Famous Ghanaian actor Akwasi Boadi, better known as Akrobeto, has shed light on the circumstances behind the advice he received not to work on any projects with legendary Ghanaian actor Kofi Adu, also known as Agya Koo.

Akrobeto claims that well-known Kumawood producer Kwasi Nyamekye, commonly known as Miracle, advised him to cease appearing in movies with Agya Koo.

The well-known producer, he said, had made him aware of Agya Koo’s importance to the movie industry and his capacity to subtly outperform every actor.

This, the producer believed, would prevent Akrobeto from being recognized for his talents should he star in a movie with Agya Koo.

“I was advised against acting with Agya Koo because of his influence and might in the movie industry. I would not hide the name of the advisor. He is our very own Miracle, Kwasi Nyamekye. He acknowledged my talent and told me that I would not be recognized for my talent if I continue acting with Agya Koo because he would always outshine me. I saw wisdom in his counsel and decided to obey. So, he made sure we were not in the same movie till movie lovers began to accept me,” Akrobeto explained in an exclusive interview on Peace FM.

The host of the “Real News” show appreciated Agya Koo’s assistance to his acting career and recalled instances in which he had quietly shown his appreciation for that part in his achievement.

He said, “No one can undermine the might and contribution of Agya Koo to the development of the Ghana movie industry, and I always praise him for paving the way for us. When I bought my first car, a KIA Sportage, I drove to his house to show him my new car and express my gratitude to him. Same happened when I bought my Venza.”

Akrobeto said that he has kept silent about the subject and normally tries to avoid interviews because he worries that reporters would misinterpret and misrepresent what he says.

“I have been silent on this issue and I have tried to dodge journalists and interviews because of what journalists can do to your words.”
