Deyjah Harris praised by dad T.I. for defending her brother like a boss in viral footage
Deyjah Harris might be an easy-going girl, but when someone dares to mess with her family, the 17-year-old will jump to their defense in a blink. A recent clip shared by her father T.I on Instagram proved just that, and he couldn’t stop gushing about the brave teenager.
The “Dime Trap” rapper took to Instagram a few days ago to share a clip that shows Deyjah defending her 14-year-old brother, King Harris, while they were shopping.
The siblings were shopping at a departmental store when Instagram comedian Funny Marco approached them as part of one of his pranks. The joke involved Marco accusing random customers of doing something wrong.
“What you did was rude and disrespectful,” Marco said to King.
“What?” the confused teenager asked as his sister noticed the situation. Deyjah had been checking out some items on a bottom shelve, but immediately stood up with a defiant stance to face Marco.
She asked the comedian: “What you talking ‘bout bro? What did he do?”
When Marco only repeated that King was rude and disrespectful, Deyjah asked in a stern tone:
“But what did he do, is the question.”
T.I, proud of his daughter’s confidence and how she stood up for her little brother, shared the clip with his millions of Instagram followers, adding in the caption:
“My baby @princess_of_da_south DONT PLAY u hear me?!?!?! @funnymarco u was gin get your unadulterated issue from this bunch sir!!! #UgotTheRightOnesBabyyyyUhhhHuhh -RayCharles voice.”
Deyjah is T.I’s daughter from a previous relationship with ex-girlfriend, Ms. Niko.
The proud parents, plus step-mom Tiny Harris, couldn’t stop gushing about the 17-year-old model last December when she was in charge of the senior class speech at her school.
Deyjah proved that she has beauty and brains, leaving fans in awe with her articulate speech and thoughtfulness.
In a short clip shared on Instagram by Tiny Harris, Deyjah can be heard speaking with confidence to her peers about knowing what their mission in this world is and working hard to achieve it. She said:
“We are the creators of our own reality, no one else in this world can create our reality for us, because we all came into this world already subconsciously aware of the mission we were individually assigned to accomplish.”
“We are all different in our own unique ways, and as such, it would be wrong to expect all of us to achieve the same standards.”
She also mentioned how society makes young people believe they should strive for perfection when, in reality, they should focus on being themselves and following their journeys and missions in life.
T.I couldn’t contain his pride, calling Deyjah’s perspective “poignant and true” and her potential “limitless.”
“Her time is NOW!!! Her imperfections are few & far in between. Because her very existence is Perfection. She WILL CHANGE THE WORLD!!!” he added.
The rapper also has two sons, Domani and Messiah, with another ex, and shares King, Major, and little Heiress with wife Tiny. The Xscape singer also has an older daughter, Zonnique Pullins, from a previous relationship.
Zonnique and Deyjah have proven they have a unique bond, and Pullins previously gave fans a hint into Deyjah’s fiery side when she picked out the teenager as most likely to defend her.
In a promotional clip for “T.I. and Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle,” Zonnique revealed that if she ever needed someone to fight for her, she’d call her sister, Deyjah.
“Deyjah seems really quiet. She seems shy, but she’s not at all,” said Zonnique. “She knows how to fight because all of her life, she’s had to fight all her brothers, and I’ve seen her fight.”
