Singer Gilad Milo pens down emotional message to son as he joins Israel Defense Forces

Kenyan-based Israeli diplomat-turned-singer Gilad Millo has penned down an emotional message to his Son as he joins the Israel Defense Forces.

In a post put up on his Instagram page, the Singer mentioned how hard it was to part ways with his 20 year old son, who made a decision to work for the Israel Military.

“I hugged you this morning for as long as I could until it was time to let you go 💟 How can a father possibly be prouder 🙏🏽 My son, my boy, my first born, my pride, my Omer 👑 sending you off today to join the Israel Defense Force, as a Paratrooper 🇮🇱 knowing that tomorrow Mom & I are on a plane back to Kenya, was one of the more difficult moments we've known since you came into this world a little over 20 years ago” reads part of his post.

Your very proud Dad

In his heartfelt message, Millo disclosed that Omer (his son) chose to return to their native country alone; a nation he represented for years as deputy head of mission at the Israeli Embassy in Nairobi.

“But this is the choice you made, to be a real Israeli, to return to #Israel alone and serve your country as a lone soldier and as you say, to aim as high as you can and give it your all 💪🏽 I ask God to protect and keep you healthy, safe, happy and strong! Counting the days till I can hug you again ❤ Love you to the moon and back - Your very proud Dad” shared Gilad Millo.

Diplomat

The Sema Milele hit-maker first came to Nairobi in August 1996 “I came to Nairobi first in August 1996, backpacking as a university student. My girlfriend and I took a month off and came to Kenya”.

Gilad Millo worked as a journalist, became a diplomat in 2003 serving in Nairobi and Los Angeles before leaving Israel’s Foreign Ministry in 2008 and settling in Nairobi permanently.
