Essence 2017: Kofi Siriboe brings ‘Queen Sugar’ stars with him to Sheraton Hotel afterparty (100 Photos)July 1, 2017
It didn’t take long for the word to spread that Kofi Siriboe, star of OWN’s #1 Rated TV Show Queen Sugar would be showing up for a meet and greet afterparty at the Sheraton Hotel. Women from all over the city came out to party with DJ SNS, and D Nice after the first night of Essence features at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
Kofi didn’t waste any time when he entered the room. He went from person to person, hugging, smiling, and snapping pictures with everyone. He was very personal and friendly. All of his “Ralph Angels” waited impatiently for him to arrive but when he entered they all felt it was worth the wait. He even brought along several cast members from the TV show with him.
This event was unique though. A portion of the proceeds from this event went to support two students from New Orleans who will be attending HBCU’s this Fall. It’s one of the reasons Kofi was interested in supporting the event. Promoter, Sean Chapman told Black Boot, “parties are great but giving back to our kids is even greater”.
Here are highlights from the event.
