In some really YUMMY news!

Atlanta-based rapper, T.I. has handpicked American-born-Nigerian actor, Rotimi Akinosho to be the new face of his clothing line AKOO!

Grammy award winning artist, music and film producer, song writer and actor, T.I. had this to say about the talented African artist:

“I’m very excited about working with Rotimi. The young man has a bright future and I am proud to be connected to his growing success. It’s young men like him who I had in mind when creating AKOO.”

The breakout talent of “BOSS,” a STARZ original series, channels the mysterious allure and boyish charm of his on-screen alter ego to depict AKOO’s Spring/Summer theme of “effortless cool.”

Rotimi, who is a singer, is also an actor on Golden Globe winning TV series Boss and a graduate from Northwestern University. Named by Rolling Out Magazine as “Hollywood’s Next Triple Threat,” the actor, singer/song writer and model is leading a new era of game changers.

Born in Maplewood, New Jersey to Nigerian parents, Rotimi says he got his work ethic & discipline from being raised by African parents. True! True! My momma don’t play….

Jeff Belizaire, Director of Marketing & Public Relations of AKOO Clothing commented:

“Rotimi is the perfect choice for this season’s campaign. He is a rare talent who embodies AKOO’s mantra of self mastery as he continuously strives for excellence in his artistry,”
