It is now common to have most celebrities in Ghana and in West Africa, update their fans on happenings in their lives.
These happenings would be memories of marriage, dating, child birth, and daily updates on their itinerary. By this, it is much easier for a fan to follow the life of his or her favourite celebrity closely on social media.
Many fans have seen the likes of Mzbel, Caroline Sampson, Majid Michel, Bervely Afaglo, Pascal Amanfo and Reggie Rockstone sharing photos of their children. While some stars enjoy the attention it brings, some have conspicuously kept their children out of the media eye for their own reasons. One of such is footballer Asamoah Gyan, who had kept his family (wife and children) hidden from the media eye till pictures of his family went viral a couple of weeks ago. Also Nadia Buari is determined to keep her twins from the media eye as she only posts little details about them.
For whatever their reasons are to either make photos of their children private or make them public, their fans do not have a choice than to respect that, after all one’s love for a personality as a fan will not wane down due to the fact that personality decided to hid their children from the cameras.
Since the beginning of this year. The media and fans of some personalities have been blessed with pictures of their adorable children. Not only are the children adorable, they get to make the news at that little age.
We first start off with actor Adjetey Annan who took to instagram to share adorable photos of his son. The shy actor in his post thanked God for the life of his little son who is the blessing of his marriage to Elorm after over 7 years of marriage.
Adjetey Anang also known as Pusher from the popular TV series Things We Do for Love and wife, Elorm welcomed a baby boy into their family about a year ago. Pusher and his wife tied the knot about eight years ago after they met on the set of Things We Do For Love.
Adjetey is known for his role in movies including Deadly Voyage, A Sting in a Tale, The Perfect Picture and others. He has also featured in a Dutch movie titled slavery.
Next on the list is Marvin record queen, Tiwa Savage, who put to bed last year. The singer shared the experience of having a son and narrated how his son picked up calling daddy rather than calling mama first with her fans on Instagram while posting his pictures.
Her post read “Good Morning yummy mummies as most people are starting their day, we’ve probably been up for a few hours now as babies know how to interrupt our beauty sleep but that’s ok because we love them more than anything. Anyhow Jamil is 6 months now and this morning I thought I heard him trying to say DaDa, Ahhhhh! I just quickly started saying MaMa MaMa MaMa before my husband heard, I mean I carried you for how many months, you come resemble your papa, now you wan come say daddy name first.Rara o, I go do ojoro LOL… but all jokes apart every new stage with your baby is so amazing, from first smile to first words to first steps. What was your babies first words?’
Also self-acclaimed dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale had photos of his all grown up son trending on social media. The six months old baby boy, named Majesty is all grown now and his father won’t give his fans a breathing space about how handsome his son is and how he had changed his life.
The self-proclaimed dancehall king has always stated in interviews that the birth of his son changed him and even apologized to his nemesis Samini, saying the baby inspired him to do so.
“I wouldn’t lie about it, anytime I look at him (the baby), I feel some vibration and all I hear him say is that daddy don’t worry just make peace with them and everything will be fine,” he said at the time.
Last is nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke, who also shared adorable photos of her son Maxwell Idahosa.
The post on Stephanie’s website, Stephanie daily, mentioned the name of the little prince as Maxwell Enosata Linus. The post further praised God for bundle of joy for the family and attributed the joy to the glory of God. Stephanie in her post added that the family is happy to share their bundle of joy to the world.
“The same God that did it for us will do it for you” – just say it and it will happen!, the post added.
The post appreciated all for being there for the family and for the kind words and encouragement. Stephanie Okereke Linus and her husband Linus Idahosa welcomed Maxwell, about three months ago.
