She made this revelation following the launch of the Agya Koo TV app at the Accra Mall on January 4, 2018.
According to Madam Afeku, as part of efforts to promote local content on television, the statistics that were made available to the Ministry indicated that Agya Koo born as Alex Kofi Adu, is more popular than the international actor, John Dumelo.
She was responding to questions on why her ministry chose Agya Koo and not John Dumelo who has an outstanding number of followers online and could sell to a larger audience, the minister debunked the assertion, insisting Agya Koo is the more popular of the two because people residing in the rural areas do not know John Dumelo.
She further disclosed to Attractivemuspha.com that, the initiative is not solely to project Agya Koo but to boost the image of the Ghanaian movie industry onto the world.
Madam Afeku revealed that there would be similar Apps for ace industry players such as Daddy Lumba, Kojo Antwi, Jackie Appiah, Lil Win among others.
