Koofori, the Actor/Comedian in AMERICA

Ghanaians have been wondering for the past weeks the whereabouts of Koofori, the drunken presenter of GOOD MORNING MR. PRESIDENT ON Radio Gold 90.5FM. The man who doubles as a comedian extraordinaire and thrills fans on the popular local series 'Efiewura', adds a huge dose of spice and condiment to Radio Gold's morning programmes when he lands in the studio, often in a drunken stupor. All the same, he delivers a lot of advice for the President every week day morning, sometimes in a blunt and uncharitable manner, if the issues are hot and sizzling. You can only expect that from an irredeemable alcoholic who surprisingly has a full grasp on national issues.

Koofori's voice is always expected and welcomed at breakfast-time in many homes and his absence for almost a month has kept people wondering, but hey! the man is relaxing in America.The President listens to him every week day while having breakfast.He has no choice.This man is the first person to greet the nation's Chief Executive Officer every morning. Drunken Koofori is a real bother to Mr. President. Drunken as he may sound, Koofori never takes a drop of alcohol. Never! Whenever he stars in the popular screen drama 'EFIEWURA' as the drunken and womanising husband of a dutiful and faithful wife, he plays the role NATURALLY without taking in any alcohol beverage. This heavily contradicts the opinion many have of him as a notorious drunkard.

The Radio Gold presenter is known in private life as Samuel Seth Kwabena Kyere Karikari. Koofori is a popular Actor and a Comedian as well.His acting career has seen him in prominent productions like; "Ghana @ 50", "Koofori in London", "Saul Paul", "50 Thousand", "Koti Academy", "Odo Pa", and a host of others. He has been a regular comedian on TV3's "Music Music" and "Laugh & Rock" along side Nigerian's no. 1 comedian, Basket mouth. He has also featured been in a number of television commercials and video clips including; "Obiaa nye Obiaa", "African money" (Sidney), "Ye pra pra" (Praye), "Pusher", "Playboy" and many more. Currently, he is on a holiday in America with the queen of Gospel Music, Ohemaa Mercy.

On a good day, one could bump into him as the MC at one social event or another. According to Koofori, make sure you put on PAMPERS before you meet him, because you'll LAUGH your head off. Contact number. 5715773486 or E-mail, kooforri@yahoo.com, koofori69@rocketmail.com
