Edmonds later played with funk performer Bootsy Collins, who tagged him "Babyface" because of his youthful look.

Babyface surprised fans in February by announcing his engagement in a BET interview with friend and collaborator Toni Braxton.

(born April 10, 1959), known professionally as Babyface, is an American singer, songwriter and record producer.

One of his first major credits as a songwriter for outside artists came when he wrote the tune "Slow Jam" for the R&B band Midnight Star in 1983.

The tune was on Midnight Star's 1983 double-platinum No Parking on the Dance Floor album, and while it never was a single, it received massive radio airplay and the song is still played on quiet storm radio stations.

He has written and produced over 26 number-one R&B hits throughout his career, and has won 11 Grammy Awards. Barbara was a production operator at a pharmaceutical plant.

Edmonds, who is the fifth of six brothers (including future After 7 band members Melvin and Kevon Edmonds, the latter of whom went on to have a modestly successful solo career), attended North Central High School in Indianapolis, and as a shy youth, wrote songs to express his emotions.

At one time, Teju made waves as an actor and stand-up comedian.

That was before he got tired of stage and television productions that yielded barely enough cash to keep body and soul together.

In the late 1980s, he contributed to the creation of new jack swing, writing and producing music for the likes of Bobby Brown, Karyn White, Pebbles, Paula Abdul, Michael Jackson and Sheena Easton.

In 1989, Edmonds co-founded La Face Records with Reid.
