Actor cum comedian Kofi Adu, known in showbiz circles as Agya Koo has attributed the current state of the Kumawood movie industry to his exclusion and sideline from the industry.
Speaking on Onua FM’s entertainment talk show ‘Anigye Mmre’, Agya Koo told host Christian Agyei Frimpong that, he and some actors toiled to promote the movie industry.
According to him, some people in the industry connived to sabotage him.
“After I was sidelined, they forgot I had a huge following, and I took away my huge followers. They brought in new people to replace me, but they forgot Agya Koo’s followers are bigger than the actors that they replaced me with,” Agya Koo said.
Speaking in the Akan dialect, he added, “If they want to revive the movie industry, they should go back to the drawing board because my exclusion has caused the decline of Kumawood movies”.
A delegation from the Kumawood movie industry led by Rev. Samuel Nyamekye, Chief Executive Officer of Miracle Films, recently consulted the head pastor of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim in Kumasi to help them revive the movie industry spiritually.
Reacting to the decision of the industry players to seek spiritual help, Agya Koo was emphatic that the current state of Ghanaian movies especially the ones produced in Kumasi (Kumawood) has no spiritual connotation but due to his exclusion from the movie industry.
