Talented family produces 3 young musical Kings: Khaliyl, Kieyen & Kaeydan

Our friends at ukgospel.com recently wrote: 3 Kings‘ pedigree is impeccable. Their parents are Femi ‘Smooflow‘ and Roucheon Iloyi, who’ve been around music for nearly two decades, starting out as Royal Priesthood, then being part of the influential Zion Noiz collective along the way, and pretty much holding it down in what I’ll loosely describe as the conscious Hip-Hop category.

These boys are no strangers to international fame, though (yes, international fame. You might remember Kieyen as the precocious 2-year old – yes, two – whose natural aptitude for vocal cadence meant rapping came ridiculously easily and earned him a spot on Ellen, while his older brother Khaliyl is the youngest rapper to appear on Charlie Sloth’s BBC Hip-Hop show)

Don’t take my word for it; you get to see (and hear) it all recapped in ‘I Am A King’ – I think you’ll like it.

With Khaliyl, Kieyen & Kaeydan as the youngest response to previous article Young Artists, Where Are They? we take this opportunity to thank all the parents who nurture and encourage creative talent in their children. The future looks bright indeed!

If you know of any teenage artists; singers, rappers, poets or instrumentalists, please get in touch. There is a platform here for them as we do our part to support youth talent.

Word out is that Kieyen and Khaliyl will be releasing their first single into the mainstream featuring Mega Man of So Solid. Can’t wait to hear!
