17-year-old Afro-trap artist, and first Neville Records signee – KHAID, releases his debut single, “With You” distributed by Platoon. 

“With You” takes listeners on a journey to KHAID’s early experience of love. He describes how he had genuine love for a girl who consistently gave him a hard time. Despite all the pain she had put him through, he didn’t like her any less but genuinely wanted to be with her.

“My music is unique. I’ve birthed a new sound for my generation and I’m excited to finally share my work with the world,” expresses KHAID. 

Following the announcement last week by entertainment powerhouse, comedian and actor, Sydney Talker, of his newly launched record label – Neville Records, and signing of KHAID, he shares: “You can expect to experience musical diversity from KHAID’s music. His music is transcultural as it can be enjoyed by a cosmopolitan audience. You can also expect from KHAID what I call musical spirituality – music that connects to the soul.

You’d understand what I’m saying if you’ve ever listened to a song that changed or lifted your mood or spirit. His music will heal souls and uplift spirits. In a continent like Africa where there are numerous problems, I believe KHAID’s music will inspire young people towards achieving greatness.”
