Popular Ghanaian actor Kofi Adu a.k.a. Agya Koo has stated in an interview that life became financially tough for him when movie producers began sidelining him.
According to the veteran, he last acted a movie seven years ago which he never saw coming. As a result, his finances was really affected.
He said “I went through some financial challenges when I was sidelined because it was unexpected. My wife is currently living outside the country and she supported me through those hard times. I wasn’t able to offer help to people I used to but I was able to go through”.
Agya Koo also stated that he is very aware of some people who were seriously pulling the strings to make sure he doesn’t return to movie making. According to him, he will address them at the appropriate time.
Agya Koo burst into the movie scene when he was discovered on a Ghanaian comedy show on GTV at the National Theater in Accra where he worked as a comedian. He has since starred in over 90 movies.
