Vanessa Mdee is basking in the glory of turning a year older. The ex-singer has shown a beautiful message written by her son Seven to mark her birthday.

"With thanks and love for all you do, from TWO who think the world of you. Seven and Imani," the love letter was signed off.

She thanked her worldwide fans for warm wishes, "Thank you for all the birthday wishes, you are loved and appreciated," she shared while hanging out in a car. 

Her bae Rotimi penned a heartwarming note, telling her how much she saved his life;

"To a living legend, my best friend, a prayer warrior, the most beautiful woman, an incredible mother, and my partner. I love you so much. This journey with you has been A blessing from God. I’m so grateful to have you. YOU SAVED MY LiFE and I’m forever here with you. Happy birthday mama Imani 🤍" 

Vanesa also thanked him for being her King.

"Now I’m crying 🥹🥹🥹🥹 so blessed. I love you, my baby. 🩵

Vanessa's change over the years is something fascinating considering how eight years ago she had no interest in having children, telling an interviewer;

"Niko very busy na kazi yani na nataka nikipata mtoto nikiwa tayari kupata mttoo niwe na uwezo wa kumlea. Not just financially, but also being present in that child's life. When they go to sleep, Im there, when they wake up Im there, and even when they come from school I am there. But currently, I can't do that," she shared about her hesitation.

But now Vanessa is a mother to two children, Seven - a boy, and Imani, a girl.
