Rise to Fame as the Son of XXXTentacion

Gekyume rose to stardom even before he was born, all thanks to his late father who was an internationally famed rapper, singer, and songwriter. The short yet highly successful career of the rapper saw him leaving a big impact on the ‘SoundCloud’ rap scene and acquiring a massive fan base with his catchy music. Noted for his tattoos and unique half-colored hair, the rapper released chart-topping studio albums such as ‘17,’ ‘?,’ and ‘Skins.’ Two of his popular singles were ‘Sad!’ and ‘Falling Down’ (with Lil Peep). He was shot and killed on June 18, 2018, during a robbery at a motorcycle dealership named ‘RIVA Motorsports’ in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The attackers robbed him of his Louis Vuitton bag containing $50,000, before fatally shooting him multiple times in the neck. At that time, XXXTentacion was romantically associated with Jenesis Sanchez. While his loved ones and fans were still mourning the untimely death of the young talent, his mother, Cleopatra Bernard, took to Instagram 3 days after his demise and announced that the family was expecting the first child of XXXTentacion and Jenesis.

Earlier, it was confirmed through an ultrasound that the baby would be born sometime between November and December 2018. On August 22, 2018, it was confirmed that the unborn baby was a boy. The family of the late rapper mentioned that he had chosen to name the child “Gekyume” if it were a boy and “Xiorra” if it were a girl. Xxxtentacion created the names by mixing and mashing the names of the characters from his favorite video game ‘Kingdom Hearts.’ “Gekyume” means "next universe" or "a different state.”

The due date of the child’s birth was later confirmed to be January 28, 2019. Gekyume was finally born in Florida on January 26, 2019, 3 days after his father’s birthday. Gekyume’s birth was announced by his grandmother, Cleopatra, on her Instagram account. She lovingly calls the baby “Yume.” A post informing about the birth of Gekyume was also made on XXXTentacion’s official Instagram account, which is managed by the late rapper’s family and manager. Throughout the pregnancy, Jenesis Sanchez’s identity was kept a secret by Cleopatra in order to protect her from unnecessary media attention. Xxxtentacion’s family had initially planned for a home birth and had hired a midwife for Jenesis. However, she had to be rushed to the hospital around the time of delivery as she required an emergency C-section. In an interview with WPLG Local 10, Jenesis mentioned that she would make sure her son knows everything about his late father and will share all the fond memories she had with him.

Gekyume has now become a wild internet sensation even though he is not on any social media platform. He has a popular fan page on Instagram under the name ‘gekyume’ with around 330k followers on it. He also has a fan channel on Youtube named ‘Gekyume Onfroy Official.’ The channel hosts compilations of photos and short videos of the young star that entertains an audience of over 19k subscribers. He is also frequently featured on his mother’s Instagram account ‘jenesisgiselle’ and has also appeared on her self-titled Youtube channel (Jenesis Giselle).
