Dupe Ige Kachi, who is popularly called IGE (pronounced ee-gay), is an all-round performer. She has been singing since she was seven years old. Born into a family of singers, church musicians and lovers of the arts; she has always appreciated all forms of music and dance, from classical to jazz and R&B. She honed her art in the several singing groups and choirs of the various Anglican churches that she attended as the child of a clergyman.
Ige’s singing style could be described as soulful Rhythm and Blues with an eclectic blend of classical, jazz and contemporary gospel flavour. Her uniquely distinctive velvety voice serenades your soul, granting you an inevitable savoury experience. Ige is adjudged the most prolific soprano voice to come out of Nigeria considering her unique ability to weave through both classical and contemporary genres of music in a dynamic manner. Little wonder her admirers call her “Golden Voice”.
