Kofi Kingston Profiled In BBC's 'Focus On Africa' Magazine

I like Leslie Goffe's article (it was well-written, honest, and lacked the usual condescending tone, which is often reserved for the sport), which focuses on how the new Intercontinental champion's parents not only feel about his career choice, but also on Kingston's (false) claim to have been born in Jamaica (which, as he's explained to his mother, is just for business purposes).

I can't vouch for the legitimacy of this claim, but According to Goffe, Kingston has prohibited members of his family from talking to the media, because his Mom actually revealed that her son was born in Ghana (which he was).
