Popularly known in showbiz by his fans and in the entertainment industry as IKE – The Entertainer, Isaac Kofi Arthur is his real name.
Isaac Kofi Arthur was born on December 25, 1987. He is a Ghanaian actor, advertising (commercial) model, creative writer, CEO of IA MULTIMEDIA and an entrepreneur.
Born and raised by Ghanaian parents in Tema, Isaac began as a model when he graduated from the Exopa modeling school in 2008.
In 2009 he went on to become the event co-ordinator for Ghana fashion weekend which brought the Ghanaian American actor, Boris Kodjoe to Ghana under the umbrella of Exopa model agency.
He went on to participate in a male talent hunt show called ‘Mr. Split Personality’ where he emerged as the overall winner out of the 9 competing guys.
He landed a tv commercial after his performance in the show with Capital Line Investment Limited.
Moreover, Isaac went on to land a lead role in a tv series called ‘Primary Mates’ that featured Raquel Ammah the singer, Jessica Larnyoh and Sabrina Paleari.
After the (pilot) season 1 was shot making preparation for season 2 to be shot, the director and producer of the show Mr. Jewette Johnson passed on so the series couldn’t come on air.
Isaac went to the Creativeland film school for a while and left due to personal reasons and started making his own research online about the entertainment industry especially acting.
After senior high school Isaac enrolled at the Zenith University College and studied Business Information Systems (BIS) for a while and pulled out to pursue his acting dream.
He appeared on the runway for Sarkodie’s clothing line called Sark collections which was held at Aphrodisiac night club in 2013.
In 2014, he was casted to play a lead in Airtel’s Tv commercial dubbed ‘Airtel Premier’.
Subsequentlty, in 2015 Ike landed a supporting role in Pascal Amanfo’s produced Christian movie titled “In God’s Name” which later the title of the movie was changed to “tithe” where he played the character Van -a married man who was cheating on his wife in church.
Also, he had played the role of ‘Osa’ (a man who was snatching someone’s wife) in Florex Media’s “Seasons In A Vow” which was premiered later in 2016 and starred Roselyn Ngissah, Kafui Danku and other movie stars.
In 2016, Isaac appeared on the runway again at Accra fashion week which was held at the Trade Fair organised by fashionghana.com
Few months after the fashion week, he suffered a raptured appendicitis that nearly took his life away if God hadn’t intervened.
After a successful surgical operation, he came out with a novel dubbed ‘Beyond The Grave’.
When asked about why the title ‘Beyond The Grave’ in an interview with Kafui Danku on the Kafui Danku youtube show, Isaac said the inspiration of the title was derived from his painful experience at the hospital and also he wanted to play with the mind of the readers a bit when reading his first ever fiction novel.
According to Isaac, ‘Beyond The Grave’ will be put in a movie in the nearby future. His novel is first of its kind in the film industry which comes with picture illustrations of characters in the story acted out by about 97% new faces of actors emerging into the Ghana film industry. He further said on the Kafui Danku YouTube channel show that his main aim of using many new faces initially in the book is because he wants the readers to be able to have a connection with and familiarise themselves with the new actors and characters in the story before releasing the movie. He is a registered member of the Ghana Actors Guild 🎥🇬🇭.
Isaac went on to land parts in movies such as In 3 days, where he played the role of weapon, a supporting character to Ekow Smith Asante, The Cross movie, Save The Street, Nansins etc.

Isaac played the role of Oko Danger in a movie titled Wolves In Love shot by Ahene Lyrikal of Lyrics Media Concepts (LMC) directed by Lucky Evergreen of Erhaze Films which news came out after that the movie got missing at the editing bench according to the editor so the movie couldn’t come out.
