Singer Sade Adu's only child Mickailia
“Ila” Adu came out as a transgender man last week on Instagram.
Speculation that Adu, 20, was
transitioning first surfaced in the spring.
“Today is the first day of the rest
of my life,” Adu captioned a black and white selfie along with a
sun and needle emoji, the date 4/10/16 and the hashtags #shotday
#firstshot #finally #ftm #selfmademan #transman #proud #yaaassss.
Prior to his transition, Adu openly
identified as a lesbian.
Nigerian born British singer-songwriter
Sade in the late 90s moved to the Caribbean to live with Jamaican
music producer Bob Morgan. Prior to separating, Sade gave birth to
her only child.
The singer reportedly took an 8-year
break from music to raise her child.
