Verdine White has a sweet relationship with his granddaughter Naila. Since she's following in his footsteps, that might make it even stronger. 


White, who was in the legendary rock and roll group "Earth, Wind, and Fire," has passed down his talent to his gorgeous granddaughter. She's only 17, but she's already giving performances. 

The curly-haired beauty is regularly spotted on her grandfather's Instagram account where he has shared several milestones in her life. Photos can be found below. 


Most recently, White posted a picture of him and Naila after a performance at Los Angeles' After Church. The teen's Instagram account is filled with clips of her singing if one wants to get an idea of what she can do. 

In her account description, she lets fans in on her upcoming single which will have a surprise feature. In the comment sections of her videos, fans continually support her endeavors. 


Her granddad is also by her side always. Pictures go way back to the celebration of her 15th birthday for which he posted a photo in 2017. In it, the two danced together as White looked at her. 

He had already posted a birthday celebration photo earlier that year from the same party, so it just goes to show how much he loves his granddaughter. "Congratulations to my babygrand Naila!" he wrote at the time. 


White again reposted the photo in 2018. This time, he added a more current one of her posing in a sheer floral dress that featured a high slit and midriff exposure. 

Even as his progeny continues his legacy, White and his former bandmates are not slowing down their work in the industry. At least, they're returning for the fans for a while. 


In an interview with the Detroit News in August 2018, White spoke ahead of the first stop of their new tour. The legend discussed not only music but the charity he runs and his music education program.

The iconic bass player runs a program that teaches kids music by sending them to different cities every summer. He also touched on the inclusive lyrics which were inspired by his late brother Maurice White. 

White started music at just 19, just two years older than his granddaughter is now. He called his years-long dedication to the industry a "testimony to the music and [the band] being dedicated to the music."
