Favour Etuk, also known as Kaptain, is from Akwa Ibom but was born and raised in Benin, Edo state, Nigeria.
Kaptain is an entertainer who began his career as a dancer while still in secondary school and advanced into the movie industry as a movie actor in PAN AFRICA GROUP, where they made several videos and uploaded them to YouTube.
He recorded his first song in 2012. Prior to that, all he had done was sing someone else’s song and freestyle to some beats until he met a producer named SUNSHINE who loved his styles and supported him in training his voice and using his rap skills.
Kaptain is a motivational singer who is also capable of performing other types of music (Dance hall, Party songs, Love songs, etc). His music is a one-of-a-kind fusion of afrobeat, pop, and rap. He is currently signed to ZAZA EMPIRE RECORDS. His manager INFINITY, who brought light into his life, has made a significant contribution to his music career.
He revealed that he doesn’t have a name for his style of music, which is why we labeled it unique. “Well, that is a little difficult because I haven’t really decided on a name yet, but I think I’ll do it.”
For the time being, my music is a better version of the Falz and LIL KESH styles.” He stated.
Life and his mentors Falz, Erigga, Lil Kesh, and Yung 6ix influenced him. He went through a lot just to get his music noticed. He began at shows where he was sometimes denied the opportunity to perform, was embarrassed, and was not supported until he met his helpers.
