Nigerian afrobeat singer Davido suffered serious heartbreak after the death of his son Ifeanyi Adeleke.
The Dami Duro singer’s 3-year-old son was confirmed dead after he drowned in a private swimming pool at the family’s residence in Lagos.
Here is further information regarding the death of the musician and philanthropist’s only son.
When did Davido’s son Ifeanyi die?
According to a source, David Adeleke’s son passed away on October 31, 2022, after drowning in a private pool at the family’s home in Lagos.
They learned that the little boy had been drowned in the water for an excessive amount of time. Despite having been transported to the hospital immediately, doctors were unable to revive him.
According to information gathered by Mandy News, Davido was traveling to the United States at the time the incident took place. Chioma was thought to have left Ifeanyi with a female domestic helper before traveling to Ibadan.
Ifeanyi was declared dead on the spot.
A family member confirmed his death to People Gazette, saying in a statement:
- “The boy was inside water for too long and they pulled him out and rushed him to the hospital,”
- “By the time they rushed him to Lagoon Hospital it was already too late.”
Another musician, Dapo Oyebanjo, better known by his stage as D’banj, lost his son in June 2018 after the boy drowned in the family pool.
How old was he?
Ifeanyi unfortunately passed away at age 3.
Ifeanyi, Davido’s third child with Chioma, died eight days after celebrating his third birthday on October 20 and receiving heartfelt congratulations from his parents on their Instagram pages.
Does Davido have other kids?
Three kids are the result of Davido’s past relationships.
Imade is the name of his first child, a girl who is close friends with Tiwa Savage’s son.
Heiley, Imade’s sister, was born soon after in the US with her mother Amanda.
Ifeanyi, a son who is now deceased, was born to another of his girlfriends, Chioma Rowland.
