Born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother, his formative years were shaped by a dual exposure to both Islam and Christianity.

In a recent episode of the Zero Conditions podcast, Khaid shared his personal experience, stating, “I was a Muslim before because my dad was a Muslim and my mum was a Christian. So, I just felt the connection to Christianity more.”

The young artist went on to explain that, from an early age, he harbored a dislike for attending the mosque, expressing that his father had compelled him to go when he was younger.

He elaborated on his upbringing, saying, “Right from the beginning, I didn’t like going to the mosque actually. My dad forced me. But my parents were free-minded people.”

He continued, “They told my siblings and I that we can choose any religion we want. But we live among Muslims, and my dad didn’t want it to seem like he didn’t have control over his children, so he used to force me to go to the mosque.”

Khaid admitted that, during that period, he went to the mosque to please his father. However, over time, he made a personal decision to switch to attending church services.
