When Kofi first started his WWE run, he was billed from Jamaica and had a reggae-inspired entrance theme. However, as Ghana progressed in the FIFA World Cup in 2014, WWE played off of Kofi’s Ghanaian ancestry. So where is he from? The truth is that Kofi was born in Ghana, but was raised in Massachusetts when his parents immigrated to the U.S. The reason why he was billed from Jamaica was because of Kofi was simply a fan of reggae music, particularly Damian Marley.

Kofi credits his training in the martial art Capoeira for his kick-based offense in the ring. Capoeira requires a lot of agility in order to take out opponents with various spin kicks while distracting them with flips.

Other well-known Kowalski students include Chyna, Eddie Edwards, Damien Sandow, and Triple H.
