Julius James is popularly known as Fresh Caps, and he’s a Nigerian singer, songwriter, rapper and dancer who says that his life is “musical to the max.” Fair enough. That vibrancy and energy certainly comes across in songs like “Birthday,” which is a joyful musical demand for attention. The blend of cultures is glorious here, James’ voice smooth and rich when singing, gleefully packed with attitude where rapping. The beats aren’t particularly original, the melodies aren’t going to raise any roofs. But the love that James clearly has for his craft shoes through. He’s a talented chap, and there’s enough here to suggest that we’re going to hear a lot more from him.
