It was actually after Kafui made public the ordeals she went through before having baby Lorde that all the fame started! And then the…
2. Brand Ambassador Thing Came
Lorde Pitcher is lucky enough to become a brand ambassador at just 4 months old! Producers of one of the best and most highly rated baby diapers, Royal Monopoly picked Lorde as the favorite face to market their product.

Lorde, together with her mum, has since then served as the face of Royal Monopoly baby diapers. The 18-month contract which is subject to renewal sees Baby Lorde and Kafui feature in the adverts of Royal Monopoly baby diapers on various platforms (billboard, video and radio jingles), documentaries and other promotions for marketing the product across the country.

“The KING is happy because today is his girlfriend’s birthday… Happy birthday to you, my beautiful in-law. May our good Lord protect and bless your new age.”
Lorde’s mum, Kafui gave a consenting response, thanking king Alfie. Also, Baby Lorde via her managed account also sealed the marriage talks as a “done deal”.
5. Lorde has been a Blessing to other Kids
On May 10, 2018, the PR Team for ABC Pictures Limited announced that her mum will be launching a new charity project tabbed, ‘Ghana Power Kids Charity Ball.’
