Born in the late nineties to a Ghanaian father and a Dutch mother, Lion Kojo always found himself on the peripheries. Whether listening to his father’s collection of Reggae and African records, or his mother’s Western pop music, an immediate affection with the sonic arts was the result. So growing up in Utrecht, surrounded by his parents’ diverse musical backgrounds, eventually culminated in a musical palate that cannot easily be denominated.
Playing a wide variety of genres ranging from Hip-Hop, R&B, Soul, Funk, Highlife, and everything in between, Lion tries to incorporate his roots into each one of his DJ sets. This concept can best be recognized in his own club night KOMBO and his ongoing radio show at Operator Radio. The Amsterdam based DJ now roams from club to club, armed with an extensive arsenal of bangers, smooth selections and a good sense of music; ready to get everybody involved and enjoying the party. Currently, Lion Kojo carries residencies at Bassline, BBQ and FAMIRIE.
