It seems like only yesterday when Lil Bow Wow celebrated his 21st birthday at Jet Nightclub in Las Vegas with his own personal bottle of Patron. Now at 24-years-old, the child Rapper / Actor is just Bow Wow and he’s a father too! Two days ago, Thursday, July 6th, Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Moss, posted a letter on his website to fans about being a father to his daughter Shai Shai.
“I love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, it’s like it made me into a man over night. Never been a fan of posting pictures of my daughter. Reason is because I want my boo boo to have everything I didn’t, writes Bow Wow.
Bow Wow says he waited to go public with the news about his daughter because he was nervous about how his fans would see him, and he also wanted to protect his daughter from the paparazzi so she could have the freedom he didn’t have, and enjoy her childhood– the childhood he says he missed out on.
“I waited so long to tell y’all the truth because I was nervous on how y’all would look at me. Y’all know everyone makes a big deal out of everything I do,” says Bow Wow…”Never been a fan of posting pictures of my daughter. Reason is because I want my boo boo to have everything I didn’t. Want her to be able to cheer-lead with her lil friends without someone sticking his camera all in my lil girl face. I know how fame is. I missed out on so much that I now know how important it is to cherish and have those things in life” — Read the entire letter on Bow Wow Today
