News-One has received photographs that show the uncovered buttocks and sex organs of popular Ghanaian actor Agya Koo, known in real life as Kofi Adu.
Reports said the photos were taken on set while Aga Koo was acting completely naked in the yet-to-be released movie, ‘Okomfo Anokye’.
What makes the photos news worthy is not only the actor’s nakedness but the fact that he has over the years criticized and even insulted his colleague actors who play nude roles in movies.
The photographs show Agya Koo (apparently playing the role of the legendary Ashanti traditional priest, Okomfo Anokye) taking his bath on the banks of a river. In other shots, some three women were seen spying on his nakedness.
In May 2010, he threatened to hit the streets of Kumasi and called on his fans to join him on a demonstration against actors who go naked in movies.
“As I speak to you now, people are coming from different towns in buses, to come and support my fight. My fellow actors, producers and several people from the movie industry are all coming in their numbers. People are calling to encourage me, even market women have decided to leave their businesses to march on the streets with me. Do you think if what I am doing is not good all, these people will leave their work to come and support me?”, Agya Koo told Peace FM’s Entertainment Review in an interview to explain his mission.
It therefore comes as a surprise that the same actor, would accept to strip naked before movie cameras.
The ‘Okomfo Anokye’ movie, tells the story of Okomfo Anokye, a legendary Ashanti priest and co-founder of the Ashanti Kingdom. It was produced by the Kumasi based Paul Adjei, Chief Executive of Paul Gee Productions and the movie has been invited for the 66th Cannes Film Festival in France.
Other stars in the movie are Akrobeto as Ntim Gyakari, Kyeiwaa as Okomfo Anokye’s mother, Lil Win among others seasoned stars.
