(MultiKraft Hype) - POPE

Born Michael Egube in Benin City, Pope spent his early years at oil-rich Warri before moving to Lagos. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of influences including Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, The Fugees, Jay-Z and Fela; he started music at an early age, learning to play the keyboard in primary school. He later added the drums and bass guitar to his repertoire, as well as what would ultimately become his foremost skill: rap. By 2006, Pope had become a respected name on the underground hip-hop scene in Nigeria, where he cut his teeth on numerous underground mixtapes while honing his signature melody-driven rap sound, eventually getting the attention of Cackland Music, his current label home. With new singles just released and his debut album slated for release later in the year, Pope is poised to take the entertainment industry in Africa by storm
