Changing ceiling fan from fan plus light kit to just fan. Cap off hot wire?

Current ceiling fan consists of fan plus a light.

We want to install a new ceiling fan that has NO light.

Do I just cap off the wires that run to the light portion of our current fan?

Or is there a better approach?

Want to make sure this is safe.

Thanks in advance!
