Ko “Big Syze” Kposowa

Promoter, Agent, Photographer
LoKoLife Events Founder and Blockz Magazine Brand Ambassador

“KO”, otherwise known as Big Syze, started off with the rap trio then turned duo ‘Hydro’ alongside DJ Smoke and Jerrod P.I. Cooper while majoring in Business Administration at Morgan State University. It was from the experience of performing, touring, and being a face in the DMV nightlife, that former manager and well known entertainment lawyer, Donnell McNeal continued to work with Syze and DJ Smoke in the field of entertainment promotions and management. Syze continued to take things further by learning “the game” via other popular promoters and teams in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area. Hosting happy hours, nightclub promotions and organizing events became a regular function for him in the DMV; however the strongest suit became acquiring sponsorships for events and performance shows. The sponsorships have been from local companies and businesses as well as national brands.

Big Syze now works alongside partner Rae Hopkins in regards to artist development and celebrity booking and is still known to throw parties and events with Celsius Promotions in Baltimore, MD. It was during this time that he formed LoKoLife Events and branded this name when assisting or directing events and sponsorships.

Eventually Big Syze expanded his ventures to out of state promotions and shows in New York, Philladelphia, Virginia Beach, Richmond, and Miami. Syze is also brand ambassador to Blockz Magazine; an online and print publication that continues to build more and more followers in interest of hip hop music, news, and urban lifestyle. Blockzmagazine.com won the Urban Vision Award in 2013 for best new online media site. Through the publication Syze began assisting with photography and video of famous celebrities. In regards to media, Syze has also done vocals for radio ads (Radio One), and has formed good relationships with Radio One, Clear Channel, and Morgan State Radio. Recently Syze and his partners have also been in the works with deals for major movie castings and T.V. networks.
