Kofi Siriboe confirmed that he is actually dating Sudanese supermodel, Duckie Thot. Fans couldn’t help but be shocked that the heartthrob is officially off the market.
Siriboe took to Instagram on Internal Women’s Day Thursday, March 8, to shout out none other than a special message for his girlfriend. He gushed about Duckie Thot and compared her to flowers and a sunrise and said she’s so great no man could ever live up to the goodness she deserves.
my love, you blossom like the flowers do; you keep growing. i love watching you. you remind me of sunrise every morning—just a glance in your direction transmutes the darkest day to light. no man should be lucky enough to love you. all queens, everywhere, happy #internationalwomensday A post shared by KOFI (@kofisiriboe) on Mar 8, 2018 at 9:11pm PST

Siriboe has been getting attention from the ladies ever since made his debut on OWN’s Queen Sugar series in 2016. He also starred as a love interest in the popular movie Girls Trip that hit theaters last summer.
He has never steered away from saluting African-American women in interviews.
“My love of Black women comes with a responsibility,” said Siriboe in an interview. “How am I actually going to transition that into work and rehabilitation for Black women? It’s not just a good topic. It’s not a cool headline. I actually have some real things I’m putting into place that represent that conversation that I think is necessary.”
For now, he’s starring in Ava Duvernay’s show on Oprah Winfrey’s network. He’s pointed out that it's a win-win.
