Koyza is one of those enigmatic characters that you might have heard of if you’ve hung around in Brixton for long enough. Maybe you’ve seen his name splashed in graffiti next to Loughborough Junction rail station, or maybe you’ve been waiting for a train and heard thunderous deep basslines emanating from somewhere that you just can’t quite pinpoint. He is all around in Brixton, embedded in the community but elusive like a phantom.
It takes a person of real wisdom to fully appreciate the way that Koyza’s strong standpoints in life and political outlook are woven implicitly in to his songwriting. You won’t find any clues from him face to face, you have to find it in his music.
