Keyshia Cole Baby Daddy Confirms Relationship With New Boo Ariel

Keyshia Cole’s baby daddy Niko Khale shared a photo of his new girlfriend.

The father of Keyshia Cole‘s second child, Niko Khale, is moving on with a brand new lady. Khale showed off the new woman in his life in a post on his Instagram page today (May 1). He posted an image of himself and the new lady all dressed up, alongside the caption, “Oh, and let me properly introduce my other half. Her name is Ariel, like the mermaid. She’s the universe in human form.”

Khale’s “coming out photo” has been met with harsh criticism from social media users. One commenter on Instagram said, “Still can’t believe Keyshia dated this man…he look like a child. he look like he ready for prom in this pic alone come on nowwe.” Other commenters were upset that the singer was dating a white woman. One user said, “Ofc it’s a white woman,” while another wrote, “He left a grown woman for a Caucasian adolescent.”

Niko and Keyshia welcomed their son in August 2019 after dating for approximately a year. During their relationship, critics regularly commented on the age gap between them. Cole was born in 1981, which would have made her around 36 years old at the time when they began dating. Khale was born in 1995, which means there’s a 14-year gap between the couple.

Cole once responded to criticism of their relationship in an Instagram post, saying, “Now the reason I’m posting The pepper to my salt @nikokhale is because he’s been such a sweetheart to me, and I kno people have been very judgmental about our relationship but I gotta nurture what nurtures me.” She also told a reporter who questioned the age gap that Khale was more mature than she was.

The couple called it quits in July 2020 after Cole went on a rampant deleting spree on her Instagram page. Following the breakup with Keyshia Cole, Niko Khale told a fan that he was heartbroken in response to a comment urging him to reconnect with the singer. He wrote, “My heart is broken. My mind is open. My times approachin.”

It’s safe to say, Niko is not so heartbroken anymore, and neither is Cole. Keyshia recently showed off a hickey from her new boo on social media. Last month the singer posted the photo of the hickey to her InstaStory, alongside the caption “Next time make it darker bae.” It’s not yet known who the lucky guy is.

As for Khale’s new bae, we know she’s a mother herself with a young son. A day before Niko posted the image of himself and his new girlfriend, his new boo posted the same photo alongside the caption, “What’s understood doesn’t need to be explained, but best believe our story will be told. Real recognize real & you King, are the realest. Nothing could ever compare to the love we share.. It’s only up from here #STUCK #MakeItLastForever.”

Keyshia Cole Announces Retirement From Music After One More Album

Keyshia Cole says she is serious about retiring amidst the success of her latest single.

Fans of the R&B singer are in disbelief after she announced on social media that she will be retiring from her music career. Keyshia Cole, who recently released her single “I Don’t Wanna Be In Love,” shocked her longtime supporters when she made the surprise announcement today (March 17). While music fans have seen false alarms in the past from artists who expressed that they would be hanging up the mic but returned soon after, namely, Nicki Minaj, fans are worried that Keyshia Cole has already made up her mind.

“I’m retiring,” Keyshia Cole wrote on Twitter in response to a fan encouraging her to stay focused as her “new single is buzzing up the charts” and “should be top 20 next week!” When another fan called her bluff and demanded that it’s not yet her time to go as they need a trio of new albums first, Keyshia replied, “I’m not lying.” She followed up with a response to another tweet writing, “Y’all always think I’m being hacked,” with the covered face emoji.

Keyshia Cole apparently plans to drop the last album of her career in her own time. When asked if she wouldn’t be releasing any further projects, the singer told fans, “I’m already contracted to do so, I wouldn’t do that to @BMG, myself, or my fans. But I’m gonna have to move at my pace with this one. #Album8.” As for her reason to want to walk away from the music, Keyshia said, “My children.” The mother-of-2 has an 11-year-old son, Daniel Jr., and a 1-year-old, Tobias.

Keyshia’s next album is due later this spring and will follow 2017’s 11:11 Reset, which was released under Epic and Sony and was her seventh consecutive Top 40 album on Billboard. The singer’s latest single, “I Don’t Wanna Be In Love,” which she debuted during her Verzuz battle with Ashanti, marks her first release under her own label Hearts & Stars in partnership with BMG. A music video for the track that is currently No. 24 on the Adult R&B Airplay chart is slated to be released later this month.

Are you hoping Keyshia Cole will change her mind about retiring?

My children. ?? https://t.co/JqObhxx3kG

Bow Wow Talks Concept Album Dedicated To His Exes Keyshia Cole & Blac Chyna

Bow Wow reveals he use to date Keyshia Cole and Blac Chyna and that he has been plotting a concept album dedicated to his ex-girlfriends.

Bow Wow has been toying around with a couple of ideas for his new album, but it seems the topic he has finally settled on may ruffle a few feathers. The Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta star was speaking to his mom during a recent episode of the show when he explained that he wanted to do something different. That translates into doing a project about all of his high-profile relationships.

“I know how all my fans love the relationship girl records,” Shad Moss explains. “So I said I’m going to do a whole album like that.”

Bow Wow was speaking to the Ebro In The Morning team nearly a week ago when he revealed to the crew that he would be giving his last album a specific title. “I’mma give it to ‘em one time and the album is called Before 30 because everything that I’ve accomplished, I’ve seen it before 30,” he said.

Based on the most recent clip of Bow Wow, he has apparently ditched the previous name and is now working with ‘Letter To My Exes.’ He further explains, “Each song is about a girl who I shared a piece of my life with.” The “Like You” rapper highlighted that he’s very much aware that there will be some form of backlash.

“I know the woman gonna be nervous cause it’s Bow Wow, ‘What’s he gonna say’,” he said before he was cautioned by his mom to not say their names. Mom was having no luck since the 34-year-old then revealed that the titles of the tracks will be the actual names of the females in question. In response to growing concerns from his Mom, Bow Wow said, “But everything is facts and there is no dancing around nothing.”

Supposedly giving her son’s crazy idea some thought, she began running through the list of females she knows her son has had relationships with.

“Ange[Angela Simmons], we have Keyshia Cole and who else?” she questions while expressing that she thought her son only specializes in prostitutes and call girls. “There is a girl in there that used to strip…A girl that went from dancing and hit the lotto,” said Bow Wow before revealing that he dated Tyga’s baby mother Blac Chyna back in the day.

Other females linked to Shad Moss include his ex-fiance’ Erica Mena, Joie Chavez, Ayisha Diaz, Kiyomi Leslie, and Ciara.

Bow Wow has come under a lot of heat in recent times. One of the latest trolling sessions came when fans thought that he was partying on a small rescue vessel. He later explained that the boat was simply transporting patrons to a much bigger yacht. He is also being called out for hosting major concerts during the second wave of the deadly COVID-19 virus.

“For me to show cats that I didn’t have to drop a single in eight years and do no music and I’m back in these arenas that Drizzy is selling out all these guys is in and it’s 20,000 a night, it’s ridiculous. It’s unheard of,” he told Ebro.

Keyshia Cole Explains Why Ashanti Verzuz Was Again Canceled

Keyshia Cole offered concerned fans an explanation why her Verzuz battle with Ashanti didn’t happen.

Fans of Ashanti and Keyshia Cole will have to wait even longer for their Verzuz showdown. COVID-19 has forced the cancellation of dozens of concerts over the past year, and it seems that even virtual Verzuz battles are not immune. An announcement on the official Instagram account confirmed that the upcoming match-up between the two R&B stars that was set to take place on Saturday but has now been postponed.

“I’m so sorry the @verzuztv event didn’t happen!” Keyshia Cole wrote on Instagram. “I want you guys to kno, I really think @applemusic didn’t want to put staff/Production in danger along with @ashanti and myself. Due to the recent spike with the Corona virus …. I kno you all had get togethers and parties planned in states that were open. I’m so sorry! I love you guys, and thank you for the continued love and support over all these years!!! I BEEN READY! And I STAY READY.”

“This has been an emotional week. In addition, as COVID-19 numbers continue to increase, safety is a top priority for us,” read the statement from the Verzuz team. “As much as we enjoy having everyone together in the same room, to protect the artists and everyone who works with us in putting the shows together, we’ll be going back to separate locations for a bit.”

Unfortunately for lovers of Keyshia and Ashanti, this is not the first time that their hopes have been put on hold. The original duel between the pair was scheduled for December 12th but had to be put on ice as the “Foolish” singer tested positive for coronavirus. Although she has recovered, it is understandable that the Verzuz organizers want to take every precaution with COVID-19 cases climbing by more than 200,000 per day.

The news of the postponement was met with much disappointment, with many on Twitter saying they no longer cared about the battle between the New York artist and the “Heaven Sent” singer. “If Ashanti and Keyshia scared to battle Verzuz just say that,” read one tweet.

Although organizers have not revealed a new date for the face-off, let’s hope that the third time’s the charm.

Sean Price – 3 Lyrical Ps (feat. Prodigy & Styles P)

[Intro: Sean Price]
Yeah, P!
(La musica de Harry Fraud)
I could tell by your beard you don’t love Allah
You got the Bryant Gumbel face

[Verse 1: Sean Price]
It go, waste removal, we dispose brothers
Embarrassing the family, Keyshia Cole mother
Man down, stand down, blam rounds
Have bitch niggas thinking that me and my camp clowns
Listen, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey
I’m strangling brothers, I’m harming them daily
I shoot a fair one with a midget
Duke, I shoot an airgun at a pigeon
Shut the fuck up
Y’all niggas is bantamweights
Fucking with the white with the Tony Montana face
Andre Iguodala
I smack shit out of you, make your padre give me dollars
I’m not just a rapper I’m a painter by trade
Abstract art, just throw a grenade to your brains
Word to me and mine
Every word from P divine
I smack shit out of niggas dressing like Kia Shine

[Verse 2: Prodigy]
Yeah
The rap great, the beat crazy
On the daily, serve bullets across your temple get grazed it
Blood pouring out that vein, that’s not wavy
All I do in this world is get the money mainly
All I want in this world, my pretty [lil g’s]
Four pound in her Chanel clutch, yeah that’s sweet
For the life, I’ll put your brain next to your feet
Break all your toy soldiers and make it complete
Then take a couple double shots with the team
And party like it’s 2020 on the beach
Life is what you make it so I made it iconic
I fuck her so good, yeah my dick is bionic
I’m dope like chronic, I’m nasty like vomit
I spit up a verse, on your level? I’m beyond it
Black Mafia, Infamous, on that Mobb shit
Baby, you are now rocking with the best, we good regardless

[Verse 3: Styles P]
I hear you talking but it don’t mean shit
‘Cause niggas will pop on you like SEAL Team Six
Cheers to the killers in limousines
Those from Thailand with a ship through the Philippines
Soak the kerosene and thrown in the guillotine
Burnt with your head cut off, you don’t dream
You’re gelatin, my skeleton is like Wolverine’s
Your family come for revenge, blow ’em to smithereens
I’m like Morpheus on opiates
Matrix, facelift with the can opener
Gatling on the stand whenever the van open up
Doors slide, [?] hit your face like it’s rawhide
Bullets hit your teeth like it’s fluoride
I’ma bring you through hell, I’ll be the tour guide
So what you want the hawk or the .45?
Don’t you ask me ’bout no rappers they can all die
