Why I date older women - Khaid (Video)



By Taiwo Okanlawon

Nigerian singer Sulaimon Shekoni Solomon, better known as Khaid, has revealed that most of the women he has dated are older than him.

The 19-year-old singer disclosed this while featuring as a guest in the latest episode of the Spill With Phyna podcast, hosted by reality star Josephina Ijeoma Otabor, popularly known as Phyna.

“Most of the females I’ve been with are older than me and they don’t really have an issue with it,” he said.

Khaid said older women are more “experienced and respectful,” stressing that they are not bossy, contrary to social stereotypes.

According to him, cheating is a dealbreaker.

“If a lady cheats on me, the relationship is over,” the singer added.

Khaid, who is now signed to comedian, Sydney Talker’s imprint, Neville Records, in a recent interview with PUNCH, reflected on his childhood, growing up in a family of eight children in the Ojo area of Lagos State.

His father, a tailor, and his mother, a teacher and hairstylist, played a significant role in shaping his early influences.

The family’s diverse musical tastes, ranging from fuji music to Michael Jackson, laid the foundation for Khaid’s musical journey.

Khaid disclosed that his foray into music began during his secondary school years, sparked by his participation in an annual rap competition.

His exposure to foreign music, particularly through Michael Jackson, ignited a passion for trap music, eventually leading him to create trap songs of his own.

Despite his musical aspirations, Khaid initially ventured into various street hustles, including stints as a mechanic, painter, and barber.

He explained that the fear of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) initially deterred him from pursuing a university education after completing secondary school.

The turning point in Khaid‘s life came when Sydney Talker, now a close friend and family member, reached out to him on Instagram.
