According to the estranged father also known as Agya Koo, he had an amorous affair with the mother of the actor in the early 60s at the now-defunct Meridian Hotel in Tema.
The affair resulted in the conception and birth of Agya Koo whose birth date is May 25, 1969.
Explaining why he was absent from their life, he noted that after she informed him of the outcome of their encounter, Agya Koo’s mother disappeared, leaving no trace of their whereabouts.
He revealed that he had no idea that Agya Koo was his son until recently when he saw him on television.
“I only heard that she had given birth and named him Kofi Adu, only for me to see him on television as Agya Koo. I just knew that he was my son because of certain characteristics and traits he exhibits,” he said

While the claims made by Mr Bediako have yet to be confirmed, they have certainly sparked a lot of interest and speculation on social media.
Asked why he’s waited all this while to finally disclose his identity the aged man said he had avoided the encounter because he was shy.
“If I met him today, I’ll jump and hug him as my son but I’ve never reached out because I was shy and afraid. I did not want it to look like I was chasing him because of his pedigree in life,” he disclosed.
Mr Bediako’s startling revelations has raised several questions online including the whereabouts of Agya Koo’s mother and the circumstances leading to her raising Agya Koo as a single mother.
