Lagos, Nigeria – Popular music star David Adeleke, widely known as Davido, and his partner Chioma Rowland have deactivated their son’s Instagram account following his death.
It would be recalled that Davido, 29, and his fiancée Chioma Rowlan, 27, opened the Instagram account @davidifeanyiadeleke for their son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, on October 20 this year when he turned three and within a short time, it had garnered a massive following.
They, however, deactivated it barely three weeks later, following the October 31, 2022 death at their home. The three-year-old, Ifeanyi was reported dead after drowning in the pool.
Police later confirmed the reports and detained domestic staff who were at the residence for questioning as they investigated the child’s death, and so far six out of the eight staff who were in custody have been released.
The baby’s nanny and family cook are still being held and could be charged with negligence as police make arrangements to conduct an autopsy.
Davido has three children, his late son and two daughter with three different women.
In 2018, a similar incident happened when Nigerian music star Daniel Oyebanjo, alias D’banj, lost his son Daniel Jr. in a swimming pool at the singer’s home in Lagos while the artiste was away for a musical award in Los Angeles, United States.
Following the death of Ifeanyi, Davido and Chioma have received condolence messages from celebrities, politicians, and fans in Nigeria and across the globe.
