Artist Bio…

“Born and raised in East London, British Ghanaian Kwadwo Adu Genfi Amponsah aka. Kojey Radical is often described as a “renaissance man”. His family always knew Kojey was destined for something big, but they were never sure what. This level of confidence in him, he says, is a pressure that drove him to pursue his versatile range of talents.

A firmly mixed media artist, since childhood Kojey’s interests and accolades have existed in everything from drawing to dancing, film-directing, fashion and spoken word. He ended up studying illustration at university, while exploring the world of poetry simultaneously, inspired by emerging young black poets such as Suli Breaks.

2018’s series of ‘If Only’, ‘’97’ and ‘Water’ propelled him into the mainstream. A testament to his multidisciplinary approach to art, all these have come alongside an ongoing series of impressive visuals created and co-directed with long-time collaborator, Most Popular Human – most notable of these is the mesmerising 9-minute short film WATER (IF ONLY THEY KNEW) with narration from Michaela Coel.

Kojey’s work doesn’t really slot into one category: at his explosive live show you’ll be immersed in a dynamic blend of everything from smooth rap to gruff soul to propulsive rock to searing grime, all interjected with pensive moments of spoken word from the poet-turned-musical artist.”
