Every celebrity kid shows a keen interest in their parents’ careers and wants to be like them. But as you know, ‘Exceptions are always there’; Seven Sirius Benjamin is one of them. He is the son of the famous American singer Erykah Badu and the versatile rapper André 3000.
Seven has quite a different life than others. When everyone is spending most of their time on social media and posting pictures/videos, Seven is busy making his life happier. We can say, he is actually living his life while being away from social media.
Besides being born into a family of singers, he has never been inclined towards making a career in singing. However, his parents never forced him to get into singing. Also, there is not so much on the internet about the singers’ kid, but we can give you some additional information from his mother’s posts. Firstly, have a read about Seven Sirius Benjamin’s early life.
Seven Sirius Benjamin was born in Dallas, ‘the third largest city of Texas’ in the United States of America, on November 18, 1997. In addition, he was born to Erykah Badu and André 3000, as already stated above. From the information gathered from his mother’s social media, we learned that Seven has not been to school since he was a toddler. In fact, his mother only taught him till first grade.
Moreover, Seven is the first child of Erykah and André, and he has two siblings named Puma Sabti Curry and Mars Merkaba Thedford from her mother’s relationship with different partners.
We do not know the exact reason, but Seven Sirius Benjamin did not attend school until first grade. According to his mother’s posts, we have got this much information about his education. Her mother used to teach him from his kindergarten days to first grade. Maybe, his mother thought that she could give better education to him until the first standard, or could be other unknown reasons. In addition, Erykah stated that he used to top the class and has always been a well-disciplined student.
Further, she said, Seven got his education from a high school in the city he was born. The exact name of the high school has yet to be discovered.
Later, he attended the Botany program again at a college whose name was not disclosed. Seven was more inclined towards getting a good education following discipline and rules. Maybe, for this reason, he never created any account on social media while being an academic person.

She also mentioned that she also did not live with his father. But besides this, she shared a good friendship with André while she was raising Seven.
“We’re very dedicated parents”. “From the day I got pregnant, we decided we would make this human being that we brought into this world together. It’s really natural for him to be here [in Dallas]. I think it’s somewhat of a sacrifice for him. We don’t take it for granted. You know, I didn’t grow up with a father, a lot of my cohorts didn’t grow up with a father. I think that it’s natural for fathers to take that much of an initiative to be in their child’s life.” We can’t get enough of the amazing friendship and parenting relationship that these two have for the sake of their son!
