The sex and insults in our movies are getting too much – Agya Koo

Renowned Kumawood actor Kofi Adu, also known as Agya Koo, has taken a firm stance against the excessive use of profanity and explicit scenes in Ghanaian movies.

In a recent interview on Joy FM, Agya Koo expressed his concerns about the negative impact such content could have on the younger generation. He shared that even Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II had reached out to him, expressing similar concerns about the state of local films and the prevalence of insults and explicit scenes in them.

Agya Koo emphasized that he has been a vocal advocate against such content and has consistently urged filmmakers to exercise restraint. However, he revealed that he faced ridicule from his peers when he raised the issue.

“I’ve always said this, I have been campaigning about this. I was even called by the Otumfuo, who also raised a similar issue: the sex scenes in the movies are too much, and they are very dangerous to society.

“Even when I raised the issue with some stakeholders, I was laughed at. I’ve spoken up multiple times about it,” he said.

Citing the case of Bollywood, where explicit scenes and insults are often avoided, Agya Koo called for filmmakers to be responsible in their storytelling methods and to make sure they align with societal values.

“If you look at the Bollywood movies, when it comes to intimate scenes, they skip them. You can see that they know what they’re doing.

“…when we show movies featuring insults and sex scenes, what are we trying to show? We need to be circumspect in the kind of content we show to our children,” he stated.
