Barely four days after Nigeria’s Afrobeat singer, David Adeleke, aka Davido, took his son, Ifeanyi Junior, on swimming lessons in his Banana Island house, the three-year-old boy on Monday evening went underwater for a very long time, leading to his death.
Davido could be seen in a video on Ifeanyi’s page having fun in the pool with his son from Chioma Rowland, as he carefully showed him how to swim and moved him around in the pool.
In the video, Davido lifted his son while the young lad struggled to master the coordination of his feet.
At this point, nobody thought it was teaching too early for Ifeanyi but a norm in the Banana Island residence of the artiste till he drowned yesterday evening.
Ifeanyi was born on 20th October 2019, which made it three years since Davido and Chioma welcomed their first son, Ifeanyi.
Davido’s son was pulled out from the swimming pool and rushed to Lagoon hospital where he was confirmed dead on his arrival.
Late Ifeanyi lived in Nigeria with his mother (Chioma) but traveled the world whenever his dad has musical shows or for holidays.
The proud parents took to Instagram last year to celebrate Ifeanyi’s two-year-old birthday.
“Happy 2nd Birthday to my loving Son David Ifeanyichukwu Adedeji Adeleke !!! You will grow to be greater than me Amen! You will grow to make all of us proud!!! Stubborn!! DADDY LOVES YOU SO MUCH ?????????? OSUN BOY”, Davido wrote.
While Chioma wrote; “Happy birthday to the perfect little man! I love you so much, watching you grow soothes my soul! To my loving, funny, attentive, caring son, I pray that God watches over you forever and grants you long life, you’re gonna be so great I know!.”
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) recalls that Davido had been filmed having a great time with his second daughter, Hailey Adeleke, at a swimming pool.
In the video which surfaced online, the little girl was seen telling her father, who was resting in his room, to come and teach her how to swim.
The singer did not hesitate to fulfill his fatherly duties despite the fact that he seemed tired.
The duo were both spotted swimming together in the adorable video.
