Kojo Funds announces today that he will be heading on the road for his first ever UK tour. The tour kicks off on October 1ST at Birmingham’s 02 Institute and will run over 7 days, finishing up at London’s esteemed 02 Forum Kentish Town on October 9th.

The 02 pre-sale will be starting at 10am on Wednesday 22nd August 2018 and the tour goes on general sale at 10am on Friday 24th August 2018. Tickets will be available here: The announcement comes straight off the back of Kojo announcing his first official mixtape ‘Golden Boy’ which will be released on 28th September via Atlantic Records.

Since coining the term Afro-swing, Kojo Funds has been the driving force of the music now heralded as the sound of UK black diaspora. He first made waves with 2016 release, ‘Dun Talking’, which was the first video on the GRM Daily to reach 10 million views, and has since dropped instantaneous underground hits like 'Warning', 'My 9ine' and ‘Fine Wine'. Kojo has already sold well over 2 million singles in the UK alone, including the platinum-selling, ‘Finder Keepers’, with Mabel.

Golden Boy is out 28th September via Atlantic Records.
