A Canadian rapper popularly known as Dax on Wednesday, July 7, went on Facebook to celebrate his parents who have been together for 35 years.
Sharing a photo from when he graduated college many years ago, the young man revealed that it was his proudest moment.
They grew up in Nigeria
Dax revealed that while his mother was born in Aba, his father grew in Lagos and can speak both Yoruba and Igbo well.
The rapper said his parents initially frowned at him playing professional basketball and then going into music. He said that they had to leave him alone when they saw he was passionate about them.
I want to take care of them
He revealed that his biggest motivation daily is to make them proud and take care of his parents in their old age.
His post partly read:
“They set an example of how to work hard and expect nothing from anyone and I followed those footsteps and put myself through college with a full basketball scholarship and now am putting myself through the real world INDEPENDENTLY with music for the people spread by the people. Thank you mom and dad for your sacrifices. I love you.”
