Summer may quickly be slipping away, but the season is just starting to heat up thanks to upcoming television and film premieres from entertainment’s newest heartthrob and man-crush, Kofi Siriboe. This month, the 22-year Los Angeles native boldly covers Upscale’s Best of the Best issue swathed in show-stopping looks from Italian fashion-house Etro.
During the exclusive shoot in Atlanta, Siriboe told Senior Editor, Satchel B. Jester:
“”I’ve always wanted to reach beyond just entertaining, with an overall goal of being reflective and introspective in everything I attempt.”
He also acknowledges his newfound “bae” status and says:
“I was a little chubby boy that was homeschooled, so I was a bit different. I never did prom and those things. I always laid low, but now, I’m getting used to it!”
Evident by his premiere magazine cover, September is a huge month for the primetime maverick who made his debut in the highly anticipated OWN Drama Queen Sugar, originating the role of “Ralph Angel Bordelon” that aired on September 6th & 7th, and he will be playing the male supporting lead of “Flaco” in the urban coming-of-age film Kicks, which makes its debut on September 9th.
Siriboe’s past credits include; Toronto film festival favorite 40, Academy Award winning film Whiplash, and a heavily recurring role as “Tyler Miller” on MTV‘s teen comedy hit Awkward.

Receiving rave reviews at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, KICKS will now be hitting theaters on September 9. The movie written by Justin Tipping and Joshua Beirne-Golden stars Notorious B.I.G. and Faith Evans‘ son, Christopher Jordan Wallace, Jahking Guillory, Christopher Meyer, Kofi Siriboe, and Mahershala Ali. The feature film was also the winner of the Film Festival for “Best Cinematography.”
David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter says:
“Rooted in an authentic sense of place….its silky blend of lyricism with urban grit marks it as a promising debut.”
About the film:
In Justin Tipping’s feature debut Kicks, nothing is as simple as it seems. Fifteen-year-old Brandon longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy; assuming that merely having them on his feet will help him escape the reality of being poor, neglected by the opposite sex and picked on by everyone — even his best friends. Working hard to get them, he soon finds that the titular shoes have instead made him a target after they are promptly snatched by local hood, Flaco. Seemingly the embodiment of menace, Flaco harbors complexities of his own that will be revealed when Brandon goes on a mission to retrieve his stolen sneakers with his two best friends in tow.
Boasting a strong ensemble cast and featuring a memorable lead performance by newcomer Jahking Guillory, the film transcends a deceptively traditional hero’s journey to deliver an entertaining and sobering look at the realities of inner-city life, the concept of manhood and the fetishization of sneaker culture. Visually and thematically rich, with an amazing soundtrack of both hip-hop classics and Bay Area favorites, Kicks creates an authentic and original portrait of a young man drowning in the expectations of machismo.
Peep the trailer above.
