Member
The former third member Silas is focussing on his solo material right now. On the 1999 album "Time Waits For No One" a fourth member is present as well named Kadesh.

Stop The Violence
The duo also worries about young people and streetviolence: Every year an increasing number of youths are "hanging out" with nothing to do. The result has been an increase in violence, drugs and crime among our youth population. The Royal Priesthood have come to try to counteract the negative influences affecting our youth by putting on a free hip hop concert providing counselling, education, positive direction, and alternative methods of resolving issues affecting their lives via music. We act to reverse the trends towards increasing overt acts of youth violence now, in order to save young lives and to prevent adult violence in the future.

Tools
Education and awareness is the first important step and the key to offering and developing practical working solutions in addressing the social issues and concerns regarding the continuous increase in youth violence. With today's youth receiving positive messages through music, counselling and literature, society as a whole will benefit. It is our duty to do what we can.

The Purposes of the Royal Priesthood is to:
A. Provide free counselling services to youths and their parents.

B. Produce pamphlets and literature with a message of an anti-violence,
anti-crime and anti-drug lifestyle and distribute such materials directly to youths through Royal Priesthood volunteers, the school system, youth organizations, probation officers and other organizations which assist youths.

C. Produce educational music compact discs and educational music videos with a message of an anti-violence, anti-crime and anti-drug lifestyle and distribute such materials directly to youths and youth organisations, as well as promoting broadcasting of the material.

D. Establish an educational website on the Internet providing a message of an anti violence, anti-crime and anti-drug lifestyle, and information on how to access counsellors and obtain pamphlets and literature.

Contents
From the director of the ground breaking Royal priesthood video "Gods Army" and "Stop the Violence", Femi Iloyi’s latest film, Broken Silence, focuses on the painful reality that are children have to go through. It is the first installment in a trilogy of films documenting troubled teens who feel their voices are never heard.
Broken Silence follows the journeys of three boys struggling with themselves as young people and with the pressures of life. From selling guns to the effects on their physical and mental health to wrestling with their darkest spiritual fears, Broken Silence delivers a chilling portrait of a community in crisis. With an unflinching eye the film captures their stories over a 5 day period. It takes enormous courage to face these demons, and even more to allow the world to watch.
