In the video for Midnight Flower, Kojaque came up with the idea of an audio visual piece in which he dunks his head under water for the almost three minutes of the track, whilst trying not losing the rhythm of the lyrics and with his face reflecting his growing anguish due to lack of oxygen. This tense performance is a simple and perfect reflection of the universe of an artist who is used to social conditions that even make breathing difficult, delivered in jazzy and traditional hip hop, reminiscent of the one that Mike “The Streets” Skinner used to cook up and which has pushed him onto the New Musical Express list of essential new artists for 2019.
