Some Kumawood producers planned to destroy my career – Agya Koo

Kumawood actor, Alex Kofi Adu popularly known as Agya Koo has disclosed that some producers in the movie industry planned to destroy his career.

According to him, he was urged to go naked for a scene in the all-popular Okomfo Anokye movie in Kumasi, an offer he refused due to his campaign against pornographic scens in movies.

The actor, who believes he is the topmost brand in Kumawood claimed that some producers planned to bring him down after he turned down that offer.

“Some people planned to bring my brand down. It was some producers and crew members who sat down to do that. They warned other producers to for go featuring me in movies otherwise they would not market it,” he revealed.

He said that he refused to act nude because the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II had at the time issued a stern warning to producers to limit the pornographic scenes in local movies.

Agya Koo, therefore, couldn’t fathom why those faceless producers and crew members would plan such ‘evil’ against him.

“People planned against me. They were mostly crew members and producers in the industry. They claimed they will never market my movies. People planned. I was Okomfo Anokye and was supposed to bath in a river. I was supposed to go naked for the scene but I rejected because the movie was going to educate people so I didn’t want to do that. I told them it was not professional. Besides Otumfuo Osei Tutu II had already told me to help stop the act. I had been keen against pornography in the industry. Why would people hate me for that?”, he quizzed.
