We are sending our condolences to the family of Nigerian Afrobeat singer Davido and his family after it has been reported that his 3-year-old son passed away.
According to reports, the toddler drowned in his family’s home pool in Lagos, Nigeria. The boy was underwater for a long period of time before he was pulled out of the water and rushed to the hospital. He would later be announced dead on arrival.
Lagos police released a statement about the incident. “Domestic staff at Davido’s home have been taken to the station to give their own account of what happened,” Lagos State Police Command spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin said. He continued, “If after they all give their own account of what happened and after preliminary investigations, if anyone of them is found culpable, the person will now be placed under arrest.”
This tragedy happened a few days after the toddler’s third birthday. The family has not released a statement yet but it has also been reported that Davido nor his wife were home during the time of the incident.
We will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.
