Who is Vada Wamwene Mescudi?
Vada was born in the USA, on 26 March 2010 – her zodiac sign is Aries, and she holds American nationality. She became popular the moment she was born, because she’s the daughter of Kid Cudi, a famous American rapper, actor and singer-songwriter.
Early life, parents and education
Vada is being raised in Chicago, Illinois by her mother Jacqueline Munyasya, a non-celebrity American, and her father; her parents went on a couple of dates between 2009 and 2011, and their custody battle over Vada began in 2012.
Rumors began circulating the internet in the same year, claiming that Kid Cudi had given up on the custody after Jacqueline had accused him of not being there for their daughter, but Kid Cudi and his lawyer denied this, stating that he wanted to share custody with Jacqueline. The two were indeed granted shared custody, as the court acknowledged the fact that Kid Cudi was around during those two years after Vada was born, that he paid for Jacqueline’s rent and other monthly expenses, and also voluntarily provided financial support to her and Vada.
