Augustine Kiawu, a creative, skilled and talented Christian artist (also known as Lyrico) who was born and raised in Liberia, on the West Coast of Africa, has launched of his new Gospel Record Company. Dubbed as ‘KNG Gospel Kingdom,’ this independent record company was founded by Lyrico in conjunction with his wife, Julie G Kiawu. It is noteworthy to mention that KNG Gospel Kingdom has marketed, promoted, distributed and is currently a partner with major record companies like MPRE, Sony Music Group, and The Orchard Distribution.
Having served some time in jail as a result of his arrest for crime related activities, which could have left him behind bars for 40 years, Augustine’s life changed for the better thereafter. While in prison, Lyrico had a divine encounter with the Lord God Almighty, and this singular event altered the course of his life positively.
In the vision, he was instructed to surrender his life totality to Jesus Christ, and his victory would be obvious to all. As God would have it, all charges against him were dropped, and he was set free. His life took a completely new turn, and found a fresh meaning and purpose in life. It was to this end that Lyrico was able to come up with the idea of establishing his own Gospel Record Company.
Presently living in Philadelphia, and serving as a true minister/upcoming Pastor of the Gospel of GOD Almighty through Jesus Christ, Lyrico said; “I am absolutely delighted about the launch of my Gospel Record Company. KNG GOSPEL KINGDOM consists of a Gospel Label (Divine Record), a Production Label (Lyrico Ent.), a Music Publishing (The Kiawu’s Music, BMI, The Ghoson’s Music ASCAP), Artist Development, and many more.”
Lyrico has also released his first EP as a gospel artist on his own indie record label, KNG Music Group/Divine Record during the month of April. The EP has been tagged “I.S.M – I AM SENT ME”.
