Fast rising Ghanaian actor widely known among the Akan movie community as Mmebusem has refuted claims that he is imitating veteran actor Kofi Adu also known as Agya Koo.
The actor who has since 2012 gathered a reasonably large following explained although he had had reviews from people which suggested his craft has a lot of similarities compared to that of Agya Koo, he never believes imitating anyone would be beneficial especially when being real could see him far in showbiz.
“My brother, why should I be an imitation when people will always opt for the original? Would you prefer an original phone from the UK or America to an imitation from China? No. I am staying true to myself as that will pave greater chances for me.
Agya Koo is a great actor and I would wish to attain his height and even more in terms of career but not to be him.” He added.
Born Justice Hymns, the actor started his career in 2007 where he followed movie producers around and help them with production works on set. He however had the chance to make one scene appearances later until 2012 when he had a major role to play.
He has so far starred in several films including Nsroma the Shoe Shine boy, Electricity Power, Evangelist LilWin, School girl and the latest being Agya ne Oba, a movie which sees him and his son try to outwit each other.
Early this year, he had had acted in a movie “Agya Awieye” which was out rightly bought by stakeholders from the movie industry and prevented from being released.
Speaking as to how he got the name Mmebusem which means Proverbs, the actor disclosed to www.nydjlive.com that his regular reference to the book of Proverbs led most of his friends to call him Mmebusem.
Asked why he loved to refer to the book of Proverbs, the actor explained he had the passion to spread the word of God to all humanity and therefore it necessary to push it through the movies.
“At times people think I joke with the quotations I cite but the very ones who check on them realize I make such references to tally with the situation at hand in the movies…… I do not only quote from Proverbs as others think but rather from the entire Bible.”
Justice Hymns has promised to make his fans proud as he takes on major roles.
