Known to have demonstrated against actors who go naked in movies in May, 2010, Agya Koo reiterated his stance never to expose his genitals or buttocks on set.
Speaking in an interview with Okay FM, Agya Koo stated that “when it got to the part where I had to expose my genitals, I told the production team that I won’t play that role. I made it clear to them that I had led a demonstration against people who have acted nude so I simply cannot do it…it became a debate between I and the team but I told them I won’t do it.
What they did was that they paid monies to one guy by name Philip and he played that role. They edited that part using my face to my waist and added his buttocks to legs to look like me”.
