In contrast, Sakoya rarely mentions her child. In fact, the musician hasn't uploaded son Legend's picture in any of her social media. Neither has the singer been vocal about her personal life as of yet. Being born into the limelight sure has its own shortcomings and as Sakoya has been through it all, we can only assume why she's being so protective of her child's privacy.
