Veteran actor Kofi Adjorlolo has revealed that he will pursue fishing (one of his most treasured hobbies) when he bows out of acting.

He revealed this during an interview with DJ Premier on Accra 100.5 FM’s Entertainment Capital on Saturday June 11. Responding to a question about whether he will retire from the screens very soon, he insisted that he was not ready to retire because “when you need great grandfathers in the movie, you will definitely have to call me”.

However, when he finally bows out from acting, he “would like to be a fisherman because I am from the Volta Region, to be precise, Keta”.

He, however, added that if the need arises for him to go into movie production, it will be as a result of “the pressure [to stay and contribute to the industry] but not because of money”.

Adjorlolo is the son of Mr Johnny Adjorlolo and Madam Matilda Johnson and the second of three children. He comes from Keta, a coastal settlement in the Volta Region, where he had his early education at AME Zion School, Keta Secondary School and later went to Ebenezer Secondary School in Accra, where he had his sixth form education.

“After my sixth form education, I became a professional musician playing with a number of bands including that of Nigeria's Victor Uwaifo of Joromi fame.

“In between my stay at GBC and working for Media Number One, I was offered a job as a Marketing Manager at Peace FM. After eight months, I was called by the current Ghanaian ambassador to Benin, Mr E. K. Adu, to assist in the establishment of another radio station, now Channel R. Later my cousin, Richard Prempeh, the Executive Producer of Taxi Driver [TV series] asked me to write scripts for the series and possibly join the cast. That is how I entered acting.”

Mr Adjorlolo has featured in several movies including God Loves Prostitutes, Mummy's Daughter, My Mother's Heart, Official Prostitutes, and in Ghana-Nigeria collaborations such as My First Experience, Golden Adventure, and Power of the Gods.

He has starred in movies with renowned Nigerian actors like Ini Edo, Genevieve Nnaji, Patience Ozorkor, Ramsey Nouah, Emeka Ike, Olu Jacobs, and Ikem Owoh aka Osuofia.
