Tanzanian rapper Ambwene Allen Yessayah alias AY welcomed a bouncing baby boy on Sunday.

The newborn named Aviel Yessaya, meaning God is my father, was born 3.9kg, 27inches in height at Medical City Health Care Texas to AY and his wife Remy.

Sharing the news on Twitter with his fans, AY thanked God for the birth of his son.

Remy and AY tied the knot five months ago in a low key invite-only wedding at Seaside Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

AY who started his music career with S.O.G group before going solo in 2002, was among the first bongo flava artistes to commercialize hip-hop, winning awards such as best hip-hop single with his song ‘usijaribu’, best video from Tanzania, collaboration of the year and best Tanzanian male artiste among others.
