Kofi Siriboe just keeps getting sexier. Peep the hottie’s ESSENCE magazine cover, plus find out which of your rap faves made Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List inside...
Just when you think Kofi Siriboe couldn’t get any sexier, he does. Lawdt.
The “Queen Sugar” actor graces the cover of ESSENCE magazine’s Dec 2017/Jan 2018 issue. And he looks hot as ever.
Inside, the 23-year-old star opens up about how he’s connecting with his African roots in a way he never has before.
"I didn't always understand the roots that are woven into my name, but that realization is happening now,” he said.
In fact, Kofi isn’t his full first name and when he was younger, he asked his teacher not to call him his full name in fear of the other children making fun of him.
"In first grade I was asked 'What's your favorite food?' I said, 'Fufu,' and everybody laughed. I also remember asking my teacher not to say my full name, Nana-Kofi [Nana means 'son of kings']. Last year I went to Kumasi, in Ghana, for the first time and met the king, whose real name is Nana."
YAS, King Kofi.
