Fetty Wap stopped through The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night and performed the hell out of “679.”
His debut album will be released next week and he’s been making himself a household name gearing up to it’s release.
But when he’s not turning up on our TVs, Fetty’s unknowingly inspiring kids.
Brenda Vaden, the mother of a young Fetty Wap fan, recently published an Instagram post expressing her gratitude to Fetty for giving her son confidence. Her son, Jayden, was born with retinoblastoma which caused him to lose one of his eyes. Fetty has a similar story, losing an eye at a young age due to glaucoma.
Brenda wrote, “Many close friends, and of course our family know that Jayden was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma at the age of 1. In result of that he had his right eye removed 2 weeks after his 1st bday. He’s worn a prosthetic eye since then. He has always been terrified of taking it out and would not be caught without it…and then comes along Fetty Wap… Similar to Jayden he lost an eye at a young age and along the way he decided that he didn’t want to wear his prosthetic eye anymore, so he stopped.”
She continued, “Thanks to Fetty Wap for saying F the world this is me, and for helping make our baby boy just a little more remarkable than he already is. And we’ll be purchasing his album, a small thank you to him for changing Jayden’s life forever.”
After hearing about Jaden, Fetty responded with a touching post of his own.
Awwww. Isn’t Fetty just…EVERYTHING?!!
