R&B diva Keyshia Cole is going to be a mom again! The singer and her hip-hop artist beau, Niko Khale, are expecting their first child together. Unlike the fabulous Miss Cole, Khale is relatively new to the scene. So if you’re one of those wondering, Who is Niko Khale? we’ve got all the deets on the soon-to-be dad here.
|About Niko Khale|
|Known As||Ace Primo|
|Birth||October 17, 1995 Washington, D.C.|
|Job||Hip-hop artist, Songwriter|
|Hometown||Charlotte, North Carolina|
Niko Khale Hails from North Carolina
Niko Khale was born on October 17, 1995 in Washington, D.C. He later moved to Charlotte, North Carolina.
There’s very little known about his early life and family. But Khale does post pictures with his mother often.
Khale Was Previously Known as Ace Primo
When he first started as an artist, Khale used the stage name “Ace Primo.” And in 2005, Primo began uploading his music on MySpace. Producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins heard his songs and was really impressed with them.
Eventually, Khale stopped using Ace Primo and started performing under his real name, which is what he wanted people to remember him by.
Khale is an independent hip-hop artist and a songwriter. He is famous for his songs such as “Something Changed About You” and “Truth Is.” He was featured on one of Nelly Furtado’s songs, “High Life,” from the album The Spirit Indestructible.
On his birthday, Khale took to Twitter to announce that his extended play, On My Own, is now available on Itunes, Spotify, and Apple Music. Some of the songs from the EP are “War Ready,” “On My Own,” and “Water Under the Bridge.”
Khale and Keyshia Are Going to Be Parents
Khale and Keyshia Cole have been dating since 2018. They have a 14-year age difference but were unaffected by the negative attention towards their May-December relationship.
But fans were excited back in July 2018, when Cole first took to Instagram to announce she was pregnant. She didn’t say who the baby daddy was at the time, but fans suspected it was her new boyfriend Khale.
However, the Keyshia Cole’s baby daddy frenzy ended the next day, when Cole later admitted that she was “trolling” fans and the pregnancy announcement was fake to hit back at body shamers.
“I KINDA☝? APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y’all I was ##Preggo !!!! Buuuuuuut y’all need to stop body shamming me and sayin I’m PREGNANT ? EVERY OTHER DAY !!!! Like seriously, it hurts my feelings, ” she wrote.
But it’s no joke this time. Cole took to Instagram on May 3 to announce that she’s expecting a baby for real. She even showed off her baby bump proudly.
She doesn’t mention Khale in her post but she does tag him. So it’s safe to say the young artist is going to be a dad.
No word on how far along she is and when the baby is due. This would be the second child for Cole, who has a son, Daniel Gibson Jr., with ex-husband and former NBA player Daniel Gibson.
