Skepta who took to social media today to share photos from an ultrasound session, announced that he is having a baby.
Though he never revealed who his baby mama is, however fans are wondering if Naomi Campbell who the 35-year-old British-Nigerian rapper had been linked to, is the mother of the baby. The ultrasound photo he shared reads ‘Baby Adenuga’, and is dated 30 July which suggests that the pregnancy is in the third trimester.
The news however left his female fans heartbroken. Here are some comments on the post;
The fashion icon, Naomi Campbell, 48, and grime god, Skepta, 35, became the hot topic on everyone’s lips back in March when they appeared topless on the cover of British GQ together. Unless you live under a rock or decided to take a social media break, you’ll remember just how cosy the rumoured couple looked in the photos, with Naomi sporting a huge smile as Skepta leaned in for a kiss — it was all very steamy.
And to add extra fuel to the fire, the issue of the magazine just so happened to be titled “Race, Sex, Love and Power: When Naomi met Skepta.” If that doesn’t sound like a couple confirming their relationship to the word in a very Beyoncé revealing her pregnancy-esque way, then I don’t know what is.
Well, let’s go back to the beginning. Romance rumours first surfaced after they were reportedly introduced at the British Fashion Awards in November 2016, according to W magazine. The pair made a huge first impression on each other from the very get go. Skepta, whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga, opened up about it during his interview with GQ: “She was like a bullet. She was just going and going and going, and everyone just has to, like, catch up.”
Three months later, Naomi and Skepta were then spotted together at the V05 NME Awards in February 2017, according to NME. They were also rumoured to be “getting cosy” at not one but two parties at Paris Fashion Week a few weeks after that, according to the MailOnline.
Fast-forward to June 2017, Skepta spoke publicly about Campbell for the first time. During an interview with Vogue about his debut clothing line, Mains, conversation somehow turned to the model and he was full of admiration He said: “It’s an obvious one, but Naomi Campbell is my favourite cover girl. She broke down boundaries by doing those early Vogue covers. Shout out to all the beautiful ladies.”
