The Krypitc Kids are a group of three 17 years old boys, Akinsulie Kehinde (Brief Cabana), Kolajo John Adefiola (Sexy Jay)& Anifowoshe Michael Temitayo (Mizzle)
They are the rookies behind the ‘most anticipated’ mixtape at the moment titled ‘M.W.A.K (My Ways Are Kryptic)’
The group consists of two rappers and a singer, their style of music #Jambo (happy music) has been widely accepted by fans..
For them it started ‘like play like play’ when the boys performed in front of their peers back then, messing around & recording on their laptop after school.. This later led them to beleiving in themselves and what they could achieve with their talent… It gradually developed from being a hobby to being a ‘dream chase’.
Towards the end of 2011, krptic kids signed a label deal with ‘Rosey Records’ and since then they have gained more attention,publicity & experience and even performing alongside industry giants like: Tiwa Savage, Lynxx, Sauce Kid,Mo’cheddah,Davido,Orezi,Dammy Krane n co.. They have also rocked the stage on many notable events like: Dynamix pre-party, Lynxx and friends tour, unilag graduation dinners etc…
You would definately not be wrong referring to them as the ‘three musketeers of music’..
Believe me.. These upcoming youngsters would be an inevitable part of the future of Nigerian music..
