I had fitted a camera above the built-in wardrobe in our children's room. There was a socket behind the drawers. I could just remove the drawer to plug it in, but there was only enough room to slide the wire up the six inches or so behind the next drawer up that had a back on it so I couldn't feed it up one drawer at a time. With no coat hanger to fish down the back, how did I get the wire up the back of the wardrobe? There were no gaps on the sides.

The whole project will just fall in to place.

Just using the one drawer slot you already opened, let the power cord dangle down from the camera on top letting gravity help you out. Reach in through the slot, grab the cord, and plug it in.

Visualizing your process, my guess is that you

Removed all of the drawers first, wired it up, then replaced all of the drawers.
