‘Kingdom Kid’ (Francis Johnson-Beke) is one of the UK’s dynamic, up and coming Christian Artists with a relevant gospel message set to inspire and get you dancing.

His first EP, ‘VIP FOR LIFE’ released in December 2015 has been a great success with good airplay on various radio stations including Premier Christian Radio and Premier Gospel.

‘VIP FOR LIFE’ is a seven track EP which addresses the important topics of Vision, Identity and Prayer for Life hence the title ‘VIP FOR LIFE’. Kingdom Kid strongly believes that his music on this EP will speak to anyone from any walk of life as the topics are relevant to all generations.

One of the tracks from the EP ‘VIP FOR LIFE’ was voted as ‘track of the week’ within a few weeks of the release on Premier Gospel and Premier Radio, leading to a resounding buzz concerning all the tracks on the EP.

Kingdom Kid sees it as his life’s purpose to bring the gospel to his generation in various, relevant ways. He aims to connect people to God through his music, while also speaking at times to challenge, encourage and inspire them to believe and walk in God’s purpose for their lives.

Kingdom Kid has an eclectic, personal taste in music ranging from hip hop, gospel, rap, grime, RnB to pop, classical and old school 1960’s-1990’s music. The music he produces is wide ranging, but is mainly in the bracket of rap (rap worship), grime, pop and RnB all with the gospel or uplifting message.

Kingdom Kid was once part of a gospel group called ‘Open Gate Crew’ which released a couple of tracks as part of a compilation called ‘PHAT N HEAVY’. After this, Kingdom Kid took a break from music and qualified as a youth worker with a BA (Hons) in Youth Ministry but was inspired by God to continue with making music that blesses Him and other people.

Kingdom Kid has a passion for all people to know the Lord; especially young people so that they can serve the Lord in the prime of their lives as the Lord would have it.

Recording music videos as well as touring and releasing more music are part of the next stage for Kingdom Kid on his musical journey as God inspires him to come up with more songs to bless Him and His creation.
