Born Alex Kofi Adu commonly known as Agya Koo in our Ghanaian movie industry on countless number of times has asserted that he’s peerless in the industry.
Not long ago, the argument among social media users was about the most popular actor in our contemporary times. While a number of Ghanaians tipped Agya Koo as second to none including Hon. Catherine Afeku, others were also hyping the likes of Majid Michel, John Dumelo and other glamorous actors in Ghana.
Fast forward, Rev. Samuel Nyamekye who doubles as the owner of Miracle Films in the sphere of Kumawood has stated categorically that Agya Koo is indeed peerless. To him, Agya Koo holds a record which no actor or actress has in the movie industry since its inception more than a decade ago.
“Agya Koo is more popular, let me tell you something, he holds a record which nobody in the industry has”. He told Tony Montana on Sika FM in Kumasi on the station’s program Flavor Zone.
He insists Agya Koo is the only one who has reigned in the Ghanaian movie industry for more than a decade.
“If we need an actor who has taken major lead roles in movies for a consistent 10-year period, then it’s Agya Koo and nobody else. Nobody comes near him, he is a legend”, he praised.
His comments were in reaction to earlier claims made by Minister for Tourism, Arts, and Culture, Catherine Ablema Afeku that the comedian and actor is more popular than John Dumelo which have been disputed.
“You can’t even compare Dumelo to Majid so how could someone do that by comparing him to Agya Koo” He asked.
When asked if he implied Majid and Dumelo are nowhere near Agya Koo, he responded in the affirmative. “I’m telling you the truth, Agya Koo was consistent for a decade.”
It’s obvious this argument will still continue as to who’s the most popular actor of our time. This is because, when it comes to such issues people judge based on their sentiment and perhaps their relationship with the personality under scrutiny.
