50 Cent and Courtney Kemp Agboh, the executive producer and show runner, respectively, of new Starz series Power, recently discussed the television business and commonalities they share that helped with the creation of the series.
Reports The Urban Daily:
Entertainment can create the strangest of bedfellows–case in point, Curtis “50 Cent” Jacksonand Courtney Kemp Agboh. Agboh, a former journalist turned Emmy nominated producer, is part of a very exclusive sorority of Black female showrunners on primetime TV. And who doesn’t know 50 Cent’s “rags to riches” story; a former drug dealer turned rapper, turned filthy rich business mogul. While the casual observer might think Agboh and 50 Cent would have little in common, the two are bound by their drive and ambition to succeed in their respective arenas.
“My father’s journey and Curtis’ journey are very similar. Although they obviously did different things, they both start from a lower income area and get out of the hood.”
