The reclusive, elusive singer Sade hasn’t made a record since 2010’s Soldier Of Love. Nor does she have any social media accounts. Even the paparazzi leave her alone. But her daughter, Mackaila ‘Ila’ Adu, has been reported by several sites to have begun the medical process to transition into a man. On an Instagram account believed to be Ila’s, she posted that the process of taking hormone shots had begun. The 20-year-old, Sade’s only child, is from her relationship with Jamaican producer Bob Morgan.
Since the post surfaced a few days ago (the date reflects the U.K. custom of putting the month second) the page has been set to private. As it has not been totally confirmed that this account belongs to Sade’s daughter, we don’t expect to hear much more about it. We certainly won’t get any confirmation from Sade.
