Speaking during a chat on the Zero Conditions podcast, the 19-year-old said his parents granted him and his siblings the free will to choose any religion they wish to practice.

The singer also revealed that apart from his father, his elder sister and younger brother are Muslims while the other family members are Christians.

Khaid said; “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.

“Right from time I didn’t like going to the mosque actually. My dad forced me. But my parents were free minded people.

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

“At that time I was trying to please him so I was going to mosque. But after some time, I switched and started going to church. My elder sister and younger brother are Muslims. But me and the rest of the five are Christians.”
