Agya Koo Makes A Return
The lost of VETERAN movie star, Alex Kofi Adu popularly known as Agya Koo has been felt by many across board. His absence in the movie Industry, according to producers has created a big vacuum in the Industry.
In anxiety to resuscitate the movie industry, FILMMAKERS, Peter Sedufia and Kofi Asamoah are bringing their creative abilities together on a new movie titled, Away Bus which will see Agya Koo In Action.
Apart from Agya Koo, the Away Bus Movie will feature prominent personalities like John Dumelo, Mikki Osei-Berko, Fella Makafui, Tracey Boakye, radio personality, Abeiku Santana, Priscilla Opoku-Agyeman (Ahoufe Patri), Kalybos, among others.
The producers, Peter Sedufia and Kofi Asamoah, in an interview with Graphic Showbiz said, the stagnation in the movie industry which is due to the lack of funding, could also be attributed to a general lack of creativity which the likes of Agya Koo and others veterans exhibited in the past.
Peter and Kofi alluded to the fact that Agya Koo, who plays the role of an uncooperative passenger on board of a bus that has been attacked by armed robbers in Away Bus, played a key role in getting the Ghanaian movie industry back on its feet when foreign productions inundated our screens some years ago.
“At present, we have seen a similar trend where local productions have dropped with many people consuming foreign content owing to a neglect of the sector, and this is where we see Agya Koo as an asset to launch another rescue agenda,” they said.
According to them, Agya Koo wasn’t recruited into the new movie on the basis of just being an actor but also for his legendary roles in the Movie Industry over the past years.
“Agya Koo wasn’t recruited for ‘Away Bus’ movie just because he is an actor – we are bringing back a legend to help save the industry,” they stated.

Agya Koo, on the other hand, promised to live up to the expectations but called on Ghanaians to support their movie with the prayers and patronize as well.
“I’m going to strike to help the declining industry back on top because every country is progressing. We are not going to joke with ‘Away Bus’ movie. People should support us with their prayers,” Agya Koo added.
