How Davido and Chioma’s 3-year old son, Ifeanyi died in Lagos swimming pool
Ifeanyi was said to be under water for a very long time before being spotted.
He was rushed to Lagoon Hospital but confirmed dead on arrival.
SKYTREND NEWS reports that the boy drowned a few days after his third birthday on October 20.
A viral video had earlier shown Davido teaching his son how how to swim. In another video, Davido was seen one in the big pool in his mansion with Ifeanyi.
Teaching his son some swimming skills, he carried the three-year-old boy and made him flap his legs in the water while he gave him instructions on what to do.
The singer later carried his son around in the pool as the boy continued to flap his legs.
An Instagram post by ace comedian, Ayo Makun, populary known as AY also confirmed the sad incident in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
According to information gathered, the young lad who just celebrated his third birthday was said to have drowned in a swimming pool on Monday night.
Ifeanyi was pronounced dead at the Lagoon Hospital in Ikoyi upon arrival.
Makun wrote in the post, “The death of a child is unnatural, unfair and tragic. This hits me hard.”
Efforts to reach the Lagoon Hospital as of the time of filing this report proved abortive.
Davido and his partner, Chioma celebrated the boy’s third birthday in a grand style a couple of days ago.
While some of his fellow entertainers like actress, Eniola Badmus and serial entrepreneur, Toyin Lawani posted the picture of a broken heart emoji on their social media pages which they later pulled down, others like former Big Brother Naija reality star, Dorathy Bachor, expressed shock at the news.
Ifeanyi’s death is happening four years after singer, Dapo Oyebanjo aka DBanj lost his first child in a very similar circumstance.
It would be recalled that a similar fate befell the popular Afrobeats artiste whose son also drowned in a swimming pool.
The toddler was a bit over a year old when he drowned at pool in his father’s residence in Ikoyi.
May Ifeanyi’s soul rest in perfect peace.
