Akwasi has become a father for the second time, the artist reveals via Instagram on Saturday. He deliberately had not shared on social media that his girlfriend was expecting again because of the turbulent period he has gone through, he writes.
“My girlfriend became pregnant with our second child at a very contradictory period in my life. In no time social media became a negative, toxic space, so that I mainly shared the news within my own circles and rather not on socials,” said Akwasi, who already had a daughter with his girlfriend.
The 33-year-old artist has had a son. “He’s healthy and he’s beautiful.”
Akwasi was often in the news over the past year. He came under fire last year during the Black Live Matter demonstration on Dam Square in Amsterdam because of a statement about the Sinterklaas celebration. There, the rapper said, among other things, that he would personally kick Zwarte Piet in the face if he would bump into him in November. Because he publicly distanced himself from his comment, the Public Prosecution Service decided not to convict him for sedition.
The statements nevertheless continued to haunt Akwasi. During an interview with the EO in December, he walked away because he was asked about it. He also forced the makers to delete the recordings made and took two laptops with him. After the incident, he decided to temporarily stay behind the scenes at Omroep ZWART, of which he is co-founder.
