Introducing Gekyume Onfroy, the son of the late XXXTentacion and Jenesis Sanchez.
Earlier today, XXXtentacion’s mom, Cleoparta Bernard, shared a photo of her grandson to her Instagram followers. She simply captioned the photo, “Prince Yume”.
XXXtentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, was shot on June 18, 2018, a few weeks after he found out he was going to be a father. Jenesis, the late rapper’s girlfriend, says that Jahseh had names picked out for his child.
“Gekyume means different state or next universe of thought. And yes, Jahseh picked out this name before he passed away,” Sanchez said in a recent interview. “I know it’s kind of hard to say, Gekyume. So, he goes by Yume.”
Sanchez added that she will make sure that baby Yume knows about his father.
“I’m definitely not going to ever lie about him. He’s going to hear about his dad 24/7,” she said. “I’m going to tell him about all the fond memories I have with his dad, Jahseh. I’m going to tell him how much his dad would have loved him. I know sometimes, probably when he gets older, it will affect him more than now when he is younger, but he’s definitely going to know about his father.”
Jahseh Onfroy would have turned 21 years old Jan. 23. Baby Yume was born January 26th.
