Wesley and April had a son named Jelani during their marriage. Their son has appeared in a cameo role in Wesley's 1990 film 'Mo' Better Blues.'
Not much information is available regarding the personal and professional life of Wesley's ex-wife April. It is because she keeps a pretty low profile and prefers to be out of the limelight. This is why the details of her current life are under wraps.
Wesley was raised as a Christian when he was young. He converted to Islam in 1978 and was a follower of the religion for ten years until he left in 1988. 'Islam made me more conscious of what African people have accomplished, of my self-worth, and gave me some self-dignity,' he said of his experience as a Muslim.
