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.”
