It looks like popular Kumawood actor, Kofi Adu aka Agya Koo may have a lot to explain after a leaked tape reveals that Nana Addo was not the originally intended presidential candidate the actor wanted to endorse.
Agya Koo insisted he endorsed the New Patriotic Party and its flagbearer due to the evident hardships Ghanaians were going through under the administration of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Now a new leaked tape obtained by Ghbase.com which captured what sounds like the voice of Agya Koo reveals that the actor’s initial instinct was to join the celebrities for Mahama but his inability to access the presidency led to him taking the second best option.
In the audio, Agya Koo laments about how he’s being denied some of the "endorsement money" as well as access to the president and his wife, so he can also get the share of the money to endorse him.
Agya Koo is heard saying, “I really like the president and his wife and I even hate it when someone badmouths them… I have tried to reach them (the president and his wife) four times to no avail and I don’t know what is going on.”
He then tells the person he was speaking to on a phone that, that among many things, so he has decided to throw his weight behind Nana Akuffo Addo.
It appears this audio was recorded before he officially came out to declare his support for the NPP.
Agya Koo has been bashed by several members and sympathisers of the NDC especially when he said that he’s not acted in the last five years due to Mahama’s bad governance, making things tough for producers to even cash him for roles in movies.
Now, it seems evident that had things gone a bit different, Agya Koo would have been among the celebrities for Mahama.
Take a listen to the tape below.
