The former manager of Kumawood actor, Kwaku Manu, Isaac Kyei Andoh has named Akwasi Boadi Akrobeto as the most consistent actor in the Ghanaian local movie industry.
Ahead of Agya Koo, Lilwin and others, Isaac in a long post sighted by Nagtv.net said Akrobeto is the most consistent male actor in the history of local movies in the country.
With about fifteen (15) years of activeness, the opinionated journalist and movie enthusiast stated that the actor has been very professional playing roles with Agya Koo, Lilwin, Kwaku Manu and others even when it became visible that these actors were having issues with themselves.
According to him, Akrobeto has never been out of the game following his emergence into the local Ghanaian movie scene.
He touted how the popular actor worked hard to be one of the best actors in the country.

When Santo died around 2002, Ghana movie lost a lot of grounds, Nigerian movies took completely over our local industry. TV, sales point, Mr Ibu was a household name.
Ghana was dominated by Nigeria in Ghana.
Then Agya Koo emerged, along with Nana Ama Mcbrown and co, they won the love back. Agya Koo was the go to get guy, movies were titled with his name, without him, it wasn’t a movie enough. Akrobero featured in these movies, he was one of the few people from the concert party era to have made such successful transition into the movie industry. Agya Koo himself, arguably the best comedian in the concert party era reigned as the King of Ghana Movie between 2005 and 2011 (Date may not be entirely accurate)
Then Kweku Manu emerged, within a short time, he was the most sort after in the industry. Though unofficial, he introduced me as his manager, brother and what not so I know quite a lot about the dominant years of Kweku. In one year, that is 2012 if I’m not mistaken, Kweku featured in over 50 movies. Actively featuring in this era was Akrobeto. Agya Koo was no longer getting a lot of roles.
