Davido, the Nigerian music superstar, has spoken out about his experience dealing with the devastating death of his son, Ifeanyi Adeleke.
On June 12, 2023, the musician spoke up on the enormous grief that has engulfed him after Ifeanyi’s sudden death in a recent podcast interview with Million Dollaz Worth Of Game.
The unfortunate occurrence happened on October 30, 2022, when Ifeanyi drowned in a pool at Davido’s Lagos house.
Despite his great loss, the artist has found comfort in his songs. He put his emotions into Timeless, his highly anticipated album, producing lively and powerful compositions that shocked those who expected sorrowful music.
Davido, despite his strong exterior, said that he still sobs every morning at the loss of his kid.
He shared, “I miss him every day, tears roll down my cheeks each morning, even though you can’t see it.”
In the middle of his turmoil, the Unavailable crooner recognizes his responsibilities to his loved ones, particularly Ifeanyi’s mother.
He understands the need to be strong not only for them but also for his fans worldwide. Davido expressed, “My son is watching over me. Besides supporting his mom, my primary duty, I must also be a source of strength for the world.”
The musician hoped that Ifeanyi and his late mother were dancing together in paradise.
He attributes his ability to rise above his grief to his unwavering faith in God, saying, “People witnessing my recovery journey see that it’s God’s doing. My wife and I relied on faith, and God proved His existence.”
