Single motherhood is common in the entertainment industry with so many actresses and female musicians having kids outside wedlock.

But just as there are single mothers, single fatherhood is gaining ground among the male entertainers these days.

Before now, most of them publicly denied having kids but turned around months or years later to again, publicly admit fathering the kids.

Saturday Beatslists some of the ‘baby daddies’ in the entertainment industry in Nigeria.Wizkid:The news that Ayodeji Balogun popularly known as Wizkid, got a girl pregnant actually shocked most people, including his fans and even foes, the major reason being that Wizkid was more or less, a kid since he was still in his early 20s then. Apparently to save face, Wizzy (as he is also called) denied the story and even categorically told Saturday Punch that “even if I had a child, I don’t think it is something I should be ashamed of.

Instead, I would come out plainly and declare that I am a father. Everybody makes mistakes. But it was just a false rumour. I don’t have a child anywhere.”

Apparently, Wizkid is now a man, he flaunts his kid, Boluwatife, on his Instagram and it is so evident the young artiste showers his little kid with so much love.

Wande Coal:It also came as a shock when just few weeks ago, Wande Coal openly declared, “I have a five-year-old son. The identity of the mother of his son is still unknown and the dark-skinned singer is not even ready to reveal her identity.

Timaya:The self-acclaimed Egberi Papa One of Bayelsa, Timaya, actually went to the rooftop and declared ‘I am now a father.

’ He certainly wasn’t playing hide and seek. But almost two years down the line, Timaya is yet to make an honest woman of his ‘Baby mama’ by taking her to the altar.

Terry G:Gabriel Amanyi, better known as Terry G, couldn’t hide his excitement when his girlfriend was delivered of a baby boy in the UK. Amanyi reportedly said he became a more responsible man since he became a father.

Almost a year and a half later, Terry G is yet to become more responsible by becoming a husband. Nevertheless, the singer loves his son to bits as he is seen taking him places.

Ice Prince:Panshack Zamani popularly known as Ice Prince fathered his first child when he was still in his 20s.

Those who know alleged Ice Prince wasn’t so happy when his girlfriend, Bimbo, got pregnant for him.

But now, Ice Price is a proud father as he readily shows off pictures of his kid on the social media.

May D:Sure Boi singer, May D joined the celebrity single fathers when his on/off girlfriend Debola, gave birth to a boy last year.

He quickly went on twitter and shared the news with his friends and fans saying, “I just had a ‘sure’ boy.’ Whether he would settle down with the mother of his child is still only known to May D.

9ice:Abolore ‘9ice’ Akande’s marriage to Toni Payne obviously could not be salvaged and as such, the talented singer got ‘busy’ which resulted to a set of twins. But 9ice didn’t behave so nicely when he vehemently denied fathering any set of twins.

Nevertheless, the young man eventually admitted to Saturday Punch years after that he had kids and explained he had “reasons” for denying them initially.

It is still not known if 9ice would settle down with his ‘baby mama’ eventually.
