Marvel and Black Panther Celebrate King of Trainers Afropunk Style

Last night the 16 Million followers deep Marvel Instagram account, Marvel Studios and official Black Panther accounts posted up a dual picture slide of UK sneaker influencer King of Trainers ( Franklin Boateng ) and Instagram user @s1mnicity from the We are Parable screening of Black Panther held at the British Film Institute last month. King of Trainers was dressed up in traditional Ghanaian attire with a crown, in tribute to the African themes represented in the film. This is a huge success for the Ghanaian businessman and sneaker influencer to be projected to a worldwide audience, for representing his true identity and roots and we should all be proud that such an influential platform is watching the UK scene for its social media inspiration. Express yourselves and continue to create memories that can be shared with the world.
