Singer/songwriter HIGHCAP may be new to the music scene, but his debut single, ‘Shade’ demonstrates he has the lyrical and vocal prowess of a well-seasoned artist who received constant support from major music tastemakers.
On his first ever offering to the world, the 20 year-old newcomer seductively croons over his love interest on a sensual blend of Afro pop/R&B with dancehall undertones.
Born and bred in Nigeria’s capital (Lagos), HighCap (whose real name is SUNNY IDOKO) is the baby of a large family, who initially took an interest in maths and science. From the age of 16, the young prodigy suddenly diverted his passion to music, proclaiming that music found him. From that point, HighCap never looked back.
Being brought up as a devout Christian, HighCap joined his local church choir, which immensely helped him to further hone his craft as a musician. Citing the likes of Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson and Jon Bellion as his main source of inspiration, HighCap has developed his trademark of R&B, pop with the smooth and mesmeric sounds of the Motherland, that’s arguably on par with Afrobeats contemporaries, such as DAVDIO, Joeboy and Adekunle Gold.
HighCap took the leap and entered Nigeria’s DE SETUP NAIJA TALENT SHOW back in 2021, gracing the judges with his irresistibly smooth vocals: https://youtu.be/XFaxnGgj6to. His performance paid off as HighCap earned a well-deserved second place in the competition.
Ready to take his place on the international stage, HighCap presents his debut single, ‘Shade’, out today across various music platforms.
