Though most gospel artistes shun partnering with secular musicians, ‘Gospel General’ Hope Kid has hinted at a collabo with an artiste from ‘the other side’.
The Kayole-born and raised artiste said he has never partnered with a secular artiste on any of his songs, adding that he will only the step when God leads him in that direction.
“I want to do secular music soon after a revelation from God. I believe that, in all things, you should be led by God,” he said.
Revealing that he used to rap with fellow Kayole bred artist, Khaligraph, Hope Kid said that he is looking forward to working with Papa Jones.
“The Bible says that if we don’t praise God, the stones will. Why should I wait for stones to praise God when Jones can?” Hope Kid posed.
Though most Kenyans know him for his dancehall tracks, Hope Kid said that he actually started out as a rapper.
He made the switch to dancehall after high school, under the tutelage of veteran singer turned pastor, Mr Googz.
Hope Kid explained that Mr Googz has been instrumental in his spiritual growth, adding that he has also coached him musically.
