With an extraordinary musical heritage, Kojo was raised on music; his mother being legendary soul singer PP Arnold & father being a bassist for Crosby Stills & Nash.

He soon began playing keyboards and took a keen interest in music production: “Growing up around so many amazing musicians and artists, I tried to learn as much as I could from whoever would teach me”. Having gained extensive musical knowledge throughout his childhood, at 18 he began working as a freelance producer and within a few years was working with numerous major label artists.

After 10 years of producing, songwriting and re-mixing, Kojo (originally from the US) briefly returned to pursue various production opportunities, including working on music for TV and Film. Upon returning to the UK, he toured with UK pop icons Sugababes, ultimately becoming their Music Director. His passion, discipline and artistic ability in this new role were quickly recognized as offers to work with other artists increased exponentially.

Over the past decade Kojo has consistently worked with chart-topping artists, creating dynamic shows and performances world-wide. Whether it’s MD’ing Stormzy’s remarkable Glastonbury 2019 show, multiple sold out tours with Jess Glynne or developing exciting shows for new artists, Kojo Samuel is without a doubt one of the most sought after, reputable and talented MDs in the UK.
