His name is Femi, the first child, and son to the renowned Nigerian R&B singer, Darey Art Alade. 

The lad travelled all by himself a few weeks ago to Barcelona to feature in his first international tournament. Femi plays for FCBarcelonaEscola which is the flagship FC Barcelona school aimed at boys and girls between 6 and 18 years of age.

The proud father, Darey Art Alade couldn't contain his excitement at his son's ability to travel to Barcelona all by himself and abandoning him, an Arsenal fan here in Nigeria.

'My #MCM is our little boy who's fast becoming a fine young man already! Travelled alone to Barcelona and abandoned us (family and Arsenal ????) and is playing his first international tournament right now in @fcbarcelona Escola ???????????????? #ProudMom #ProudDad cc @deolaartalade,' Darey captioned the picture.
