Legendary actor Akwasi Boadi aka Akrobeto has disclosed that he was spoken to by one respectable movie industry personality on how to get along with Agya Koo years ago.
Akrobeto who is currently the presenter of Real News on UTV mentioned this advice was given to him because at that time Agya Koo was the most sought after actor and if he had acted on the same movie set with him, Akrobeto won’t become a household name as he is today.
The legendary actor who is one of the most respected personalities in Kumawood today told 1Ghana in a rare interview that this single piece of advice has paid off well for him as we speak today.
Akrobeto went on to reveal that this advise which was freely dished out to him by Mr Samuel Nyamekye the CEO of Miracle Films Productions paved the way for him to stardom.
An excerpt translation from Akan language into English in which Akrobeto spoke
“Mr Nyamekye advised me not to go on a movie set with Agya Koo because he was as at the time very popular and anyone who appeared on the same movie set with him will not become popular like him. He made me reject any movie which had Agya Koo in it not because he didn’t like him, but he wanted me to become popular on my own also.”
