Who Are Gus Edwards Parents?
Gus Edwards was born to his parents Mamie and Sackie Edwards on April 13, 1995. The civil war was still raging when Edwards was born in Liberia. The Edwards family emigrated to the United States in search of a better life.
They arrived at Staten Island, New York, and more specifically in Park Hills, which is noted for its untamed landscape. It was challenging to cram the family of seven into a two-bedroom apartment.
Edwards is now able to ensure that Mamie and Sackie enjoy a spacious home of their own.
