Kojaque ended his Uk and Ireland tour with a sold out show in The Academy, Dublin.
Dublin's soft Boy community fled to the Academy last night to witness the final show of Kojaque's five date tour. Support act and fellow Soft Boy, Luka Palm, took to the stage at 8:15. Having opened for Slowthai in both London and Dublin, Luka knows how to fill a room with energy. 'Love it how you rocked up in them sweats like Jenny from the block', the crowd sang along as Luka Palm played some of his crowd favourites, 'San Pelly' and 'Pink Lady'.
Kojaque kicked off his show with the opening song of his 'Deli Daydreams' album, 'White Noise'. The powerful tune encapsulates the struggles and tribulations that exist in modern day Dublin. The opening song ended with an extended applause from his appreciative audience. Sporting an apron, white beanie and ice-cream printed soft boy tee, Kojaque stuck to the theme of his conceptual album, 'Deli Daydreams'. Two giant plastic ice-cream cones and a mixing desk that doubled as your local deli counter graced the stage.
Kean Kavanagh, Soft Boy Records co-founder came out from behind his deli counter to sing lead-vocal on Kojaque's most popular song, 'Eviction Notice'. The two pals shared a glass of wine and ended the crowd favourite with a loving embrace. The musical connection and supportive brotherly bond that the Soft Boy duo share, was witnessed by all.
Kojaque then brought the energy up by welcoming Luka Palm back on stage to perform 'Politicksis' and new song, 'Date Night'. The 'Date Night' music video, which took many months to create was released on November 16th. The Dublin rappers passed out red roses to lucky fans in the audience for the duration of the song. This resulted in Kojaque crowd surfing over the mosh pit. Kojaque ended the electric night by thanking his friends, Soft Boy family and of course, his proud Mam who was watching from the balcony.
