On Wednesday, dancehall artiste Aidonia, born Sheldon Lawrence, shared a photograph of his son Khalif Lawrence following the 9-year-old’s recent passing.
The deejay, who goes by the moniker @aidonia4thgenna on Instagram, shared a photo on his Instagram stories of a happy, much younger Khalif, who appeared to be a toddler at the time the photograph was taken.
Khalif’s passing on Saturday, December 3, was confirmed by Aidonia’s management team, who disclosed that the artiste’s son had been battling cancer for three years. Khalif was first diagnosed with the illness in August 2019.
The nine-year-old’s final moments were spent with his father and his mother, Kimberly Lawrence. The couple, who are still grieving the loss of their son, shared via Aidonia’s team that they would not be taking part in interviews during this time.
