Kumawood actor Oboy Siki known privately as Nana Kofi Agyemang, has said that he regrets stating that veteran actor Agya Koo's mansion was built with earnings from politics.
He detailed that others, including Agya Koo, had resorted to politics as a means of survival since the Kumawood movie industry was not thriving anymore.
In an interview with Angel Fm, Oboy Siki said that though he was not wrong about his earlier statement concerning Agya Koo's involvement in politics and its aid in his built mansion, yet, he should not have mentioned it.

Oboy Siki added that when the late Bob Santo, the celebrated comedian and Kumawood actor, was no more, Agya Koo was the saviour of Kumawood movies. Oboy Siki continued explaining that the actor had done a lot for Kumawood and Ghanaian movies but was later removed from several scenes by producers who claimed he had grown arrogant and impassionate about his acting job.
Oboy Siki said:
"I regret stating that he used money from politics to fund his building. I think if I had said it in a different way, they would have still understood the message I was sending.
In 2016. Ghana movie had gone down. Agya Koo had mounted his mansion but was not completed yet. When producers called him names and claimed he was arrogant, they cut him out of movies.
"Because he did not have funding to continue his mansion, he resorted to politics just like many actors and actresses did. They joined either NDC or NPP. In 2020, people who joined political parties started reaping from their efforts".
