Today, he is the father of four children – Najee Laurent, Samaria Leah, Nina Simone, Italia Anita – who are all grown. Although not a lot is known of his kids, they do share insights into their private lives via social media.
The most recent insight came when Nina Simone took to Instagram to post some pictures that highlighted how grown she had become over the years.
In the photos, the 19-year-old rocked a pair of jeans that had side slits. Nina complimented the jeans with an orange and white crop top, which flaunted her shape perfectly.
Nina is barefoot in the images in which fans have given thousands of likes and comments. According to Essence, Nina chose to follow in her parents’ artistic side as she recently debuted the music video her first single, “Call Me.”
The song and its visuals were premiered on her Instagram page just as she celebrated her 19th birthday. Fans could barely keep calm when they heard the song, and they let the singer let her know how much they loved it via her comments.
BCK Online added that one fan stated “How you gonna just drop this fire on us outta nowhere,” while another one exclaimed “Love, love, love this video! Gonna watch it over and over again!”
Fans first got the chance to listen to Nina sing a few years ago when she sang the chorus of Beyonce’s 2008 hit single “If I Were A Boy.”
Back in 2017, I Love Old School Music noted that Nina’s siblings also towed their parents’ footsteps as regards their career. While the first child, Najee, is a successful professional photographer, his sister, Samaria, is a budding musician.

Although no one is sure what career path Italia took, I Love Old School Music reported that she got married to Lamar Cartez in June 2017.
I Love Old School also suggested that Nina would excel at modeling as she knew just how to channel Naomi Campbell whenever the opportunity arose.
