Most of all, he was generous with his giving and loved his fans beyond measure. This album X couldn’t wait for his fans all around the world to hear and show just how much he valued each and every single person that supported him unconditionally,” Said the producer
The 12year old Sonova is seeking to follow her father’s footsteps in the hip hop world.
True to her word, on April 9th during a memorial for her late father she performed her own version of “Slippin”.
With well laid lyrics she lightened faces during the emotional service that brought together who’s who in the Hip hop fraternity.
“I am growing, I am learning, to hold my head up. My daddy’s still holding my hand, so I gotta stand up. I learned so much from my father… He taught me to be strong, but it’s okay to be afraid because sometimes it will show you how to be brave,” she rapped to the amusement of the congregants.
The young Sonovah revealed to the press recently that she has been tasked with featuring on two collaborations on her late father’s eighth studio album.
She is already causing ripples with her two singles ‘I Hate Zoom’ which highlights her displeasure with virtual learning orchestrated by the Corona pandemic and ‘Tick Tock Kid’.
She affirmed of having received his father’s blessing of becoming a rapper while also disclosing her favourite song from him.
“My favourite song of his is ‘Party Up-Up In Here’, He was happy when I told him i wanted to rap” She said.
Legends truly live forever
