Welcome to Jumamo

We are happy to welcome Safin De Coque

He is the son of Nigerian Highlife Legend, Late Chief Dr. Oliver De Coque. He is a songwriter and performing artiste. He hails from Umudiala, Ezinifite, Nnewi South, Anambra State.

My dad was so proud of me because I was his only son that showed interest in music at the time. Although dad advised me to go into highlife, but I let him understand that hip-hop is my passion.

My dad influence me. I wouldn’t want my dad’s Highlife legacy to die and that was one of the reasons I remixed one of my father’s most popular songs, “identity.” I added some hip-hop flavours to “Biri Kambiri” to modernize it.

To me, the best thing with music i that it changed my story; it changed my life. Like when my dad died, I felt really pained, so much in pain. I had to go back to my dad’s music archive to listen to his songs and immediately, I felt he was talking to me. I think this is a big privilege because many of my mates lost their father and can’t even see his photographs, but here I am being able to hear my dad’s voice over and over again. That means a lot to me.
