The experienced Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of defunct Miracle Films, Evangelist Samuel Nyamekye whose immense contribution with Jackson K. Bentum took the Kumawood industry to the Ionosphere has stated emphatically that producers of the local movie industry never orchestrated the downfall of the popular Kumawood Actor Kofi Adu aka Agya Koo but he conjured his own downfall.
Samuel Nyamekye in an interview revealed;
“Ike, the issue is we (producers), directors and the actors had a meeting to discuss how to work effectively when Agya Koo is not in Ghana. Agya Koo was a very good actor and Ghanaians always buy movies which he has featured Agya Koo because without Agya Koo they won’t buy the movie
“Due to that, Agya Koo became popular even outside Ghana so sometimes Ghanaians in other countries will invite him for shows and movies. When he (Agya Koo) travels, Kumawood producers, directors and actors cannot work because we have to wait for Agya Koo to come
“We the producers decided to take a risk and the risk was to work without Agya Koo. That is when he is not in Ghana we can still work but when he is not in Ghana then we can’t work without him. So the meeting was to meet the actors to reduce their price so that we can use them to take the risk but not to sideline Agya Koo”.
