Rihanna and A$AP Rocky Throw Wu-Tang Style Party For Son’s First Birthday

May 16, 2023 - Niani Patterson

It feels like it was only yesterday when we reported on the birth of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s first baby. Now the couple is celebrating their baby, RZA Mayers‘ first birthday while expecting their second child.

In addition to his name, Baby RZA’s first birthday party paid homage to hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan. Baby RZA sported a black and yellow Wu-Tang themed jersey. Mom, 35, sported ODB inspired braids and dad, wore a pink and blue fur coat for a 90s aesthetic.


“WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN.’ HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY TO MY 1ST BORN,” Rocky captioned his Instagram photo dump. The caption is one of the most famous lines spoken by ODB at the Grammy Awards, and a mantra that has followed the Wu-Tang Clan.

For nearly a year, Rihanna kept RZA’s name under wraps. She hinted at the name by wearing clothing repping Wu-Tang Clan, which comprises RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and the late Ol’ Dirty B**tard, multiple times since giving birth.

After The Daily Mail obtained a copy of his birth certificate, news quickly hit the internet that his full birth name is RZA Athelston Mayers. He is named after rapper RZA, the leader of Wu-Tang Clan.
