Nigerian singer Davido and Chioma’s son was announced dead on Tuesday morning.
According to a source close to the heart-breaking incident, the Nanny was with Ifeanyi and the Chef came to join them. The Nanny was said to have moved slightly away to receive a call. When she returned, she couldn’t find Ifeanyi and assumed he was with the Chef, but the Chef said he had left Ifeanyi with her.
They began to frantically look for Ifeanyi all over the house for close to 20 mins until a security guard spotted him in the pool.
No one could explain how the boy got in the pool. Davido and Chioma were said to have returned from their trip to the devastating news. “Davido ran mad, He literally tore his clothes and wanted to run into the streets. He was held back. He and Chioma are inconsolable.”
The boy’s body has since been taken to the mortuary and there are indications that an autopsy will be done to determine the cause of death.
Friends, staff and colleagues of the singer have been banned from visiting Davido at his father’s house where he and Chioma are.
