Eccentric Ghanaian artiste, WanLov Da Kubolor, one-half of the group FOKN Bois, has said that he does not expect the rather unusual names he has given to his children to have any negative effect on their lives.
Wanlov recently welcomed his fifth child and named the baby boy, Kojolescu Alata Mori.
He explained his choice of name on his Facebook page: “We have named my 5th born child Kojolescu Alata Mori … 1st name is a Ghana/Romania hybrid, 2nd name is to honour his Japanese grandfather + persecuted innocent gay Nigerians and last name is Yaa Ninja’s (the baby’s mother) last name … Domo Arigato.”
He had Kojolescu Alata Mori with his long time girlfriend, Shokola Mori popularly known as Yaa Chinese, a Japanese Arts and Culture Coordinator based in Accra, Ghana.
The other four children who are aged 7, 4, 2 and 2 are called Abonsamposuro, Mali Wasty, Ama Manpi and Tivi Lili. The children were born by five women of different nationalities – American, British, Ghanaian, Dane and Japanese.
“If there will be any effect with regards to the naming of my kids, it will be positive. Their names will have no negative effects on their lives,” he told Jay Folley on YFM.
On marriage, the rapper has made it clear that he does not believe in man-made institutions such as marriage. According to him, he does not have time to “devote my life to man-made institutions such as religion and marriage.”
Apart from music, Wanlov has made headlines predominantly for his quirkiness and rants – the mortifying show of his manhood on TV, his underwear-wearing antic in a supermarket and the release of his naked picture together with his partner, Mensa, have all made the musician well-known.
