People are flocking to social media in support of Alicia Keys' son after he took to the stage to 'protect' his mum.
A recent worrying trend has crept in seeing some concertgoers fling things at performers while they're on stage.
Harry Styles fell victim in July when an object flew over the heads of other gig goers and hit him in the eye.
Subsequently, it's no surprise Keys' youngest son - eight-year-old Genesis - is feeling particularly protective of his mum.
Keys' husband - fellow musician The Real Swizzz (real name Kasseem Daoud Dean) - took to Instagram to share several photographs of his son and the 'Girl On Fire' singer on stage together at one of her shows for her Keys To The Summer Tour.
The images show Keys at the glittery grand piano singing along to the crowds, with Genesis stood just in front of her - his arms in his pockets and legs stood slightly wide apart, eyes firmly locked on the audience to spot any signs of trouble.
"He heard how people been acting at shows lately. My boy serious in real life," Swizz Beatz writes.
The caption reads: "My boy said I’m not playing no games on moms stage. He a real serious one.
"Thank you Gen we love you and your protection. He didn’t care she was live on stage."
People are flocking to the post in stitches over the eight-year-old's serious stance but also in praise of his urge to protect his mum.
One user said: "When the crocs in sport mode you know it’s serious business."
"@therealswizzz he wasn’t playing about that shirt swime he said matter fact security stand down tonight i got this," another added.
A third commented: "He must protect his momma at all costs. I absolutely love it. As a boy mom (well now man mom lol) he will be like that forever."
And a fourth perfectly summarised: "@therealswizzz this is so hilarious and also not funny at all. People have lost their minds."
Genesis isn't the only one to take action following the influx of performers getting attacked while on stage.
However, the eight-year-old certainly took a calmer approach than Cardi B who threw her microphone at a fan during a concert in Las Vegas after the audience member chucked their drink over the singer.
