One would have thought that the good old Kojo Dadson  would have lost interest in clubbing or perhaps left that adventure for the younger generation, but the celebrated actor and lead character of ‘Home Sweet Home’ tells NEWS-ONE he is yet to say goodbye to night clubs.
Kojo is believed to be nearing 70 yet he has confessed being a very regular patron of some of Accra’s most trendy night clubs.
 “You can check with the guys at Aphrodisiac Night Club, Boomerang Night Club and this club at Nyaniba. I forgot the name of that club but I will remember it later; I think it is Vanity or so. I still go to the clubs at my age,” he told NEWS-ONE when the paper caught up with him on the set of a new movie, ‘Doctor Love.’
Mr. Dadson, who is fondly called Dr. Love by pals in the industry, is the lead actor of the new comedy movie which has a striking storyline purported to be about his normal life.
His character is very different and not many movie fans have ever seen him play such a role.
He is playing the role of uncle Fifi, an elderly man who suddenly realizes that it is not too late to fulfil his dreams of becoming a rapper. But he has to go through a lot to convince his family, who think he is too old for rap music.
The actor was last week caught on set in Accra in a total new look as a rapper. He had his hair braided and was clad in baggy blue jeans, a red T-Shirt and combat foot wear and had accessorized with a huge chain.
“It is not too difficult and painful,” he said when asked if it was painful when braiding his hair.
According to him, the upcoming movie will not just change current trends in the acting business but will take his career to the next level.
“This project is going to open a new chapter in the entertainment industry. Believe me, I appreciate our industry and I believe that it is changing…so far our comedy is like concert, so to speak but I want you to put it to Ghanaians that this project is going to bring a new landscape to our entertainment industry and they should watch out for it,” he added.
Kojo Dadson, former student of the St. Augustine’s College, is an actor and a musician. He started acting long ago from the ‘Thursday Theatre’ days.
He played a significant role in Village Communication’s ‘Number 5 Kotokuraba Street.’ After a stint on ‘Sun City’, he joined Emmanuel Apea’s Revele Films to work on ‘Home Sweet Home’, which made him very popular.
He had hoped for a quiet role but was handed the role of the husband to Rama Brew, who had replaced Jackie Ankrah. He was also in Revele’s ‘Elimina’, directed by Emmanuel Appiah.
The hilarious actor also featured in international award-winning movie ‘Run Baby Run’ and other TV series like ‘Hotel St. James’, including other old time movie like ‘Love Brewed In an African Pot.  In 2009, he released a musical album titled ‘Who Is Ghana?’
Currently, Kojo Dadson also owns an acting and music school called BG Talent Institute located on the Ring Road near the Bus Stop Restaurant in Accra.
