Putting behind him his legal faceoff with former record label, Chocolate City, Ara singer, Olawale Ashimi (or Brymo) welcomed a baby boy with his long time girlfriend, Esse Kakada, whom he calls Ayanfe (meaning chosen one).
Excitedly announcing his good news on January 24, 2015, he posted a photo of her with a protruding baby bump on his instagram page with the caption, ‘We gonna have a baby, I am gonna be a daddy!!!! Singing’.
She delivered a baby boy in March 27, 2015, and the star crooner named the new born, Olanrewaju (or simply Waju).
In a chat with ENCOMIUM Weekly days after she put to bed, the singer gushed, “I was stunned when I laid eyes on him”. On how it feels to be a father, he said: “It feels great, very exciting. I just might have a future president birthed to me, I am really happy.”
What was your reaction when you received the good news?
I was elated, I was stunned when I laid eyes on him and then the smiles and all the emotions. It’s a beautiful sight that you are to be responsible for another soul.
While your Ayanfe (lover) was in labour, what was going through your mind?
I was there the whole time, drove her to the hospital myself. I only expected the good news. I knew she was ready and strong enough. More important, I am grateful that everything went according to our wishes.
As he grows, what are those things you would pass onto him?
I would pass on to him all the things my father passed on to me. I am looking forward to our time together.
