Invited on the Twitch channel of journalist and host of "Questions for a champion" Samuel Etienne, Soprano revealed that he had found his first child, a little boy born under X more than 20 years ago.
The singer had learned of the existence of his son several weeks after his birth, when the infant had already been placed with social assistance for children.
A moving story.
The Soprano singer, who became a father for the first time at the age of 16, had never met his son until very recently.
"I was with a girl, she placed the child at the DDASS without telling me. He was born under X", he explained during an interview on Samuel Etienne's Twitch channel.
"It's a crazy story. It's the first time I'm talking about it. Nobody knows", continues the singer who had only once mentioned this painful episode of his life, in his song
Talk to me,
released in 2007.
"It's been 2 months since I found him"
Soprano has finally reconnected with his son, 27 years after his birth, as he reveals to Samuel Etienne.
"It's been 2 months since I found him. It's incredible," enthuses the singer.
"He's nice, smart, tall, funny. When I said in an interview that it was the best year of my life, it was because I was doing the stadiums, but also for that".
"I had done on purpose to talk about him in interviews"
explains that it was his son who found him.
"I had done it on purpose to talk about him in interviews and in my songs because I couldn't do otherwise. And it worked! It's magnificent!" Says Soprano.
The singer is the father of three other children, fruits of his love with Alexia, his wife since 2006: the eldest, Inaya, is 15 years old, the youngest, Lenny, 13 years old, and the youngest, Luna, from 10 years.
Soprano did not wish to reveal the first name of her 27-year-old boy.
