Shot in Dallas, Texas USA, Deyemi teamed up with filmmaker-photographer Biola Metesun of MalekFoto Films to co-produce a well-shot movie with some extremely impressive camera work where he shares words of wisdom with his newborn.

    Why would Deyemi and Wife even do this? Are they not ministers at Covenant Christian Centre? They should just come out naked already. How does one not succumb to the pressures of the world.? Take the pictures and put it in an album in your house or the wall. Whatever the deal, keep it in the four corners of your home. This is terrible. I used to have a lot of respect for him. Thank God Grandma didn’t succumb, that would have been the nail to seal the coffin.

      Well that to me isn’t naked! Why are people so judgemental?Nothing to say so you point out their position in church as a yard stick to criticise them.
      How about you listen to the inspiring words that people like you need to learn from. Huh?
      Who cares what you think

      Wow how can you be so negative to something so beautiful and wonderful. You turn it to hate. My friend you are the problem not them. But I don’t blame you because it shows your ignorance and illiteracy. Let me educated you what the parents are doing is care “KANGAROO CARE” IN MEDICAL TERM. Kangaroo care means a method of caring for premature babies in which the infants are held skin-to-skin with a parent, usually the mother, for as many hours as possible every day. Kangaroo care has shown in many research studies and evidence base practices that babies who are born prematurely are likely to improve tremendously due to skin to skin contact. Being next to mom also helps the baby regulate his or her respiratory and heart rates. Babies born before 37-38 weeks do not have a full develop lung. So they have irregular breathing. Even when babies listens to their parents heart rate helps to smooths and comforts them. While skin to skin with mom the baby’s body temperature begins to depend on the mother, requiring the baby to use fewer calories to stay warm. Mothers naturally modulate the warmth of their breasts to keep their infants at the optimal temperature where babies sleep best, have the best oxygen saturation levels, the least caloric expenditure, and so forth. Maternal breast temperature can rise rapidly, then fall off as baby is warmed. As the baby starts to cool, the breasts heat up again—as much as 2 degrees C in two minutes! The is a lot of research on skin to skin contact do your research. In the Newborn ICU IT IS MANDATORY TO DO KANGAROO CARE.

    @just saying, don’t you come up here putting up the ‘holier than thou’ attitude. what makes you think its okay to spew such vile comments. Who the hell are you to judge people? Take several seats in your demented world. Your opinion doesn’t count. Hypocrites !!!

    They can’t be freed because they put it on social media. .As an actor, that’s his job, so no biggie if he kisses to potray a message, but in real life, for a minister who should be in cinema to make a change? This is shameful

    Lol! When the world says it’s ok, then you definitely know that as a son of God it is totally wrong. Deyemi, Deyemi, Deyemi, do not succumb to the standards of the world to gain fame. The one who sent you there did so for a reason. The day you stop glorifying his name, everything after hmmnn

    Interesting. I guess him experiencing fatherhood makes him more acutely aware that human beings are interconnected and are social animals hence this tribute emphasises the influence of associations and the people we relate with. Me, i’m more of the theory of self mastery/awareness/cognition/contentment before the external influences, but who cares either way?
    congratulations papa born boy! .
