 Davido keeps mum over Ifeanyi, son reportedly drowned in swimming pool

Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, more commonly called Davido is currently trending in the online space due to reports that he and his fiancee, Chioma Rowland, have lost their son, Ifeanyi.

The news emanated from popular Nigerian actress and close friend of the singer, Eniola Badmus, in a now-deleted tweet.

However, Davido or anyone from his camp had yet to react to the development hours after the rumour of Ifeanyi’s death spread on social media.

According to unconfirmed reports, the three-year-old boy drowned in a pool at his father’s house in Banana Island on Monday.

It was learnt that quite a number of people at Davido’s house when the incident happened had been arrested.

The inconsolable singer was said to have been moved from the hospital his son was rushed to and taken to his father’s house.

However, Nigerians have taken to their various social media accounts to pray for the family while wishing that the news was not true.

Since the news of Ifeanyi’s rumored death became public knowledge, Nigerians, particularly entertainment lovers, had been outraged and traumatised by the development.

A number of celebrities have posted cryptic messages that appear to confirm the death of Ifeanyi. Some of them are comedians Ayo Makun and Lasisi Elenu, radio personality Daddy Freeze among others.

Makun, in an Instagram post early Tuesday, wrote, “The death of a child is unnatural, unfair, and tragic, this hit me so bad.”

Daddy Freeze, who went live on Instagram in the early hours of Tuesday morning said, “When the person you love is someone involved it becomes a heavy emotional burden. I am not confirming anything but bear with me I will not be live tonight.”

Lasisi Elenu also posted, “Father heal your children’s heart from this pain, strengthen them in such a dark and hurtful time oh Lord.”

Reality TV star and actress, Rosemary Afuwape, said on her Instagram story, “My heart can’t take this. This is so painfully unbearable. Chioma and Davido please accept my condolences. No amount of words can comfort your hearts. I am truly sorry for your loss.”

As of 1.28am, news of Ifeanyi’s rumored death was the most trending topic on Twitter.

The rumored death, however, emanated from a now deleted post from actress, Eniola Badmus, late Monday.

Nigerians, while reacting to Badmus’ post, criticised her for leaking such sensitive information to the public.
