"The Other Kid From Akron"

Kofi: Made In Akron

About the Film


Akron is known for creating the best of the best in all facets of life. From the industrial renaissance of the rubber tire industry, to 3x NBA Champion LeBron James, and Grammy Award-winning band “The Black Keys”, greatness is simply born in Akron. 

Now a new name has emerged on the music scene--Kofi Boakye. 

Greatness takes skill. Greatness takes talent. Greatness takes tenacity, determination, will-power, and self- motivation. And that’s Kofi Boakye. 

This documentary film takes an introspective look into the life of musical prodigy Kofi Boakye from growing up in the inner cities of Akron, Ohio to being one of the most highly recruited teen musicians in the nation.
