In an interview with Peace FM, Ghanaian actor and Kumawood veteran Akwasi Boadi, also known in media circles as Akrobeto, spoke out about an issue that has been on Ghanaians’ minds for a long time.
There were rumors that Akrobeto had been barred from appearing in films alongside fellow veteran Agya Koo.
He did, however, clarify the situation and stated that he had avoided the subject for a long time for fear of journalists misinterpreting his words.
He went on to say that he was advised not to appear in films with Agya Koo because he would be overshadowed, as Agya was huge at the time and he, Akrobeto, was just starting out. Miracle Kwasi Nyamekye, a top Kumawood producer, gave him the advice.
Akrobeto stated that he owes his career to Agya because he made Kumawood profitable and appealing for others like himself to benefit from.
Akrobeto stated that he has a close relationship with Agya and recalls going to his house to thank him when he purchased his first car, a Kia Sportage; he also called the icon to express his gratitude when he purchased his Venza.
According to Akrobeto, he did this because he felt he owed Agya his career because he helped him get to where he is now in acting. Akrobeto lavished praise on Agya Koo, stating that it was difficult for a film producer to sell a film that did not feature Agya.
Akrobeto mentioned an interesting name that was given to Agya back in Kumasi. He said they called him ”KingKong” due to the massive impact he had.
