Novelist

Kopparberg Stage


Once dubbed ‘The Poster Boy of Grime’, Novelist (real name Kojo Kankam) has gone from strength to strength while developing his reputation as a respected MC.

After years of local shows at youth clubs and MC freestyles on YouTube, Nov soon found his way onto radio stations such as Flex FM, Rinse FM and Reprezent which allowed him the platform to reach a wider audience and develop his fan base.

With no let-up in pace, Nov had teamed up with producer Mumdance and put out his first EP under the XL label. It was an exciting hybrid as Mumdance is an established Electro producer and this was the first crossover collaboration of its kind.

“Novelist” was now firmly on the radar and earmarked as an emerging artist to look out for when chosen to be on the BBC’s Sounds Of 2015 list. Still aged just 17, Novelist was invited to feature on a track with Chase and Status and together they gave us the famous track Bigger Man Sound.

In more recent times, Nov has focused more on developing himself as a standalone artist, choosing to do fewer collaborations, but not before giving us another crossover track produced by Tom Misch. The song Physical demonstrated another dimension to Nov’s extensive breadth as an artist.
