NEWS DIGEST – Supermodel, Naomi Campbell has officially confirmed to her curious fans that she is dating British musician Skepta, whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga.
Skepta, who is 15 years younger than the fashion icon, was born in North London on September 19, 1982, to Nigerian immigrant parents.
There had been rumour about their relationship, but Naomi, 47, confirmed it via an Instagram post on Thursday, when she shared a GQ cover featuring her and her beau cuddled close while wearing nothing but jewelry.
Skepta is the first man Naomi has been linked to since Egyptian millionaire Louis C. Camilleri in July 2017, the Mail Online reported.
He made his musical debut in 2007 with the release of his cleverly titled album, Greatest Hits.
Skepta’s second album, Microphone Champion, followed in 2009. Both albums were independent releases. By the time his third album, Doin’ It Again, was released in 2011, he had signed with AATW.
Skepta didn’t begin to really draw attention until his fourth album, however. The project, titled Konnichiwa, was released in May 2016. It won him a Mercury Prize.
Since gaining notoriety, he’s collaborated and performed with major names in the music business like Flatbush Zombies, Wizkid and Drake, Kanye West and more
The rapper has four siblings, two of whom music aficionados may be familiar with. His one brother is a grime rapper called Jme. Skepta has another sibling, Julie Adenuga, who’s a DJ on Beats 1.
In addition to musical pursuits, Skepta founded a clothing company called Mains. The brand dropped its first line in June 2017.
