It has been months since the unfortunate passing of American rapper, XXXTentacion but his legacy will forever live on in his music and his child.
Shortly after his passing, his mother, Cleopatra Bernard revealed to his fans that he had a little bundle of joy on the way and she continued to give fans an update on the baby’s progress, and his name, without revealing the mother’s identity.
Finally, shortly before the baby’s birth last month, she shared with fans that Jenesis Sanchez is the mother of XXXTentacion’s son.
Jenesis has now revealed in an interview with Local 10 News, how they came about picking their baby’s name, Gekyume and her relationship with XXXTentacion.
She revealed that XXXTentacion found out about her pregnancy two weeks before his passing and he had already made up names for their baby – He chose the name Gekyume for a boy and Xiorra for a girl.
She said he made up the names by picking up letters from the names of characters in his favourite video game.
“Gekyume means different state or next universe of thought. And yes, Jahseh picked out this name before he passed away. I know it’s kind of hard to say, Gekyume. So, he goes by Yume,” said Jenesis.
