Veteran actor, Bob Smith Jnr, popularly known as Diabolo has asked colleague, Agya Koo, to apologise for claiming that he redeemed the image of a ‘dying’ Ghana movie industry.

Agya Koo, known in real life as Alexander Kofi Adu, had said that his absence on screen has created a vacuum for Kumkum Bhagya and other telenovelas on various television stations. According to him, he revived the movie industry at a time movies from Nigeria had taken over Ghana’s market.

But Bob Smith Jnr believes the comment that he revived the industry is never true.

“I don’t know why he said that nor what he was asked. But if he did with pride, he should apologise. You are an actor, you paid your dues; but to say you revived it, I disagree,” he said on Hitz FM.

Adding his voice to the issue, Secretary of Film Producers Association of Ghana, James Aboagye agreed with Bob Smith Jnr.

“The best he can say is, he has paid his dues. To say he redeemed the industry, I beg to differ because the industry was there before him,” he intimated.

Until recently, movie producers were not engaging the services of Agya Koo due to what they described as, “arrogance” on the part of the actor. They argued that, Agya Koo on a number of occasions charged exorbitantly and showed disrespect to movie producers because he thought they needed him more than he did.

Although some have decided to engage him after a meeting to settle the issue amicably, most movie producers are certain they can do without him.
