On 20 October, when Davido and his wife, Chioma marked the third birthday of Ifeanyi Adeleke, their son, Davido made a simple request to God.

In a prayer he shared on Instagram, he asked God to allow the boy grow greater than he is.

“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 !”, the singer wrote.

But just 10 days after, God had a different idea. He took the boy away by drowning, causing anguish for the inconsolable parents, friends and relations.

Ifeanyi’s death brought back the memory of a similar tragic accident, death by accidental drowning of Dbanj’s one year old son.

The incident happened in Dbanj’s Lagos home in June 2018.
