Khaid DIVERSITY EP Download
After his first two singles, Suleimon Shekoni Abiola, popularly known as Khaid, explored the world of Afrobeats, Pop, Amapiano and Trap sounds on his 6-track new EP.
Khaid’s affinity for rhythms and melodies served as a bedrock upon which he explored depth of his soul to express everyday life, telling a story of love, heartbreak, and his past life.
Reflecting on focus track “FIRE”, Khaid says: “It’s a song I wrote for men to appreciate women. To remember that the woman you don’t appreciate is the same to set another man on fire. So hold your woman good.”
DIVERSITY is the result of an 18-month-long artist development scheme—during which Khaid progressed as a songwriter, live performer and fine art enthusiast.
The EP shows how I lived in the past while diversifying into different genres of music,” says Khaid. “Each of us is made up of many parts—discover them all and enjoy the diversity.”
Over six tracks, he blends the freedom of trap with local influences, and straddles the booming bass and heaving drums of amapiano as he reflects on his streetwise upbringing.
