Ghpage.com brings to its readers ten highly rated Kumawood actors of all time.
- Katawere (Ebenezer Donkor)
The name of this veteran actor is a household name. Until he recently passed, Katawere was one of the few old men in Kumawood who gave us a dose of what good acting entails.
He played the role of a controversial man in most of the movies he was cast in. Besides that, he was witty and will never complete a single sentence without a piece of the proverb in there. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

Micheal Afrane undoubtedly is one of the highly-rated actors in Kumawood. The veteran actor is among those who nurtured Kumawood to make it what is today.
The controversy is the hallmark of this talented afro hair man whenever he is cast. He is always either been cast as a ruthless uncle or a spiritual man who deals ruthlessly with anyone who crosses him…lol.
- Mr. Beautiful (Clement Bonney)
This versatile actor is counted among the best actors in Kumawood. he can play the role of a lover boy, rich man, shoeshine boy, teacher, etc and he plays it to perfection.
Although he is hardly seen in movies of late because of the controversy that surrounded his political affiliation with the NDC party, he is still an important actor in Kumawood.

- Kwaku Manu
Kwaku Manu popularly knows as Kwaku killer is one of the highly known and rated actors in Kumawood. It was Kwaku Manu who took over from the Veteran actor Agya Koo when his popularity went down. He is talented, aggressive, and plays each role to perfection.
Fans, however, have complained of his constant use of abusive language in most of his movies, but all in all, he is hilarious, very talented and he definitely can’t be underrated.
- Agya Koo (Kofi Adu)
Some say this gentleman single-handed built Kumawood into the movie industry. His ability to make people laugh was and is still exceptional.
Although credited for ressurecting the collpased industry, Agya Koo has now veered into politics and not seen in movies lately. He has blamed it on sobatge in several interviews.
But the fact still remains, Agya Koo is one of the very highly rated Kumawood actors of all time and he spot can never bee taken from him at all.
- Apostle John Prah
Before Apostle John Prah entered the movie scene, Ghanaians were accustomed to the timid nature of pastors in movies. This man changed all that.

Kumasi John Dumelo as he affectionately called because of his romantic nature in movies is among the best actors in Kumawood. He doesn’t joke when the camera starts rolling and he always performs to satisfaction.

I know many will be disappointed he didn’t take a comfortable lead in this list…lol. Lil Win is one of the talented actors in Ghana presently.
