His mum, Nicola could not hide her excitement as she took to Instagram to share the good news. Her words, “My son may you walk after God, fear Him, keep His commandments and obey His voice. My God, may Shiloh always serve you o’ Lord and hold fast to you. My heart is filled with gratitude, I thank you Father for this blessed day.Thank you to my family for all the love and support you’ve given me and Shiloh. Shiloh Langa, I pray you will follow your name, my sunshine and peace. Mommy loves you so much my son…to many more milestones together my boy. Gods grace and mercy all the days of your life. I love you. #Shilohsbaptism.”
