The King’s Daughter Glory Kings is an upcoming award winning gospel artist. We caught up with her recently…. JP: Give us a brief snap shot of your childhood. GK: I grew up with my Grandparents who looked after me growing up and I must say part of what I learnt from them and the discipline I received helped to shape the Glory Kings we see today. JP: Your background/career GK: I am from a very humble background. I was brought up by my loving grandparents who I lived with. They taught me a lot of things. My grandmother used to take me to the farm with her. I learnt how to fetch firewood for cooking and water from the stream. I am a professional Nurse. JP: How did you start singing? GK: I started singing quite young in my home Church Choir (Celebration Chapel) I have been in a choir since. JP: What inspired you to start Glory Kings Music? GK: Well, the inspiration behind starting a solo career in Music wasn't actually planned. I would say it's divine. While I was still in Nigeria, serving in the choir in my local church, there were a couple of prophesies - God wanted me to be sing or him. I didn't understand at the time that it meant as a gospel artist. JASMINE'S PLACE 23
