Medikal explains why he named his daughter ‘Island’

Medikal has explained the choice of the name ‘Island’ for his first daughter with Fella Makafui.

The celebrity couple caused a bit of a stir when they revealed the name of their baby on social media.

“Welcome to the universe my queen! Island Frimpong. You no get problem, God got us,” Medikal captioned his first photo with his daughter, Island.

Responding to concerns that his daughter’s name is weird, he explained that he selected that name because the child is special and from another planet.

“Why I named my daughter Island is because I feel my baby is special and an Island is a land in the middle of water and I feel she came from a different space so I chose to give her that beautiful name ‘Island’” Medikal told YFM.

He added that his EP dubbed “Island”, was named in honour of his daughter Island Frimpong.

Medikal disclosed that the name for the baby was chosen before she was born.

“The Island EP was because of my baby….We named my baby before she even came out. So, she is the person who inspired the ‘EP’ Island. So, she is the reason why I put out the album EP. The EP is not the reason why I named my baby ‘Island’” he added.

Medikal’s “Island” EP features Kwesi Slay, Armani, Kevin Fianko, Ahtitude and many more.
