Nigerian Singer Davido’s 3-Year-Old Son Drowns in Home Swimming Pool

Nigerian singer Davido has experienced the tragedy of losing his son in the family home in Africa.

According to BCC News, the singer, whose real name is David Adeleke, and his fiancée Chioma Rowland, who is a popular chef and influencer lost their three-year-old son, Ifeanyi Adeleke. Police authorities confirmed that he drowned in the swimming pool in their Lagos home on Monday.

Police officers in Nigeria were questioning eight domestic workers after the discovery of the three-year-old boy.

Police spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin informed the media outlet that one of the workers on staff notified police at 10:00 p.m. local time on Monday night.

“We are reviewing the CCTV cameras to get additional information about the circumstances of his death,” Hundeyin said. “His body has been deposited in the morgue. We are in touch with his parents. In fact, they were with us last night.”

The popular afrobeat singer has three other children and just recently announced last month that he and his fiancee, Rowland would be getting married next year.

Davido just wished his son a happy third birthday on his Instagram account last week.

“I pray with all my heart that God grants you perfect health and pure happiness for as long as humanly possible. You will grow to be greater than Me , Happy birthday, son @davidifeanyiadeleke !!! #BIG3 🎂🎂🎂🎉🎉🎉🎉”
