Fetty Wap Meets Fan He Inspired To Face The World Without Prosthetic Eye

Fetty Wap finally got to meet the young fan who he inspired to face the world without his prothetic eye.

The “Trap Queen” rapper lost his left eye as a young boy and refuses to wear a prosthetic eye in place of the missing one. The rapper’s distinct look has caught the attention of many but it means the most to one fan in particular, 11-year-old Jayden Burgos.

Burgos wore a prosthetic eye for years after losing his eye to retinoblastoma two weeks after his first birthday – but when he saw that Wap was also missing an eye, he decided to go to school without wearing his prosthesis.

“I’m happy I got to meet Jayden and his family,” Wap said in an interview with People Magazine. “He is a really cool kid! It meant a lot to me personally to finally make his wish happen. It’s definitely a day we’ll both remember!”

Jayden’s mother was also very excited that her son got to meet his hero: “Hearing Fetty telling Jayden to ‘stay different, stay living, enjoy life’ and Jayden telling us when he first saw Fetty coming up the stairs his ‘nervousness got released’ he was so happy to see Fetty he just got up and hugged him. Thanks to all that made tonight happen. My heart is full for my baby boy.”
