Kojo Anim is a comedian who made the final in Series 13 of Britain's Got Talent. He originated from Ghana, however moved to London. When he entered the stage, Alesha greeted him, with Kojo explaining 'I've known Alesha for many years'. He also revealed that he used to act as support for young comedians, and an opening act for other comedians, however he 'wanted something for himself'.

In his audition, he made jokes about his African parents, as well as having a lack of money and going to the bank, incorporating a piece referring to the metres in black cabs. He also had a piece about his father and Ribena so he had to stop playing with his friend, he also met a homeless person asking if he could give him 20p for something to eat, his response was 'You know where to eat for 20p, I'm coming with you, I bought dinner for the both of us!' Alesha remarked 'my respect level has just gone way up there, my friend', with Simon adding 'I don't really like comedians on this show, but I loved you', pressing his Golden Buzzer. After his audition on 15th April 2019 he appeared upon an episode of ITV Daytime show 'Lorraine'.

His semi final performance saw a majority judges vote send him to the final after the act saw him speak about wanting to go to a party, and his dad finally delivering, he also came home late. He also joked about practicing his sick voice in the bathroom for so long that he forgot what his excuse was, he later changed his excuse to an ankle injury, as to which most probably confused his boss as he sounded unwell yet he had stated that he had an ankle injury. He also wanted his son when he went to school to have fun games like kiss chase like he had when he was in school, 'pretty girls like Amanda and Alesha they had pace! Then there were girls like David and Simon who would always fall over by accident!'

Upon reaching the final Kojo came fourth. He joked about organising transport back from an airport and his friend not delivering, fortunately a mutual friend was there to help. He joked about messy houses and finally about his church most notably 'I asked my pastor if he could change a £10 note, he said God will change your life!'
