PROJECTS

Events production and marketing, LSE
(2019 - 2021)

Kojo is a communications and events officer at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). 

Through working at LSE's Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa he has produced dozens of online and offline events for audiences of thousands across the globe.


Notable events include:

LSE Festival - Sarah Ladipo Manyika, and Margaret Busby

Bastion

(2017 - 2020)

In 2017, Kojo launched Bastion, an arts-centered collective and community.

The purpose of Bastion was borne out of a recognition that as young creatives, many of us work in isolation and lack the network, or know-how, to help push us to the next level.

 

Bastion hosted events and a shared online platform to address these issues, providing a space for creatives to meet, collaborate and exhibit their work.

Pen-Ting Poetry

(2017 - 2019)

Kojo formerly produced and hosted Pen-Ting Poetry, a monthly spoken word, hip-hop, and political open mic night in central London. 

This event sold out for 11 out of 12 shows Kojo produced, and was booked to produce shows at festivals across the UK.

Accountability Group (2018 - 2019)

Kojo launched an accountability group in 2018 where 14 members would set personal or professional goals which other members would hold them accountable for achieving. ​

 

Members would attend fortnightly Skype meetings with the wider group, and regularly meet up to work on projects together over brunch. These meetings offered the opportunity for the group to provide each other moral support, update on recent developments, and share lessons.​ ​

Accountability Co-Op

Everyone's a Critic

(2018)

Everyone's a Critic, was a one off event Kojo produced, where people from across London could meet up to "praise, analyse or simply talk sh*t about"; TV, movies and music. ​Kojo started this because he was personally looking for a space to have these discussions. ​ It was through social media and the type of discussions he would have offline, that he learnt there was a demand for this space.

This event was free to access and all the available spaces were booked.

Social club

Outliers X

(2017 - 2018)

The podcast where outlandish thoughts run rampant.

On Outliers X, Kojo along with co-hosts Miki Jesuloba and Phalinda Tavia discussed a random topic with a rotating guest every fortnight.​

Outliers X formed in 2017 when Kojo approached Miki with the idea to create a platform where the two could talk publicly about philosophy, pop culture, and nerd-life. Later the platform garnered over 3000 plays and hundreds of followers, the podcast embraced outlandish ideas and fringe culture.
