LIL Kesh net worth, Cars, Family And more
Starting off as a musician, were your parent in support of that? My case is different because my Father is a Christian and I grew up in a very gospel family as my father has his own church and there I had music to enjoy from my parents; because music was all around me and that also informed the creative side of me. Despite the fact that my parents are good Christians, they are always in support of what their children are willing to do and more importantly they preach the gospel of education too. My parents will give their blessings as long as you are on the right course; they are my number one fans and have always supported my music from the onset.
