The 35-year-old professional wrestler was born to a Jamaican mother and a Ghanaian father. Kofi Kingston made his debut appearance in WWE 11 years ago and has over the years become one of the most favorite wrestlers in the history of the game which was officially launched in 1963.

In fact, Kofi’s participation in the title match at WrestleMania was a clear case of fans demanding his inclusion when he lost out at the Elimination Chamber match for the WWE title booking.

It was Mustafa Ali who was supposed to meet Daniel Bryan to battle out for the world champion but fans agitation for Kofi Kingston forced the company to make last meet changes which eventually gave Kofi Kingston the chance to battle for the title.
