DaniLeigh Hints That DaBaby Is The Father Of Her Child

DaBaby may be da father.

After much speculation, DaniLeigh has seemingly revealed that DaBaby is the father of her child. The pregnant singer showed off her baby bump in a series of new photos, but it was the hashtag that raised eyebrows.

“#dabiggest,” she wrote along with a white heart emoji.

Fans were quick to notice that it was the same hashtag DaBaby used just days earlier while promoting his new video for “Giving What It’s Supposed to Give.” The troubled rapper has not addressed the speculation that he is the father.

Earlier this month, DaniLeigh announced that she was pregnant with her first child, sharing a slideshow of stunning photos from her maternity shoot.

The rapper, 29, and singer, 26, have been in an on-again, off-again relationship. The two first sparked romance rumors after they were seen spending time together during quarantine last year. In February, DaniLeigh declared that she was single.

DaniLeigh is excited to become a mom. She recently returned home to celebrate her baby shower with her family in the Dominican Republic. “First time my entire family got together like this , little blessing in there🤰🏽💕 thank you for the gifts , the advice , the love , and the support 💪🏽 love you all,” she wrote.

Drake Says ‘Certified Lover Boy’ Is Done And ‘On The Way’

The wait is almost over.

After a series of delays, Drake has announced that Certified Lover Boy is finally finished. During his appearance on Sound 42’s “Fry Yiy Friday” on SiriusXM on Friday, Drizzy provided another update on his sixth studio album.

“Album’s cooked. Looking forward to delivering it to you,” he told fans. “Certified Lover Boy on the way, and that’s for anyone in the way.”

It’s unclear who he was referring to, but some speculate that it could be Kanye West, whose highly-anticipated album DONDA is slated to arrive Friday, Aug. 6.

Earlier this month, Drake announced that he was in the home stretch and was headed back to Toronto to mix the long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion.

“Definitely on the way home to reunite with my dog and just finish this thing up,” he told OVO Noel.

While he has yet to put an official date on it, Drake previously said that Certified Lover Boy would arrive by the end of summer after it was delayed from January. “I’m back in the studio with 40 tough. I’m just really excited about the music that we’re making and I feel like I’ve locked into a zone where I’m really trying to execute on a project that’s fulfilling for my soul.”

While fans await CLB, Drake can be heard alongside OVO Sound’s newest signee Smiley on the rising Toronto rapper’s single “Over the Top.”

Glasses Malone Says Lil Nas X Is A ‘Puppet For White Supremacy’

Glasses Malone is weighing in with his own bizarre theory about Lil Nas X.

A week after Nas debuted his much-talked-about video for “Industry Baby,” Malone took to Twitter to speak out against the openly-gay rapper, claiming that “white supremacy” is to blame for his music and videos.

lil nas x isn’t a puppet for the lgbtq+,” wrote the West Coast rapper. “he’s a puppet for white supremacy…”

He went on to declare Nas’ music as “corny.” “dude just a cornball….. old town road was corny (as much as I liked it),” he said, “but he is getting even more corny.”

Added Malone, “hopefully he grows out if it.”

His tweet caught the attention of Lil Nas himself, who dismissed the wild claim. “day 7 of the industry baby video and now lil nas x is *spins wheel* the symbol of white supremacy,” he wrote.

Malone also shared his opinion about other high-profile gay artists including Frank Ocean, Elton John, and Sam Smith, saying that unlike Nas, they are not corny.

One fan responded with their own suggestion about what Malone meant by “corny.” “we all know what you mean by corny. quiet and suppressing their sexuality,” wrote the Twitter user.

Lil Wayne Gets Massive Young Money Chain

Young Mula, baby!

Lil Wayne is adding a glacier to his neck. The Young Money boss has commissioned celebrity jeweler Eliantte for a massive chain featuring his company logo. The iced-out pendant is shaped with the YM initials and covered in sparkling diamonds.

“Tune ain’t playin,” said Eliantte, who recently designed a charm necklace for Cardi B and Offset’s daughter Kulture. He is also responsible for Lil Uzi Vert’s infamous $24 million pink forehead diamond.

This is not Wayne’s only big purchase. Earlier this year, he bought a $15.4 million house in Hidden Hills, Calif. The 12,135-square-foot modern farmhouse sits on 3.26 acres with 7 beds and 7.5 baths.

The 38-year-old rapper also recently denied rumors that he is married. He told Nicki Minaj that he remains single following his relationship with model Denise Bidot.

Late Pastor Bimbo Odukoya’s Second Daughter, Deborah, And Husband, Oluchi Enuha, Welcome Baby Girl

Late Pastor Bimbo Odukoya’s Second Daughter, Deborah, And Husband, Oluchi Enuha, Welcome Baby Girl

Late Pastor Bimbo Odukoya’s second daughter, Deborah, and husband, Oluchi Enuha, welcome baby girl.

The couple got married in September 2020. Deborah shared lovely photos from her maternity shoot on her Instagram page as well the testimony of her child’s conception and delivery. She wrote

”In September 2020, my sister @toluijogun hosted “For this Child We Pray” on @rtwni. She was so adamant that God had laid it on her heart to have one of these prayer rallies before the end of the year.

As part of the leadership in RTWNI, I had been involved in a number these rallies and had heard numerous amazing testimonies of how God showed up for women. However, it wasn’t a rally I felt I could relate to..as I wasn’t at a phase in my life were I wanted a child.

However, the September Rally in 2020 felt different. I was newly married and felt God saying to me, “you know I’ll give you a child if you ask me for one”. I felt my faith rising, I didn’t just want to attend the rally as a leader this time but also as someone believing God for a child. So I sowed a seed into the rally. I remember not having any expectations or timelines. I still wanted to enjoy the phase of being newly married, so my prayer was simple, that God would do it at His own time.

Our theme at @thefountainoflifechurch in 2020 was “Our year of a new song”. Two months after the rally, I woke up with a new song in my heart. I had never heard the song before and can’t even tell you how it goes. The song lasted only for a minute. I remember it being a song of praise and thanksgiving. At that moment, I knew I was pregnant.

Oluwa ti se o!
Edumare s’oro mi d’ayo
Olowo ori mi
Erujeje
A’lewi l’ese.

Interpretation:

God has done it!
God has turned my mourning into joy!
The owner of my head,
The One that says, and it comes to pass.

This was one of the few songs God gave me in my last trimester and it became my pregnancy anthem. God communicated with me a lot through songs during my pregnancy. I found these songs reassuring. I knew God was with me.

Our precious little girl is here now and her delivery proved that she has brought a new level of God’s favour into our home. 

My pregnancy is truly a testament of God’s love and how He truly gives good things to His children. We played “Favour like a Shield” by @toluijogun as we welcomed our baby girl into this world. A special thank you to Dr Adesanya, Sis Bunmi and Sis Ronke at St Mary’s Hospital.”

Congrats to them!
