50 Cent's "Power" Influence Detailed By Series Creator Courtney Kemp Agboh

"Power" show runner Agboh explains how 50 Cent helped build Ghost's character on the program.

50 Cent's work on Power has been detailed by the program's actors, but Courtney Kemp Agboh, the series creator and show runner, recently opened up about how 50 Cent influenced the show's foundation. 

“He really helped me build Ghost,” Agboh says in an interview with the New York Times. “Because I am not actually a superrich, urban human. I’m kind of middle of the road.”

Power isn't the only thing Agboh and 50 Cent bonded over.

“50 Cent and I really started to bond over our love for music,” Agboh says. “The first conversations we had were about Curtis Mayfield.”

50's involvement with Power was recently praised by Omari Hardwick, the show's star.

"It was pretty amazing," Hardwick said of 50's dedication to the show. "He's tried... and proven in other parts of his life, as a mogul, as a Rap artist. It was really interesting for me to see him take on the executive producer hat of a show like this. He had done producing before...but to see him be active and take my phone call on the dime...If I'd call and go, 'We really need you on the set today.' We have an incredible cast, so it wasn't just me, it would be me speaking for the cast and going, 'Folks need your energy today.' And he'd be down in like 30 minutes. He was really active...He's great to work with." 

Recently, Starz announced that Power earned a second season.

    GREAT SHOW EVEN OFFICER RICKY WATCHES IT, TO GET IDEAS FOR SONGS AND VIDEOS

  • traaciwinz

    nice show. my only problem with the show is they spend far too much time with ghost and angela talking about their feelings. It gets boring when they revert to that 3 and 4 times in an episode. Pretty easy to figure out 50 was behind it once he told his son to start telling him what was going on. In true Starz fashion, I wouldnt be surprised if 50 gets bumped off in finale. Starz, except for Spartacus, usually comes up short. They need 50 for next season. Can't just be ghost and angela talking about their feelings again.

      You can tell that the writer is spending alot of time on that so it can be super dramatic when she has to bring down his empire. The shit with Tommy and the red head is what I'm not getting.its like how they get this far if they simp with bitches to this degree?
