Thank you for all the condolences. I think we missed the biggest lesson tho. My son did all he needed to do in his 10 days here on earth. He has now graduated and continuing to do work. He died in my arms and that feeling of energy will never leave me. Kai wants all of you to kno he’s doing great and wants to continue to inspire those who light is dim. It makes perfect sense to me why 2 spiritual loving and healing people like me and Soraya was given an angel like Kai and now we will use his energy to raise 11 to the best person she can be for ALL of us. Life is beautiful y’all and I want y’all to kno Soraya is at peace and is moving forward with huge smiles and A little baby running around thinking she grown 😁😂🤙🏿. Jus want to use my spotlight for happiness and growth and not anything less than. Thank you! Now let’s get back to our soul purpose – Kai Love

“He died in my arms and that feeling of energy will never leave me. Kai wants all of you to kno he’s doing great and wants to continue to inspire those who light is dim,” he wrote.

Broadus continued that he and mother Soraya Love will “use his energy” to raise daughter Elleven to be “the best person she can be for ALL of us.”

Other members of the family have expressed grief over the situation, too.

Brother Cordell Broadus wrote “Long Live My Nephew Kai” on Instagram, while Broadus’ mother Shante Broadus dedicated a cover of “The Love We Had Stays on My Mind” by The Dells to the newborn.

Snoop Dogg, though, hasn’t directly commented on the situation — but he did post a video saying to trust God shortly after the news was announced.

The family has not publicly stated the cause of Kai’s death.
