Ghanaian comedian, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, popularly known as Funny Face, has disclosed that the police beat the depression out of him.
Recall that in 2021, Funny Face made headlines for the wrong reasons. Stories of his arrest, trial in court, and admission to the psychiatric hospital went viral causing a lot of people to talk.
In 2021, the police picked Funny Face up from the studios of Kofi TV after an interview for threatening to kill the mother of his children. This was when the baby mama of Funny Face refused him to see his children over his abusive attitude.
Funny Face was then taken to court but was later sent to a psychiatric hospital after the courts realized he was suffering from a mental disorder called depression.
After he was discharged, Funny Face caused another chaos in Kasoa after he reportedly fire gunshots at Kasoa over a fight. He was detained and transferred to the psychiatric hospital.
In an interview on the KSM show, Funny Face revealed that the police beat his depression out.
“Ghana Police! They are the best when it comes to beating depression out of you,” he told host, Kwaku Sintim-Misa.
Funny Face also jokingly revealed that he had given the IGP a new name because of his efforts.
“Shout out to IGP Dampare. I’ve renamed him, if you are mad, it will clear,” he said in Twi.
