Caziah Franklin is the youngest child of American gospel icon, Kirk Franklin and his wife Tammy Franklin. It’s been a few years since the multiple-time Grammy winner’s son Caziah started following in his father’s footsteps. Starting as a teenager, Caz has established himself as a promising local musician, away from his dad’s spotlight.
Individually, he is an independent musician, songwriter, and producer who specializes in Exaltation from Artistry. But does the son of an urban contemporary artist have his own story to tell; career or otherwise. How much has he made a name for himself?
Also considering his age, what’s his take on dating and finding a love interest. Know all these along with all the other dynamics that define his relationship with his father, sisters, and the rest of his family members in the content that is to follow.
Caziah Franklin’s Relation With His Father, Kirk Franklin, And Mother, Tammy Franklin
Caziah’s pop needs no introduction while, on the contrary, what many people don’t know is that his mother was also in an R&B group in her early twenties. Accordingly, the 20-year-old credits his genes to his interest in music.
He also thanks his parents for making him believe in faith from an early age. Kirk and Tammy’s son admits there was that untold pressure on him due to his father’s legacy.
“These were the thoughts I had on a daily basis, and although I knew that they were lies from the enemy, I believed them,” said the young adult in an interview with Voyage Dallas in May 2019.
Back in June 2018, Kirk through his Insta revealed his sister, also Caz’s aunt had received 30 years in prison. While the choir director didn’t tell the rest of the story, he, though, wrote,
“My sister was just sentenced to 30 years in prison. I now feel the weight of wondering if I could’ve done more.”
Although not confirmed, reports say that she was convicted for her involvement in drug trafficking. His half-brother, Kerrion Franklin, who had a rough moment with his father back in March 2021, is an author, producer, and cinematographer. He also happens to be in music and runs his own video-making company, Vimeo.
Carrington Franklin, Caziah’s half-sister lives with her husband, Maxx Nakwaasah in Dallas and works in branding and marketing. His older sister, Kennedy was a member of the Baylor University co-ed cheerleading team. She also influences her fans with fitness and fashion talks.

Caz and Pitts are yet to share a detailed narration of their feelings toward each other. In fact, it wasn’t until June 2021, that the pair chose to present the other on their respective Insta handles.
Pitts uploaded a picture of herself posing by the side of Kirk’s youngest child somewhere in West Monroe, Louisiana. Subsequently, the image came with a caption, “him,” and a white heart emoji.
