Agya Koo’s fall affected me
Boss of Miracle Films, a movie production company based in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, Rev. Samuel Kwesi Nyamekye says the fall of actor Adu Kofi, popularly known as Agya Koo, in the movie industry affected him more than any other movie producer in Ghana.
Speaking in a live studio interview with Christian Agyei Frimpong, the host of Anigye Mmre on Accra-based Onua 95.1 FM, Rev Samuel Nyamekye said he was the one who featured Agya Koo in mainstream movie.
He also said he was the only movie producer who made lots of sales anytime he featured Agya Koo in movies.
But he pointed out: “Movie Producers in Ghana couldn’t manage Agya Koo’s attitude.
“The reason is that Agya Koo will go on location, he won’t spend more than a week on location and some directors and producers couldn’t compromise with this attitude and so they decided to look elsewhere for other options as in getting replacement.”
Samuel Nyamekye, who is one of the God fathers of the indigenous movies in Ghana, has produced and directed movies like Asoreba, Evangelist Lil Win, Agya Koo Bank Manager, Ensi Aga, among several others.
