The singer and song writer who started singing at age four, and at age seven discovered his talent after he wowed everyone in church when he sang in the Children’s day Celebration. He however entered the music world officially in 2016, when he formed a crew with Ix, a.k.a ‘Rebel’ after which they did a song together. He later got signed to LMM record label. His stage name was initially ex-kid, but when his heart got broken down by a fufu-seller he loved, he took up the name ice-kid and decided to make it popular. Growing up taught him so much about life, which made him decide to take a name related to his birth name through the inspiration of his soft bed and a new friend (the girl crushing on him), and that was how the name FRANCISONGZ came about. His latest Singles ‘MARYKATE‘ was inspired by a 300L accountancy student called ‘Marykate, and his friend IX. His other songs include : Lollipop (the song which brought him to limelight), Do something, and others.
He was in a relationship with a Yoruba girl in the same school where he is studying but however due to some personal issues decided to take a break and less i forget, he is currently crushing on a girl named Uche ‘the unknown’.

Locally, he looks up to Psquare, Tecknoi, Skales, Burnaboy, Ric Hissani and Runtown. Internationally, he looks up to ; Usher, Chris Brown and The Weekend. His inspiration to sing however comes from the love he has for the beauty of creation, crazy beats and his present condition.
