Davido, a popular Nigerian music musician, and his fiancée, Chioma Rowland, just lost their kid, Ifeanyi Adeleke. Ifeanyi Adeleke passed away on Monday, October 31st.
Ifeanyi Adeleke died a few days after his third birthday on October 20, according to information obtained by Naijanews360. He was declared deceased at Evercare Hospital in Lagos this evening.
Ifeanyi who just turned 3 was said to have died in a drowning accident at the family’s residence in Lagos, according to a family source who gave the information about the development.
The boy was inside the 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.”
Prior to Ifeanyi’s death, Davido was seen earlier today teaching him how to swim. In social media footage, the Electricity singer can be seen alongside Ifeanyi inside his mansion’s large pool.
Davido lifted the three-year-old youngster and told him to flap his legs in the water while giving him instructions. As the lively child flapped his legs, the music star carried Ifeanyi around the pool.
Davido, clearly thrilled with his son’s performance, was overheard remarking on how quickly he learned.
“This one go learn quick”.
Ifeanyi’s parents, Chioma and Davido, had lavishly celebrated his third birthday before his tragic and unexpected death.
