Tanzanian rapper, Vanessa Mdee has welcomed her first baby with Nigerian-born Hollywood actor and singer, Akinosho Olurotimi, professionally known as Rotimi.

Mdee took to her Instagram page on Wednesday to share a picture of two adult fingers holding a baby finger.

She captioned the picture with the baby’s name, “Seven Adeoluwa Akinosho”. However, the date of delivery was not disclosed.

Similarly, The Coming 2 America actor took to his verified Instagram page to replicate Mdee’s post; sharing the same picture and caption.

Earlier this month, Rotimi had revealed the gender of the baby as Mdee also announced her pregnancy on Instagram.

In an exclusive interview with People Mdee revealed that the journey has been a smooth one so far with minor challenges as the pregnancy nears its final weeks.


“He’s been so good to us. No real pain or symptoms. Some funny cravings and food aversions here and there. It’s been much harder in these final weeks because he’s preparing his arrival, but all in all we’ve been super blessed,” she said.

Vanessa, 32; and Rotimi, 33; first met in New Orleans at an Essence Festival after-party. The love birds took their relationship further when Rotimi proposed to Mdee on the 30th of December 2020, at Atlanta.
