At the just ended City People Entertainment Awards, Ghanaian producer and director Kofi Asamoah swept two awards at the award ceremony inking his prowess when it comes to producing and directing movies that become overly successful in Ghana and in the diaspora.
Kofi Asamoah is the director and producer of the hit web comedy series “Adventures Of Kalybos” which shot Kalybos and Ahoufe Patri into fame. His hard work, dedication and perseverance at achieving greatness has finally been recognized in a Nigerian Award show and it’s just the beginning of greater things to happen.
I have been following Kofi Asamoah closely and sometimes I wonder where he gathers all of his energy and optimism from. Maybe because he is an old boy of Mfantsipim School…..LOL
“We don’t stop because we are tired,we only stop when it’s done” is his popular quote and that’s what has guided him right from the time he started. I have seen his other team members at Kofas Media share this same quote too and I have even fallen in love with it.
Kofi Asamoah produced and directed “Kalybos In China” which was premiered last year and ranked as the most successful movie in the year 2015. The movie was not only premiered in Accra but in about 7 regions in the country and more than 4 countries around the globe for Ghanaians in the diaspora. It was however sad, the 2015 Ghana Movie Awards snubbed the most successful movie and gave away all the awards to Beasts of No Nation for reasons best know to them.
The roguish snubbing of the most successful movie in the year did not however deter Kofi Asamoah from working harder. He brought us another rib-cracking comedy movie “Amakye & Dede” this year and anyone who was at the premiere of the movie would know I am not exaggerating. The numbers that turned up at the premiere was over whelming and never seen before in the history of Ghana Movies. It’s still the most successful movie in the year 2016 because no movie premiered so far has been able to break the record or even come close.
I am of the conviction it’s going to remain the Most Successful movie of the year till 2016 ends. This is a movie that received major turn outs at subsequent premieres in other regions in the country. There’s not a single movie that has been able to achieve that yet.
Kofi Asamoah’s success story with his two movies has left an indelible mark in the movie industry and it’s an indisputable fact that he truly deserved those two awards at the 2016 City People Entertainment Awards. He won Best Movie Director in Ghana and also his movie “Amakye & Dede” won Best Movie of the year.
So take an inspiration for the Movie director of the moment “We don’t stop because we are tired, we only stop when it’s done”
