With his internationally crafted sound, Toronto-based, 2019 CBC Searchlight winner Shopé, is bringing a unique energy to the global musicscape. No stranger to the classic immigrant struggle, originally born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, his personal and musical narratives weave a tale of poverty, determination, love, and faith. Shopé’s unique sound skillfully blends elements of Nigerian Afrobeats, with North American Hip Hop/R&B. The product, aptly called Afrofusion, is an infectious mix of equal parts rhythm & melody that is honest, and vulnerable, yet bold and confident.
As he masterfully bridges western & African cultures, Shopé continues to win global fans, to the tune of almost 4M streams and 70,000 social media followers.
