Veteran Ghanaian movie actor, Akwesi Boadi aka Akrobeto has disclosed that when Kumawood movie industry was at its peak, he was advised not to act alongside Agya Koo.
Akrobeto revealed that he was told to reject scripts that will enable him work with Agya Koo—because working with he will hamper his growth.
According to an interview he granted to 1Ghana monitored by Nanaoseiike.com, he was told by Mr. Nyamrkye that Agya Koo was the fans favourite then—acting alongside him will only throw more spotlight on him [Agya Koo] more than any other actor irresective of the role you play and the efforts you put in.
He further stated that it was the advise Samuel Nyamekye of Miracle Films Production gave him was what pushed him to the very highest level he is today.
Mr. Nyamekye genuinely advised me not to go on set with Agya Koo because he was already on top and anyone who acts alongside him, will not shine. Again, he made me reject any role which had Agya Koo inside not because he hated him, but he wanted to give me a platform to gain grounds in the country.
