Kumawood actor Agya Koo insists that the movie industry cannot thrive without his active involvement.
Speaking on Ezra FM, a Kumasi-based radio station, he asserted that his exclusion has negatively impacted the industry, emphasizing his role as the most marketable actor.
Despite attributions of the industry's decline to the rise of CDs, Agya Koo believes his return is crucial for its revival.
This isn't the first time he has made such claims, yet he steadfastly maintains that he is the face of Ghanaian cinema marketing.
Agya Koo reflected on the vibrant days of Kumawood, recalling how his name became synonymous with Ghanaian cinema, especially among Ghanaians abroad, notably in the USA.
He argued that his unparalleled marketability and influence were evident when people inquired about Ghanaian movies, often specifically asking if he was part of the cast.
"Though I was not the only one acting at the time, whenever people wanted to watch Ghanaian movies, they mentioned the name Agya Koo. Why didn't they ask for someone else's name?" he questioned.
