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.
