QUOTES

“It is up to anybody to decide whether they feel English movie is good for them. If it is, they should go for them while we also patronize our local ones.”-Agya Koo“

In fact, I sometimes find it very hard to understand why Ghanaians want to learn other country’s language first before theirs. It’s very absurd. When you watch foreign movies like Chinese and Indian, they use their own languages and interpret them for others to understand; so why can’t we also use our local language and interpret it as well.”-Agya Koo“

…proverb said in the local language is more pleasing in the ears than in English. So I rest my case.”-Agya Koo
