Check out new images of “Queen Sugar” star Kofi Soriboe for BLEU Magazine. Inside, the “Girls Trip” actor and former model opens up about being a feminist and honoring his mother—Koshi Mills. Soriboe also talks about Ava DuVernay’s #BlackGirlMagic, Africa and much more.
Kofi on his mother, Koshi Mills: “I’m just honoring her, and honoring her through my existence…like who I am, what I represent. That to me is rooted in my character and my mother—I came out of her. That’s an ode to her.”
Kofi on Ava DuVernay’s influence: “I respect Ava so much,” he reflects. “Its like a kid trying to live up to their parents expectations. You know I’m working so closely with people like Oprah and Ava and its literally magic. I’m just taking it one step at a time.”
Kofi on bridging the gap between Africa and African-Americans: “I feel like there’s a disconnect between Africans and African-Americans. More than 80 percent of us have never been back to Africa. I’m Ghanaian and I just went back for the first time. It’s just a lack of information, a lack of knowledge, a lack of understanding.”
