The four leading contenders for the 2023 presidential election have condoled with Afrobeats singer, Davido and his fiancée, Chioma Rowland on the tragic death of their son, Ifeanyi.
The sad news of the toddler’s demise emanated from a now-deleted Instagram post by actress, Eniola Badmus, on Monday night.
It went viral because of Badmus’ close relationship with Davido and his 30BG crew.
However, many yet doubted it until it was eventually confirmed on Tuesday morning by Lagos PPRO, Benjamin Hundeyin upon the arrest of the singer’s workers.
Ifeanyi, who clocked three on October 20 with a lavish party thrown to celebrate him, was reported to have drowned in the pool on Monday night while his parents were on a trip to Ibadan for a family function.
