Tyrese is teaming up with KFC and Vibe to bring ‘Fresh Fathers,’ a campaign that seeks to honor great dads who sacrifice daily to provide for their kids. The all-around entertainer recently did several series with Vibe to promote the campaign, and was sure to give fans an up-close-and-personal look at how fatherhood has positively impacted his life.


Tyrese told Vibe about Shayla’s birth and how it  gave him a foundation to build upon. “I didn’t have a bottom line before she came in the world,” explained the star. “I used to tolerate and put up with pretty much anything, but i now know, if i keep things, people and situations in my life, it can it get in the way of providing for my little girl.”

The entertainer went on to call his daughter a hero telling Vibe, “She has changed my life forever. At this point everything I do, everywhere I go, every hour I spend in the studio is all dedicated to her.”

The ‘Fresh Fathers’ campaign will reward one well-deserving father with a free trip to Las Vegas next month. Go here to nominate your dad or a great father you know. Shayla is Tyrese’s only child with ex-wife Norma Mitchell.
