Kumawood actors ‘not primitive’ – Adjorlolo

Kofi AdjorloloGhanaian actor Kofi Adjorlolo, who has revealed his love for Twi films, popularly known as Kumawood movies, has praised producers in that sector for the seriousness they attach to their work.

“Kumawood’s producers are more serious than Accra’s. When it is time to work, they do not joke. They are very organised, but my only problem is the content,” he told DJ Premier on Accra100.5FM’s Entertainment Capital, Saturday June 11.

Mr Adjorlolo has revealed his admiration for Nana Ama McBrown in the past due to her versatility, perfectly executing her roles in both Twi and English productions.

The 61-year-old added, “People who say Twi actors are primitive do not know what they are talking about.”

After eight months, I was called by the current ambassador to Benin, Mr E. K. Adu, to assist in the establishment of another radio station, now Channel R. Later, my cousin, Richard Prempeh, the Executive Producer of Taxi Driver, asked me to write scripts for the series and possibly join the cast. That is how I entered acting,” he recalled.
