Dot Da Genius made a post on Instagram saying happy birthday to his wife. The photo showed a picture of Dot and Jhene Aiko on their wedding day.
“Happy Birthday to my gorgeous wife,” the WZRD member wrote. “Happy to be on this quest [with] you!”
This Instagram post is the first public confirmation that the two are actually married. Rumors surfaced in January 2015 about the couple’s marriage, but nothing certain was ever confirmed about their relationship status. Dot Da Genius seemingly let it slip in December 2014 when he congratulated Aiko on her Grammy nomination, calling her his wife. He would end up deleting that Instagram post, but the caption still remained on his Twitter feed.
Jhene Aiko and Dot Da Genius managing to keep their marriage a secret, at least publicly, for this long is quite an accomplishment. Considering an artist’s need for a presence on social media and both being involved in the music industry, it is shocking that it has taken this long to get out to the public.
Back on the business side of things, Jhene Aiko recently made her return with a new track called “B’s & H’s (Bitches & Hoes).” Aiko had performed the song at live shows, but only released the proper audio during her appearance on Soulection’s Beats 1 Radio show. The singer is reportedly working on a new album, which will be the follow-up to her major label debut Souled Out.
