Biography

Born and raised in Selhurst, South London, David Kiaku AKA Faith D, has been rapping since the age of 13 years old. Being influenced by school friends he began to be involved in gangs & music. His lyrics contained negativity which gave him the impression that if he did this, he would be respected by his friends.

David was teased in school a lot because of his effort to join the gang but his passion for music was arising. His friends would always tell him “You’re rubbish and your content is poor” and some would say, “You’re good” just to encourage and motivate him. However he never gave up his passion to make it to the mainstream, so he decided to find a studio and start his solo career. He recorded a track with Master G called “It aint enough” sampled by producer Solemn (Spida Productions).

In 2005 an incident occurred where it involved David nearly being stabbed for his phone by gang members. After 6months of fear due to court cases and a constant reminder of a threat that was told at knife point, David’s perception about life changed him so he decided to take church serious. The more he attended, the more he realized that if he doesn’t fix up, he may lose his life. In July 2006 David became a committed Christian and has been ever since.

There has been a major transformation in the way he carries himself, and in the way he lives. This change has led him to leave the gang life and to live a life that is right. He had left the friends that had influenced him to do bad things, and David’s music was taken to a new direction and from then doors have been opening. That is when the stage name Faith D came into the scene because of his beliefs.

In 2007-2008 things started to kick off and Faith D went on to perform at the prestigious Fairfield halls in front of 200 plus people and he has also performed at different church and various other community events. The fire he brings on stage is amazing and you can really see his passion. He has also shared the same stage with UK’s well known Gospel artists Guvna B, Simply Andy, Inkrease, JayEss, Ejiro and many more. To better his career Faith D took on advice from 2007 MOBO Award Winner Jahaziel.

Lyrics

Hands in the air

Written By: Faith D Feat. Jason Nicholson-Porter

VERSE 1

Here I go with another one (another one)
New tune summer time (summer time)
Blast it in your car,
Open window, man listen to his rhyme (no lie)
I just can’t help it,
Gotta keep flowing waves, (loving it)
Never stop eating but I’m not (hating it)
Pass me the bread, (never get tired of it)
(Oww) it’s all about the kingdom,
Press next?!! listen to my reason,
Season, we pump it out
Full blast to the max, here in the crowd (jump)
I’m bless (I’m bless)
Not stressed (no stressed)
Just hyped ( oh man)
No threats (no threat)
Keep it nice
Summer time
Put your hands in the air
Let’s sing...

Chorus

Lift your hands in the air, the summer time is here,
Lift your hands in the air, for the right season is here,
Lift your hands in the air, the summer time is here,
Lift your hands in the air, for the right season is here,

Bridge

Summer Time....(lift your hands)
In your car.... (lift your hands)
Wanna ride.... (lift your hands)
Get funky.... (lift your hands)

VERSE 2

Here I go with the second one (second one)
Verse, yeah he’s first (he’s first)
Let’s go to the next height,
Take the next right, to road that says life,
(Yeah) we gotta keep driving,
Till we signs posts flyers,
Turn the next page, can’t be tired, (wake up)
Excuses, pop like tyres
(shhh HANDS IN THE AIR)
Jump to beat man don’t be late (ahh)
Hands in the air like you just don’t care (what)
Wave them, bless them, gotta look fresh (fresh)
Airwaves (ahh) I died to my flesh.......

I’m saved (right) I’m safe, (home).......
I’m found, no tears.........

Chorus

Lift your hands in the air, the summer time is here,
Lift your hands in the air, for the right season is here,
Lift your hands in the air, the summer time is here,
Lift your hands in the air, for the right season is here,
