When did you first get into music?
I was always into music as it helped me deal with a lot growing up but i started making music at the age of 19. So about 4 and half years ago.
Where did your name 'Koko Lé Darko' come from?
The name Koko Lé Darko derives from my mothers surname. So I basically took her surname and G-mixed it, and because it derives from her, I know that it'll bring good fortune & blessings because my mother is an amazing woman.
What has influenced you and your music?
Honestly I'm just a huge fan of music so I can say all the predecessors in rap, rnb, bashment & afrobeats. They have all in someway helped shape or influence my music, as well as African culture and also black British culture, living and growing in London. All of those aspects have a part to play.
What was the inspiration behind 'Treasure'?
Okay so the inspiration behind treasure was my Mrs primarily, she is my treasure, but also the idea of relationships and the many levels and emotions within them. The complexity of love.
Who are your musical inspirations?
I feel like most things I listened to when I was younger definitely inspired me musically but to pin point a few... I'd have to say Tupac, Vybz Kartel, Akon, Beyoncé and Giggs.
Koko Le Darko will be dropping his next project later in the year titled Life In Colour.
