[Concert Review] Kojey Radical ‘sold out’ at KOKO

It’s a Tuesday night in Camden and KOKO is ready, the musicians take to the stage, and the only word to describe the atmosphere is ‘GASSED’ for the final night of his tour. Kojey Radical runs onto the stage to give a performance of a lifetime and he did not fail to deliver…

Hailing from East London, Kojey Radical does not conform to any specific genre, he is a UK rapper, a poet, a performer, a grime artist, and a singer. The authenticity of his artistry cannot be denied. His conscious lyrics, with dynamic, afrocentric and ‘radical’ themes inspire change and hope to his fixated listeners. Kojey and his team managed to create an incredible live show that juxtaposed sombre spoken word interludes with outbursts of grime flows.

Continually, It was the passion and the energy of the musicians that danced around the stage with him, that brought originality to the show. The rhythm of the drums, the electric guitar solos, and the sound effects of the keys produced a true work of art and a music experience that went beyond just a rapper performing his songs on stage. Wretch 32, Ghetts and Etta Bond were just 3 of the surprise guests that took to the stage to make the night unforgettable for anyone who was there.

Finally, this visual masterpiece and the electric atmosphere created through genuine and real interaction with the fans, has lead me to believe that this is just the beginning for Kojey Radical.
