You Came Into The Scene With About Two Full-Fledged Movies – How Far Has The Journey Rolled Out?

It’s been a tried and tested journey, where the industry took us through a vigorous process to ascertain whether or not we belonged and I would like to say that by his Grace we are still here and ready to have another go at it hence, #Accrawedeydaseries.

A few Months Ago, You Brought In Your Italian Partners In Anticipation Of Another Blockbuster, So Far We Have Not Seen Or Heard Anything From Your Production House. Why Is That?

 

That was a very ambitious project we embarked on and I think we got a little bit ahead of ourselves when we weren’t in the capacity to execute. The project is not dead as we are fine tuning to deliver in the coming year. The budget was huge, thus, we are still putting things in place, and we trust God to see us through that journey.

Barcos Studio Is Back After Few Months Of Hiatus, What Is New Before The Year Ends?

Right now it is all about “Accra We Dey”#Accrawedeydaseries. This particular series is going to tell a lot about our beautiful country Ghana; we are hopeful because we have assembled the best hands, we have quality equipment, we have the technical know-how, we are ready to start production before 2017 rolls out.

‘Accra We Dey’ Series Seems To Be The Talk Of Town; Tell Us More About It.

We feel it’s a fantastic series that is remarkably written which will resonate with the audience. It’s a coming of age story. The series focuses on the struggles of five final years Senior High School students as they come to terms with the fact that they are no longer teenagers but full-fledged adults who must make decisions to benefit their future selves. The series explores themes like innocence, coming of age, revenge, spiritual enlightenment, death and the power of friendship.

How Would Series With Its Theme Directly Have Impact On The Viewers?

We are hoping to have the viewers engaged in the series as they can relate to the issues and life experiences of our characters. From the onset, we have put our house in order, thus, we know that the public would love it.

The Series Comes Across As An Authentic Ghanaian Story That Will Leave The Audience With Feelings Of Nostalgia And Fond Memories Of The Transition From Teenage Years To Adulthood. What Is That One Lesson That Would Be Learnt After The First Season Comes To An End?

You know history teaches us or should teach us that nothing is new and nothing is what it seems.

Let’s Talk Briefly About The Characters In The Forthcoming Series, How Interesting Are They In Connection With The Plot.

We have a phenomenal casting team that has spent considerable time to cast the perfect individual. Very soon they will be introduced to the audience, who we have no doubt will gravitate towards them.

How Soon Should Your Patrons, Fans And Sponsors Alike Be Expecting The Release Of The First Episode?

The first episode God willing should be out early first quarter next year (2018).

Kofi Siriboe covers Dec/Jan edition of ESSENCE magazine

Published

on

Ghanaian Hollywood star Kofi Siriboe covers the latest edition of top fashion magazine ESSENCE. The

The Danielle Kwateng-Clark piece describes the Queen Sugar star as “a young man with ambition”, who’s  “constantly delving deeper into his love of film and heritage”.

Conversation with the K Brothers: On Identity, Heritage, Purpose, and Spirit

 Only 23, Kofi is member of the “First African Family of Hollywood”, which also consists brothers and fellow actors  Kwame Boateng and Kwesi Boakye.

Read excerpts below: 

To truly know Kofi Siriboe is to love a young man with ambition. Yes, that skin, beard, perfect white teeth and toned stature immediately grab your attention. But behind the 6’2″ frame is a deeply conscious 23-year-old man constantly delving deeper into his love of film and heritage.

In his second season of OWN’s Queen Sugar, the talent plays Ralph Angel, the youngest brother of the Bordelon family reclaiming his birth right as a co-owner of their sugar cane farm. Balancing the process of redemption with fatherhood and business, his character is constantly challenged to step up to something greater than he ever expected.

“When I read the description, Ralph Angel was in a hard place,” the Ghanaian-American actor told ESSENCE in the Dec 2017/Jan 2018 issue.

TK

“He was with his son and about to rob a liquor store, but I didn’t see him as aggressive. I just thought he was broken. Even though I have not been incarcerated and don’t have a son, I remember a time when I felt broken. I also know what it’s like to try so hard and feel as if the world is against you.”

For Siriboe, he’s also trying hard to make his mark in the world with his debut project, Jump. He wrote, produced, directed and starred in the film about mental health. And then there was Girls Trip, the box-office hit he starred in that grossed over $100 million. But near and dear to his journey is fostering a deeper understanding of his African roots.

“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.”

“I didn’t always understand the roots that are woven into my name, but that realization is happening now.”
