Artist and producer Kokayi has placed five songs in the forthcoming feature film ‘Laugh at My Pain” featuring actor/comedian Kevin Hart.
Los Angeles based Levels Music Group collaborated with Kokayi on securing his original music for Hart’s new stand-up comedy film which documents the comedian’s 2-day performance at the Nokia Theatre in L.A., raw and uncut, plus backstage footage, and includes a trip back to Hart’s hometown of Philadelphia.
According to Kokayi, Levels Music Group Partner Dylan Berry contacted Kokayi to submit music for the film.
‘I submitted several songs including instrumentals and tracks from my last two albums “Mass Instructions’ and Robots & Dinosaurs” states Kokayi.
The film’s producers chose five of Kokayi’s songs which Levels Music Group edited into the film securing Kokayi’s first placement in a major feature film. Kokayi has previously placed music for Nickelodeon and BET Networks.
“Laugh at My Pain” debuts exclusively at AMC Theaters on September 9th, 2011. Kevin Hart’s 2011 LAUGH AT MY PAIN tour is one of the most successful Comedy Concerts in history that broke Eddie Murphy’s long standing record of being the first African-American Comedian to surpass over $1.1 million two-day live Comedy show ticket sales.
