The past two years seemed a drought season for popular actor Agya Koo which led to a lot of speculations in the media.
The Kumasi based actor in a recent interview explained his absence.
Speaking on Skyy Power FM in Takoradi, Agya Koo disclosed that his absence has been due to the fact that most producers claimed his charges were too much and casting Lil Win or any other actor was more affordable to them.
“Let me tell you the truth today, the Producers say I charge so much and using someone like Lil Win can make you get extra casts. But same Producers brought Porpo (Osita Iheme) from Nigeria and paid him more than GHC40, 000 ($17000). My charges are not even GHC5, 000 ($2100).”
Speaking of his seemingly falling popularity, compared to Lil Win, Agya Koo explained the latter could in no way be compared to him.
“I am in the Guinness book of Record for acting more movies than anyone in the world, Judges, high profiled people like Kufuor and others watch my movies and you are asking if Lil Win is popular than me.”
“I am wealthier than he is and he cannot compare himself to me in anyway. My Production House (Titi Mbofra) raised the standard of local movies in Ghana. We were the saviors of local movies when no attention was paid to local movies.”
The actor didn’t say when he is likely to go on production or be seen back on the screens.
