Okan had made the headlines in July when she shared a photo of her protruded tummy and announced that her unborn foetus was eight months old.


She was alleged to have been in a relationship with Olamide.

The good news comes at a time when award-winning singer welcomed a second child with Adebukumi Aisha, his fiance, in the United States.

It also comes few days after Fatima Dangote, daughter of Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, welcomed a bouncing baby girl with Jamil Abubakar, her husband.
