Nigger Kojak (aka Kojak or Papa Kojak, b. Floyd Anthony Perch, 30 September 1959, Kingston, Jamaica) is a reggae deejay and singer.
Perch began his career under the name Pretty Boy Floyd, deejaying on various sound systems. Taking inspiration from Telly Savalas' TV character, Kojak, Perch changed his stage name to Nigger Kojak, shaving his head and often appearing with Kojak's signature lollipop. He had a local hit with his debut single, "Massacre", and after featuring on Dennis Brown's "Ain't That Loving You" single with "Hole In De Bucket", along with a female singer, as Kojak and Liza, many of his subsequent releases would be combinations with "Liza", although there were at least two female singers who joined him under that name (Beverly Brown and Jacqueline Boland), including the debut Showcase album. Kojak was one of a number of deejays who shifted the emphasis from 'cultural' chants to pure 1980s dancehall chat. The success of Kojak and Liza led to the track "Nice Up Jamaica" (actually a Perch solo outing, on the "Real Rock" rhythm) being endorsed by the Jamaican tourist board.
Perch set up his own label, also called Nigger Kojak, releasing records by artists including Delton Screechie, 1983 saw a second album, with Rock Jack Kojak, recorded live at Prince Jammy's studio.
Perch resurfaced in 1996 as a singer, releasing an album of soul cover versions under his real name on the Mouthpiece record label.
