    Like him, his older sister’s name is also Arabic. Both his parents practice the Islamic religion so, they probably went for an Arabic name for both their children.

    Further, he also has more siblings from his dad’s other relationship but their names haven’t been revealed yet. Almost a decade back, while having an exclusive talk with Complex, Gates’ musician dad said,

    “I got some children. I’m real, real close with them. I lay in the bed with them, hold them, love on them. It really doesn’t make sense to say [how many kids I have].”

    The Get in the Way singer added that though the public would see his other children (Khaza’s half-siblings) the media would be unaware of the fact that they are his children.

    Khaza Was 17 Months Old At The Time Of His Parent’s Marriage

    Khaza was born out of his parents’ wedlock. They only decided to get married after they welcomed their two little munchkins. In October 2015, the couple walked down the aisle, and at the time, their younger son was already 17 months old.

    His mom and dad first met in 2004 in Louisiana and they have been stuck to each other ever since they met. In fact, the pair shares an open relationship with mutual understanding. Lately, it was rumored that the two separated, however, going through Dreka’s Instagram, it seems like they are still together.
