“Ghana’s finest” Jools Holland on K.O.G. Kweku Sackey aka K.O.G (Kweku of Ghana) is a multi-dimensional creative force - a singer, rapper, percussionist, arranger and bandleader. His euphoric afro-fusion sound, shamanistic live performances and fierce patois rap style has seen him join the likes of Thundercat, Femi Kuti and Fatman Scoop on stage.
Now based in Sheffield, Sackey leads the hi-life / hip-hop / funk collective K.O.G. & The Zongo Brigade. He also fronts Onipa, the afro-futurist project led by Tom Excell from Nubiyan Twist, a band with whom he has collaborated extensively, including on their 2021 hit, If I Know. Don’t miss a high-octane performance from an inimitable artist.
