[K]ojo Funds is a hitmaker with a social conscience. Amongst the multi-million-player bangers in his catalogue sits his latest release “Stallin'”. It boasts the same infectious hooks, and afrobeats influenced production of his radio-ready hits, but it has a deeper message.
The video opens with a powerful maxim: “We all want power but you’re most powerful when you choose your choices. You have everything to win but you only have yourself to lose.” On Instagram, Kojo credits the statement grime spokesman Wretch 32. It’s aimed at the “young ones…the ones with something very great and positive ahead of them.”
It’s advice that the artist once took himself, quitting the road for the booth after a chance encounter at a friend’s party. Four years later, he’s taking over the scene.
