Popular gospel musician, Yinka Ayefele, has welcomed a set of triplets with Temitope, his wife of 19 years.
The couple already had three children.
The 51-year-old musician confirmed the arrival of his babies by posting a video of the children on Instagram on Friday.
The singer’s wife gave birth to the two boys and a girl in a hospital in Maryland, United States of America.
This latest development is coming a few weeks after he denied viral reports that his wife had given birth to a set of twins.
The singer had debunked the reports on June 6 and urged his fans to ignore the reports.
“Fake News, Fake Pictures. That picture was taken 7yrs ago during my younger brothers naming at music house in Ibadan. Thank you all for Wishing me well and I claim it in Jesus name,” he wrote at the time.
The singer’s colleagues and fans have been sending congratulatory messages since he broke the news on Friday afternoon.
On December 12, 1997, Yinka Ayefele was involved in an automobile accident, which damaged his spinal cord and confined him to the wheelchair.
The tragedy later became a watershed that transformed his life.
With 22 albums to his credit, Ayefele remains one of Nigeria’s biggest gospel music sensations.
