bitterly after he lost N266k he used to bet on Ghana to win the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

Ghana got kicked out of the 2019 AFCON tournament after they lost out on penalties to Tunisia when the game ended 1-1 in regulation time.

Tunisia defeated Ghana 5-4 on penalties on Monday with Ferjani Sassi converting the decisive spot-kick to end a 54-year Africa Cup of Nations losing streak against the Black Stars.

After a 1-1 draw following extra time in Ismailia, Tunisia scored from all five penalties while Ghana substitute Caleb Ekusan had his attempt saved by Farouk Ben Mustapha, who came off the bench especially for the shootout.

Victory was sweet for Tunisia as they had lost six times to Ghana in the African football showcase from 1965 after drawing the first meeting between the nations two years earlier.

Losing on penalties ended a Ghana run of six consecutive top-four finishes in the Cup of Nations and puts the future of coach Kwesi Appiah in doubt.

Ghanaian comedian, DKB had so much confidence in Ghana wining the cup decided to bet 4000 cedis (which is over two hundred and sixty thousand Naira) with Dafabet with the hope of getting 30,000 cedis should Ghana win.

Unfortunately for the comedian, Ghana lost woefully and he has since been shedding tears.

Taking to his Instagram page, he shared a video of himself crying as he blamed himself for placing the bet, stating that he should have rather spent the money on something better.
