Kojey Radical Unveils ‘Water’ Visual Featuring Mahalia

London rapper and poet Kojey Radical combines his latest musical releases in his first visual release of the year, in the form of a short film titled Water. The captivating nine-minute visual, directed by MOS Popular Human, started off with an introduction from Michaela Coel, followed by “If Only,” then his latest single titled “Water” which features rising Birmingham singer-songwriter Mahalia. The clip showcases the depth of Kojey’s artistic vision, as well as a strong view of his exploration of issues like gender roles.

The visual was released alongside the following statement from Kojey: “I was luckily enough to be raised by a family of strong females – Craig, my director, also – and we wanted to make a visual that was heavy on representation not only just for women but also to create and elaborate on conversations on black masculinity.”

Kojey Radical has also shared plans for a full UK tour, which kicks-off in Ireland on November 12, 2018. On the tour dates, the artist says: “I’ve been dreaming of this tour for quite sometime because it gives me the chance to really connect with new supports and take them on this journey with me. I’ve always said I wanted to retire as one of the greatest live performers of all time. This is a window into that legacy.”

Wizkid – Come Closer (Official Video) ft. Drake

Wizkid has officially released the official visuals to his latest collaborative song with Drake, titled “Come Closer.” As stated previously, the summertime tune is the pair’s first official joint effort since their record-breaking chart topper “One Dance,” which reached 1 billion plays on Spotify.

The crisp Daps-directed video, sees the original Starboy performing against different African inspired geometric backdrops, alongside some beautiful melanin women donning African-inspired attires and make-up. Drizzy was no nowhere to be found in the video, and social media, especially Wizkid’s fans aren’t having any of that, and they’ve gone as far as calling him all kinds of names out of anger. Drake was on his “Boy Meets World Tour” in the UK, during the shooting of the video, so this could be one reason he couldn’t feature on the video, or there could be more to this that we don’t know about.
