Actor Kofi Siriboe to Mix Education, Entertainment and Tech With New Media Company

The endless downtime thanks to the pandemic has given Kofi Siriboe time to realize a new business venture, We’re Not Kids Anymore. According to Shadow & Act, the “Queen Sugar” star will soon launch the media and lifestyle platform that will illuminate and reflect on the cultural resets that helped shaped Black culture and the world. “I was sitting home like we all were and all of the ideas and all of the things that crossed my heart and mind in the last five years came to the surface and We’re Not Kids Anymore really stood out,” he said. “We’re always looking ahead and creating new things as we move, but I just think it’s important to reflect and actually appreciate and find value in the experiences that shaped us to this moment.” Siriboe describes We’re Not Kids Anymore as a “network of nostalgia.” Alongside tech partner Julian Lane, he’s creating a space to celebrate time.
