Kofi Siriboe (Flacco) is already making waves in the entertainment industry and is becoming one of the premiere sought after young actors in Hollywood. Born and raised in Los Angeles California, he is first generation West African and the great grandson of a highly respected Ghanaian King of the Juaben / Ashanti tribe. The life-changing encounter with an agent at a mall in Beverly Hills launched Siriboe's career at the tender age of 6yrs old.
Kofi has already amassed quite a resume, quickly building a reputation as a "director's actor". His unique ability landed him his silver screen debut portrayal of "Javy Hall" in Ice Cube's The Longshots. Since then, he has added other films such as; Academy Award winning film Whiplash and a lead role in the coming of age story Kicks, slated to premiere at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.
On the small screen, Siriboe has lent his talent to hit television shows like CSI: Lincoln Heights and MTV's teen comedy hit Awkward. Currently, Kofi is a series regular in critically acclaimed director Ava Duvernay's television drama Queen Sugar, co-executive produced by Oprah Winfrey. When he is not pursuing his passion of acting, he is collaborating with other creatives in the arts, writing songs or modeling for Wilhelmina NY. A budding philanthropist, he is committed to working with children through multiple charitable causes across the globe.
KICKS is a funny, touching and street smart coming-of-age dramedy that oozes with style.
