For those who don’t know, Jhene Aiko is a popular singer who embarked on her music career by contributing vocals and appearing in several music videos for B2K. She coupled up with Big Sean in 2016 and fast forward to 2022 they welcomed their first kid, Noah Hasani.

After their divorce, Karamo then welcomed 2 more kids — Marcia, and Kareena Chilombo — with his second partner.
And now, Karamo has brought his ninth kid into this world.
Expressing his equal love for all his kids, the Dr took to his IG on December 27, 2022, to write, “I love love love love love all of my babies. All 9 -Marcia, Adio, Miyoko, Mila J, JAHI, Miyagi(Rip), Jhene’, Kareena, and JahSeh-Miyagi. Happy Holidays to all and thank all of you who wish me and all of my family season’s greetings, especially to my Queen and newborn KING.”
