Popular Ghanaian actor, Agya Koo, known in private life as Alex Kofi Adu, has refuted a recent report about him.
He reportedly advised parents in Ghana to take their children to safer countries because of insecurity in the country.
“Currently, most parents in this country are not comfortable even when their kids go out to play because they fear something might happen to their children. For me, if you are a parent and you have what it takes, send your children to America or other safer countries. The killing and kidnapping are too much in this country,” he was quoted to have said.
But in reaction to the publication, Agya Koo in a video seen by Newshuntermag.com bemoaned over an attempt to defame him by some people.
“It hurts when people try to ruin your reputation, they can use just a single day to bring you down. Some online platforms are trying to wrongly accuse me of something I didn’t say. In fact, I can never say that. They claim I have issued a strong warning to parents to send their children abroad. Those circulating the news did not call me to confirm the story.
“I never said that, as we know, they couldn’t even provide a voice or a video of me saying that. Just because I am famous and also close to the NPP, they want to say this to disgrace the party but I want to let them know that this cannot shame the party,” he stated.
Agya Koo reiterated his support for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Nana Addo’s government.
He, therefore, called on the public to disregard the report.
