downloadThe British Academy Children’s Awards took place earlier this week in London, celebrating the very best in children’s film, television, games and online media of the past year and the talent behind their successes. Hollywood golden child 12 year old Kwesi Boakye is the voice of Darwin Watterson on “The Amazing World of Gumball”, a brand new International show on Cartoon Network which combines 2D and 3D animation in a live-action setting, and follows the misadventures of 12-year old Gumball and his innocent, naive brother Darwin.

Kwesi’s character Darwin used to be the family pet until he sprouted legs and became one of the Watterson’s. In an interview with Daniel Lennard, executive producer and vice president of original development,Cartoon Network said “In terms of favorite characters, Darwin is probably my favorite. He’s really cute (amazing job by the actor Kwesi Boakye!) and full of surprising talents… in one episode he starts yodeling”

The freshman animated series received its international debut in May, and has since rewarded Turner Broadcasting /Cartoon Network with its first of the prestigious children’s BAFTA awards for the network. Kwesi was ecstatic to receive news that the “The Amazing World of Gumball” would be taking home the honors of Best Animated Show and Best Writing. Kwesi said “I’m soooo happy and excited. I knew the show was in London but I didn’t know how much the kids loved it. I’ve always worked on adult shows, so to have kids my age love our show is awesome!” The BAFTA kids vote competition powered by Yahoo attracted over 400,000 votes from 7-14 year-olds in the UK.

This isn’t the first time Kwesi has been a part of an amazing cast, earlier this year TNT’s original sitcom “Men of a Certain Age” received a major prestige boost by making the Peabody list. The Peabody Awards recognize excellence and meritorious work by radio and television. This was TNT’s first Peabody victory since 2002; “Men of a Certain Age” received ace reviews from TV critics as well. The Network released a statement about how proud they are to be a part of “Men of a Certain Age” for two seasons. The show has featured great storytelling and impeccable performances by its very talented cast.’

Kwesi has made a huge name for himself starring in blockbuster films such as Disney’s “The Princess and The Frog”, Tyler Perry’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself”, and has also lent his incredible talent to many top rated television shows including “Men of a Certain Age”, “The Mentalist”, “Hawaii Five-O”, “Southland”, “Community”, “Hawthorne”, “Day Break”, “The Shield” and many more.

2012 already holds great promise for young Kwesi with Tinsel Town buzzing over two of his upcoming projects. His anticipated performance in the films “Unconditional” which also stars Michael Ealy and “Lives of the Saints” where he plays hip-hop mogul’s Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s son. Also a budding philanthropist, Kwesi recently lent his name and creative talents to the “Nextaid” foundation and donated 100% of his interest to the charity. In Kwesi’s words, “Healing the world one good act at a time makes us live in a better place.” So keep your eyes on show business’s next great actor whose heart may be the only thing bigger than his amazing talent.
