RZA. That’s the birth name given to Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s first child. The Daily Mail broke the news having gotten a hold of official live birth documents, which note the child’s birth date as May 13th, 2022 and his city of birth as Los Angeles, California. His full name is RZA Athelston Mayers.
Neither Rihanna nor A$AP had ever once revealed their son’s name, since birth. The mystery of his name was somewhat perplexing to some – The Daily Mail obviously having been intrigued by the secrecy, and bent on finding out. Some on social media have called out the media house’s action as invasive and disgusting. RZA is the stage name adopted by WuTang Clan founder, Robert Fitzgerald Diggs. The creative is known for his accomplishments in rap, film and music production. It has also been said that both baby RZA’s parents are huge fans of the Wu Tang Clan.
The young Mayers shares his father’s name, Rakim – baby boy bearing his dad’s name as his middle name. Since giving birth, Rihanna had been spotted and photographed wearing clothing that gave a clue into the baby’s name, however it was never openly stated. Now into her second pregnancy, and ahead of celebrating her son’s first birthday, the news is out and folks across the internet are pleased. “I love it!!!! Rakim, Robyn and Rza,” said one person. “I mean ASAP is named after his parent favorite rapper and he wanted to do the same❤️ I love that,” commented another on social media.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been dating since November 2020.
