Novelist (real name Kojo Kankam) has been dubbed the ‘Poster Boy of Grime’, and continues to go from strength to strength as he develops his reputation as a MC.
After years of local shows at youth clubs and MC freestyles on YouTube, Novelist found his way onto radio stations such as Flex FM, Rinse FM and Reprezent which gave him the platform to reach a wider audience. At 17, Nov went on his first tour outside of the UK and was nominated for a MOBO Award in the Best Act of Grime Category. Developing as a Grime artist, Novelist was invited to feature on a track with Chase and Status where together they gave us the famous track Bigger Man Sound. At 18, he featured on Skepta’s award-winning Konichiwa album, and was then invited to play his own stage at Glastonbury which was loved by the crowd.
More recently he has begun to develop himself as a standalone artist, doing fewer collaborations, with this gig being a result of this decision.
