A few years ago, Sade’s only child decided to become the person he was destined to be and transitioned from a woman to a man, changing his name from Mickailia “Ila” Adu to Izaak Theo Adu.

Izaak’s journey to reach his full identity was difficult, but with his mom’s love, it was bearable. Today, he remains open about the process and is eternally grateful for having the best support system.

In one of his posts, Izaak shared that it took six months to fully transition into a man. He also detailed his experience alongside a snap in a hospital bed, writing:

“This process is trying, tiring, painful, emotionally exhausting, physically exhausting [...] this is the path that was laid out for me and I’ll walk it to the end.”

However, everything turned out to be worth it in the end, as Izaak embraced life as a new man. Since his transition, many blessings have showered upon the singer’s son, including a Burberry modeling stint.

LIFE AS A MODEL
