Nigerian music sensation, Davido, has confirmed the existence of his son, Dawson, with his alleged fourth baby mama, Larissa London. The artiste spoke about his newly acknowledged child during an interview on the popular “AB Talks show.” While discussing the significance of naming his daughters after his late mother, Davido proudly acknowledged his fourth child and second son, Dawson. He said, “I named both my daughters after my mum. Hailey is the exact replica of my mum; my second daughter is just like my mum. It’s crazy. It’s like she came in her. I have a son too. His name is Dawson. He lives in London right now.”

Previously, rumors had circulated about Davido’s involvement with Larissa London, leading to speculation of another child. Fans had noticed a striking resemblance between the boy and the artiste, fueling the rumors. While Davido had initially remained silent about the matter, recent reveals have now confirmed his connection to Dawson. Reportedly, the Unavailable crooner had initially sought to verify the paternity through a DNA test due to his uncertainty.

“Blood & Water” is back for another season. In an Instagram timeline, Netflix revealed in a clip that production for the fourth season was underway. Cast members Ama Qamata and Khosi Ngema were dressed in their school uniforms and joined by their co-stars in the clip where they let fans in on a secret. While they may be stars of the drama, the talent on the show have been doing other things on the side that have kept them in the public eye.

4. Tory Lanez sentencing moved to provide defense more time

On Tuesday, June 13, sentencing was delayed for Tory Lanez at the request of his defense team to provide them more time to file a sentencing memorandum. According to reports, Superior Court Judge Herriford reset the date for August 7 for the Toronto rapper, whose real name is Daystar Peterson. Prosecutors are asking Lanez be sentenced to 13 years in prison.

During a hearing last month, Judge Herriford rejected the defense’s bid for a new trial. Jose Baez, one of the 30-year-old’s new attorneys, called his client’s defense during the trial “a jumbled, bungled mess,” and that lawyer George Mgdesyan “did not have enough time to prepare for trial and ultimately failed.”

5. Real Madrid confirm Jude Bellingham’s €103m transfer from Borussia Dortmund on six-season deal

Real Madrid have confirmed Jude Bellingham’s €103 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund. Bellingham’s move to Santiago Bernabeu was first announced by Borussia Dortmund last week, with the German club also confirming the huge €103m (£88m/$110m) transfer fee. The 19-year-old then completed a medical before finalizing terms with Real, who will officially present him as their newest signing this week.

The Spanish giants released an official statement announcing the deal on Wednesday, which reads: “Real Madrid CF and Borussia Dortmund have agreed on the transfer of the player Jude Bellingham, who will remain linked to our club for the next six seasons.” The club added on Bellingham’s presentation ceremony: “Tomorrow, Thursday, June 15, at 12:00 noon at Real Madrid City, the presentation ceremony for Jude Bellingham as a new Real Madrid player will take place. Next, Jude Bellingham will appear before the media.”
