Nigerian musician Davido has lost his son Ifeanyi.
The three-year-old drowned in a private swimming pool at the family’s residence in Lagos, according to a family source who informed Peoples Gazette about the development.
“The boy was inside water for too long and they pulled him out and rushed him to the hospital,” the family source said under anonymity to await an official statement. “By the time they rushed him to Lagoon Hospital it was already too late.”
Ifeanyi Adekeke was born on October 20, 2019, by Davido’s girlfriend Chioma Rowland.
Another source close to the family said Davido was travelling in the United States when the incident happened. Chioma was believed to have travelled to Ibadan and left the child with a female domestic assistant.
The development comes two years after another artist Dapo Oyebanjo, D’banj, lost his son, who similarly drowned in the family swimming pool.
