Kofi Adu, known in the movie industry as Agya Koo is 54 years old today.

Agya Koo born, May 25, 1969 praised the Lord on his 54th birthday celebration saying, it is “marvelous in our sight”.

“Happy birthday to me ! It’s the Lords doing and it’s marvelous in our sights”. He tweeted.


The Ghanaian actor and comedian, Kofi Adu is originally from the Ashanti Region of Ghana, but lived in a suburb in Accra Newtown called Asantewaa. He worked as a cobbler. Adu was discovered on a Ghanaian comedy show on GTV (Ghana National Television) at the National Theater in Accra, where he worked as a comedian warming up the crowd before the main drama was staged.

In July 2008, he was awarded a National Award by then-Ghanaian President John Agyekum Kufuor. Although he originally journeyed to Accra to sing, Agya Koo has been featured in many Ghanaian movies, 15 of which remain his favorite.

Avoiding the normal procedure of thoroughly reading a script before acting in films, he told Joy FM’s former morning show host Kojo Oppong Nkrumah that while actors and actresses are typically given scripts two weeks before they begin shooting, his God-given talent allows him to improvise without a script.

He has been in movies with Aboagye Brenya, Lil Win, Kwaku Manu, Mercy Aseidu to name a few.

Personal life

In June 2016, Adu got remarried to Rita Asiedu in London, UK after dating for 4 years. He was previously married to Victoria Owusu Adomako but divorced. He is a Christian.


He has appeared in over 200 Ghanaian movies including Obaatanpa, Away Bus, Black Star, and Ma Tricki Wo.
