Born Felix Bikai but setting the music world alight with the acronym Bikai is the D.C born Cameroonian whose brand of music is set to take over your earlobes. His shimmery energetic voice brings a contagious melody to his sounds influenced by his Central African roots and his Washington D.C upbringing.
Music began for Bikai while working in the corporate world and a co-worker was singing ‘I told him to sing the song again. When he stopped singing I just free styled the rest of the song and he loved it.’ That was how his music journey started inevitably. His earliest musical influences include Michel Jackson, Petit Pays , Koffi Olomide. Sam Cooke, and R Kelly , . ‘I love their songs, words and how they get peoples attention with their words.’
For Bikai, music is all about how he feels or how the beat makes him feel and he describes his kind of music as African with a pop vibe, hip hop, R&B. Bikai would love to work with P-square Davido,Wizkid ,Aka ,Casper Nyovest and many more. Bikai is currently working on his forthcoming EP. “I’m gone get you guys moving and dancing music you can relate to’ he said, a solemn promise he steady works at keeping by turning out dope tunes in the studios.
Bikai’s latest single “Sextacular” from his upcoming EP, (set to release in Fall 2017) is currently making waves as the hot, new anthem of the summer. Produced by Chris Irvin aka J. Bruster, “Sextacular” showcases Bikai’s distinct sound and superstar appeal. From the moment you hear the beat drop, the song leaves you feigning for more of Bikai’s smooth, feel good croons.
As a songwriter and music artist, Bikai is inspired by his surroundings. Much like Sextacular, most of the songs he creates are based on situations that he or those around him have encountered. He has also got the video of ‘African lady’ shot in Cameroon set drop this summer. “People inspire me and the music I make depends on how I feel in the moment. Afro-Pop, Hip Hop, whatever sound captures my attention, I deliver”, says Bikai.
