Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu has defended veteran Ghanaian actor Sebastian Alex Kofi Adu, popularly known in movies and the entertainment industry as Agya Koo.
Kwaku Manu detailed that people who are criticising the actor over his mansion and linking it to politics as his source of funding are misled.

Further into the video which sought to clear the air on rumours that Agya Koo's achievements are a result of his political affiliation, Kwaku Manu revealed that Agya Koo was making a whopping GH¢4,000 in 2009.
The pained actor, disappointed in some Ghanaians for spreading false news about Agya Koo, claimed that though he came into the industry years after Agya Koo, he had built a home and a school by himself with his little earnings, which was nowhere near the legendary actor's earnings.
Kwaku Manu added that the celebrated actress Mercy Asiedu was part of the people in Agya Koo's life who influenced his decision to secure the land on which he built his mansion.
Kwaku Manu said:
I have known Agya Koo for a very long time. Mercy Asiedu is one of the people who needs to be praised for her influence in Agya Koo's life and mansion.When I came into the movie industry, he was already the godfather of Kumawood movies. No one did anything special aside from him. He was paid over GH¢4,000 in 2009.
I was able to use part of my little earnings to build a house and a school. So what is the fuss about a legendary actor who has worked so hard and was able to receive such amounts in the past?
