Rapper, Wale welcomes a baby girl
American Nigerian rapper, Wale, welcomes a baby girl at the wee hour of today. The rapper, who has established a strong link with his native country by collaborating with Nigerian artists, broke the news on his social media pages.
Wale had to cancel a performance in Brooklyn on Friday night, July 22nd because his girlfriend Chloe gave birth to a baby girl early that morning in a hospital in New York after 72 hours of labour.
He was scheduled to take the stage at the Barclays Center for ‘One Africa Music Fest’.
Wale’s daughter’s name has been announced and it is Zyla Moon Oluwakemi.
Wale wrote on his istagram page
Overjoyed . I keep the most important things in my life so far away from people because I’m sensitive . Quite possibly too sensitive to even be in this business nevertheless I spoke on the downward spiral that ensued after complications with my previous child… For that reason I kept this very private as I prayed every day to receive this blessing . Thank You to all my friends so many , Iman/Teyana . Draya and O.Mel and Robyn. Finn Balor Neil Lawi. Bryson, Kehlani WizardEd.. So many ppl that stayed up wit me and talked me thru such a sensitive subject … I named my album SHiNE when I knew my babygirl was on the way …I want to be a better man than I ever been. I’m so flawed I’m so imperfect and the world knows it… I just want to honestly be the best version of myself I can be.. My focus is renewed I’m infinitely in love with my princess and I truly appreciate all the love you have shown her and how understanding many people who knew were .imma keep workin on me and pray to God I can design a young princess who flourishes to an absolute queen ..
