Oba Adedokun Abolarin

Oba Adedokun Omoniyi Abolarin, the traditional ruler of Orangun Oke-Ila in Osun state, has paid a tribute to Davido’s mum, Mrs Veronica Adeleke.

This comes after Davido’s son, Ifeanyi, 3, drowned in a swimming pool in their Banana Island mansion, Lekki, Lagos.

On Facebook, the traditional ruler lamented that while Veronica, Davido’s mother rescued his son from drowning 25 years ago, nobody was available to do the dame for Ifeanyi who drowned on Monday.

However, he did not explain the circumstances that led to the late Veronica’s intervention that prevented his son from drowning a quarter of century ago.

Oba Abolarin wrote: “Amen and Amen. So sad, it was David’s mummy, Late Dr Mrs Veronica Adeleke that rescued my own son inside the swimming pool, some twenty five years ago.

“I am sad, what Veronica did for my son years back, nobody, I mean nobody to play that same role for Veronica’s grandson, Ifeanyi!!! Who are we to query God, may his soul rest in peace and may Veronica’s soul continue to rest in peace. Fantastic woman!”.
