David Adedeji (born November 21, 1992), better known by his stage name Davido, is a Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, and record producer. His music combines traditional African elements with global mainstream pop.
Davido won the Next Rated Award at The Headies in 2012 after releasing “Dami Duro,” the second single from his debut studio album Omo Baba Olowo (2012). He had a string of hit singles between 2013 and 2015, and he signed a record deal with Sony Music in January 2016.
He then founded the record label Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), which signed Dremo, Mayorkun, Peruzzi, and Liya. In July 2016, Davido signed a record deal with Sony's RCA Records.
Who murdered Davido's Son Ifeanyi?
Ifeanyi Adeleke drowned a few days after his third birthday, on October 20. Prior to Ifeanyi's death, Davido was seen earlier today teaching him how to swim.
In social media videos, the Electricity singer can be seen with Ifeanyi inside his mansion's large pool.
Davido carried the three-year-old boy and told him to flap his legs in the water while giving him instructions. As the energetic boy flapped his legs, the music star carried Ifeanyi around the pool.
Davido, clearly impressed by his son's performance, was overheard remarking on how quick he learned. “This one needs to learn quick,” he said. Ifeanyi's parents, Chioma and Davido, had lavishly celebrated his third birthday before his tragic and unexpected death.
Davido and Chioma's death comes just years after Nigerian singer Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, better known as D'banj, and his wife Lineo Didi lost their first child in a drowning accident in 2018.
Daniel Oyebanjo III, who was only a year old, drowned in a swimming pool at Dbanj's home in ikoyi, Lagos state.
