Her name is a mixture of Germanic and Kenyan words, Vada meaning “famous ruler” in the former and Wamwene, in the latter, is pronounced Wom Win Aye which means “Little girl that belongs to special people“.
Vada is the only child of Grammy-winning rapper Kid Cudi. He shares his daughter with his ex-girlfriend, Jacqueline Munyasya.
Vada’s father, Kid Cudi, first rose to fame in early 2008 after the release of his debut single Day ‘n’ Nite. Most of his albums – Man on the Moon: The End of Day (2009), Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager (2010), Kids See Ghosts (2018), and Man on the Moon III: The Chosen, to name a few – are massive hits that met with widespread critical acclaim.
Beyond his prolific musical output, Kid Cudi has also appeared on the big and small screen. Not only did he lead HBO’s How to Make It in America and IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang!, but he also starred in Need for Speed, Entourage, and more.
Though Vada’s father is a well-known name, nothing much is known about her mother. Her mother, Kid Cudi’s ex, prefers to stay away from the spotlight and has maintained a very low profile.
Vada’s parents reportedly had a short fling when the rapper was in an on-again, off-again relationship with entertainment attorney Jamie Baratta. He wanted shared custody of his daughter and fought the custody battle over the daughter throughout 2012.
At the time, reports surfaced that Cudi gave up the custody battle after his child’s mother, Jacqueline Munyasya, accused the rapper of being an absentee father, as well as having violent tendencies and a long history of consistent drug and alcohol abuse. But according to Cudi and his attorney, the rapper reached an amicable agreement with the mother and that both parents are fit to have custody of their child.
However, Vada is in her mother’s care, but Cudi gets to spend as much time as he can with his child. The rapper has since purchased a property in Chicago to be close to his daughter.
Vada Wamene Mescudi is an heiress to her father’s multi-million dollar empire. Her father, Kid Cudi, has an estimated net worth of $16 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
