Sharing his photos on Instagram, Ubi wrote;

“Today you are three-years-old and your adorable self doesn’t understand what a big deal this is for your mama and I, but my boy, it is.

I know that it sounds cliche to say it feels like only yesterday I And your Mum, Aunty and her Family Visited Northern Arizona The Grand Canyon is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World…

After that walk we got back to our hotel tired and the sleep came knocking, at about 12:30 am I heard your mums voice “Ubi wake up my water just broke” it sounded like what I have been expecting to hear and then we drove 4 hours to get to hospital, your mum showed a lot of strength…

You came out about 4pm on the 17th day of July 2016 Glory Be to God…

I just love when you sing. You remind me of your mum when you sing. Neither of you really know all of the lyrics, but you both sing with such sincerity and joy that it doesn’t matter…
