Coast based Susumila has revealed that he named his son after Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho.
The singer and his wife welcomed their son in October 2019.
In a recent interview, the singer revealed that he named his son after the governor because he sees him as a father.
“my son is three months old and i have named him after Governor Joho. I have known joho for a very long time and he has been like a dad to me. My dad passed away and Joho ndiye baba niliyebaki naye duniani” he said
In a previous interview with Ghetto Radio the singer opened up on how the governor has also helped his music career.
“The Governor has really helped us a lot. Personally I can’t tell you for sure he has helped me financially and there are still other projects we are working on. My video for ‘Warembo’ featuring LavaLava was sponsored by the governor. We spent over a Million for the video and I did not contribute a coin. He also sponsored Masauti’s song ‘Dondosha’ featuring Lavalava. In fact any time you hear the phrase 001 in a song just know that he sponsored the works in that particular music.” He said
