Born and raised in East London, British Ghanaian Kwadwo Adu Genfi Amponsah aka Kojey Radical is often described as a “renaissance man”. At 29 years old, he is at the forefront of a generation of young British artists who have pushed underground Black music into the mainstream over the last few years through a series of acclaimed, ambitious EPs and collaborations with the likes of Mahalia, Loyle Carner, Ghetts, Shy FX, AJ Tracey, Swindle, Wretch32 and MJ Cole.
Currently gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated debut album Reason To Smile, Kojey Radical embodies everything that makes an artist truly exciting in 2022; he’s an authentic and uncompromising creative force, constantly evolving and blurring boundaries as he moves from rap, funk, spoken word and poetry to fashion, art and film with an almost effortless fluidity.
Ahead of his hotly-anticipated album release on 4 March, join Kojey Radical in conversation with Darryl Yankah as they discuss Kojey’s artistic journey, and how his cultural life has shaped his own personal wellbeing and development as one of the UK’s most exciting artists. The conversation will be followed by an audience Q&A.
