The world is filled with social-media trolls and celebrities have always been on the backend of their cyberbullying, facing public scrutiny for things they do and don’t put out there for the world to know.

Just like many other celebs, Bontle Modiselle and Priddy Ugly opted to keep their child, Afrika Bonita Lerato Moloi, out of the spotlight since her birth last November. This included blurring out her face in pictures and not including baby Afrika too much in their social-media posts.

Now, however, the first-time parents have decided to show us their beautiful baby girl. On their YouTube channel, Ha Moloi, the actress and musician posted a video revealing Afrika’s face and speaking about how they beat Covid-19.

On season 2 of their YouTube series, the couple has renovated their house and speak about how good it is to be back. “We needed to take the time away. Real life has been happening to us but we will give you an overview on what has been up,” Bontle explains.

During their video, baby Afrika starts crying and that’s when Bontle gets up to introduce her to fans. “As you can see, our baby girl’s face is not blurred. Introducing Princess Afrika Bonita Lerato Moloi,” Priddy Ugly says proudly.

The new parents go into how they both had Covid-19 and speak about their symptoms, including baby Afrika’s one day of having a runny nose. “We didn’t want to shoot a video or even let you guys know about it before we had really gone through it. We wanted to be selfish with our time and focus on our health,” the singer says.
