With his internationally crafted sound, Toronto-based Shopé is bringing a unique energy to the global musicscape. The 2019 CBC Searchlight winner was born and raised in Lagos, but later immigrated with his family to Toronto. No stranger to the classic immigrant struggle, the Nigerian-Canadian's personal and musical narratives weave a tale of poverty, determination, love, and faith, while skillfully blending Nigerian Afrobeats, with North American Hip Hop/R&B. The product, aptly called Afrofusion, is an infection mix of equal parts rhythm & melody that is honest and vulnerable, yet bold and confident. Thus, Shopé is setting himself apart as a one-to-watch international artist, bridging Western & African cultures, and in so doing, empowering those in the African diaspora and beyond.
