He was studying business at Forest Hill when he met his tragic death.
Kwame had moved from Ghana to London 10 years ago with his father Dr Ofosu-Asare.
His grieving daddy described Kwame as a budding footballer, actor and musician who recently met England footballer Rio Ferdinand and posted a photograph with the Manchester United and England star on Facebook.
He said: “Kwame was a boy with multifaceted talents. He was the kind of person who was well focused and worked very hard. He was ambitious and wanted to achieve many things at a time. The world was his oyster.”
