Yesterday, we shared details about the disheartening news about Keke Wyatt’s child but for those who missed it, the “Nothing In This World” announced her child was diagnosed with cancer. She took to Instagram with a heartfelt post about her child’s condition.
“Plz Pray For My Family”
In her Instagram announcement, she also revealed her child’s hair is now gone as a result of the cancer treatments and what she’s doing to show her support. “Plz pray for my family… Haven’t really said to [sic] much about my personal life, But my child has been fighting cancer and lost all of their hair that they loved. It hurts me so bad. So to show Mommy’s support I’m going to get @keever_west to shave me bald today”
Keke also urged fans to donate to the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta (CHOA), a non-profit medical organization geared toward specialized pediatric treatment. “I need a complete healing for my baby…If u want to donate plz go to http://www.choa.org 💋💋💋Prayers work best for Us!!!,” she said in her caption.
Of course, most fans know KeKe Wyatt loves to sing, but many probably have no clue how much she loves hair. During a previous interview with Essence magazine, the R&B Divas star opened up about her love for hair and cosmetology. “I love doing hair. I’m a hair freak,” she told Essence. I just love how it feels on my fingertips.”
However, no amount of love supersedes the love she has for her babies. So when the time came to emotionally and psychologically support her child and their cancer treatment, Keke didn’t flinch when it came to shaving her head. Her brother, Keever, did her the honors. See Keke’s shaved head, which she also debuted on Instagram Live Saturday evening below…

The latest news about KeKe’s family follows a string of reports about the announcement of her ninth child with her husband Michael Ford. Back in April, KeKe’s rep released a statement about their new addition. “My family is excited. We come from big families where I’m from. Everyone knows my work doesn’t stop when I’m pregnant so I’m excited to continue performing and traveling around the world,” her rep said in a statement at the time.
Prayers up for KeKe Wyatt and her family!
