History: (Avengers VII#12 (fb)) - Kofi managed his small bar in Timbuktu as the Gorilla-Man began accruing a tab. When the Black Panther arrived at the bar to speak with Gorilla-Man, Kofi cleaned a glass while the two spoke. Curious if the Black Panther had come to kill him, Gorilla-Man warned that his death would transform the killer into a talking gorilla like himself and asked Black Panther if he knew how much beer it took to get a gorilla blackout drunk, further informing Kofi to keep the beers coming. When Black Panther offered Gorilla-Man a job, Kofi chose that moment to remind Gorilla-Man about his tab. Gorilla-Man responded by telling Kofi to send the bill to Tony Stark, as he was an Avenger now, but Black Panther commented that he didn't want Gorilla-Man for the Avengers.

Kofi's height & weight were impossible to approximate, as he was only ever seen standing up while characters whose height & weight had been officially determined were sitting. There was no good angle to determine what Kofi's height & weight might be in relation to either Black Panther or Gorilla-Man. Additionally, his eye color was impossible to determine, as he was seen either squinting or his eyes were colored as black dots instead of actual colors.
