Ace broadcaster, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah, popularly known as KKD has, in a recent interview with Fiifi Prat on Kingdom FM, lashed out at colleague media personalities for not rallying their enormous support behind him when he was alledged to have raped a 19-year-old Ewuraffe Orleans Thompson at a hotel washroom. Though he denied the charge of rape, maintaining his sexual encounter with the teenager was with her consent, the ace broadcaster feels the media could have done more to exonerate his brand.

He was arrested on 27 December 2014 following a report accusing him of raping a 19-year-old woman in the bathroom of the African Regent Hotel in Accra, Ghana. He was formally charged with rape. On 12 January 2015, the 19-year-old alleged victim expressed her disinterest in pursuing the case. She consequently communicated her decision to the police and made copies of letters available to the Director of Prosecutions, the Registrar of the High Court and the Chief Justice.

KKD was freed and the rape charge against him was dropped on 22 April 2015 after the Attorney General entered a nolle prosequi for the case.
