Celebrated Ghanaian actor in the person of Agya Koo has stated categorically that people should desist from pointing fingers at Ghana’s able president Akufo Addo for the ailing state of Ghana Movie Industry.
Agya Koo, who has been campaigning for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for some years now, told DJ Roar in an interview on Kumasi-based Kessben FM that Akufo Addo has no hand in the collapse of the movie industry.
To Agya Koo’s best knowledge and experience in the game, movie producers and directors are the prime cause of the degenerative state of the one-time vibrant movie industry especially Kumawood Films.
Agya Koo stressed that their (movie producers and directors) decision to blacklist him contributed to the collapse of the industry, cēterīs paribus.
To consolidate his argument with more valid points, the celebrated actor recalled how people rushed to buy his movies some years ago. Agya Koo bemoaned the story has not been the same after he was sidelined.
He urged the filmmakers to correct their mistakes and think about how to revamp the industry. Agya Koo also revealed that some of the industry players are engaged in some spiritual activities which are not helping.
