Nigerian Afrobeats star, Davido, has shared his emotional struggle after losing his son, Ifeanyi, who drowned in a swimming pool at his Lagos home in October 2022.
The singer, whose real name is David Adeleke, told Omega in a recent interview that he still sheds tears every morning when he thinks of his son’s death.
He said he decided to make upbeat songs for his latest album ‘Timeless’ instead of sad ones, because he wanted to be strong for himself, his son’s mother, and his fans.
He said, “I miss him every day, there are tears coming out of my eyes every morning, you don’t have to see it.
“I look at myself in the mirror and I said apart from it just being about me, I know how many people love me, I know how many people are depending on me.
“My son up there is looking down at me. Apart from me being strong for his mom, which is my primary responsibility, I have to be strong for the world.”
Davido also said he believes his son and his late mother, Mrs Veronica Adeleke, are enjoying his music in heaven.
