Fact Check: How Davido’s son, Ifeanyi Adeleke died



7 hours have gone by already and what I thought was a rumour has unfortunately and unbelievably become a reality.

Several reliable reports have it that Ifeanyi died by drowning at his Davido’s Banana Island home and was rushed to Evercare Hospital in Lekki where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

It was learnt that Davido and Chioma had travelled for a family gathering to Ibadan yesterday and had left Ifeanyi with his minders who can’t explain how he entered the pool without being noticed and drowned.

Davido’s son’s death has become the second most popular (Celebrity Son) in recent times in Nigeria after D’Banj lost his son some months ago in a similar situation (drowning in a residential swimming pool).

Unfortunately, this sad news is coming weeks after Chioma and Davido became closer again, and rumours have that they were already planning for their wedding come 2023.


Davido has gone through it. From losing his Crew Members, and Love ones to now losing his flesh and blood, his son.

May God grant them the fortitude to bear the loss. RIP Ifeanyi 🙏

I’ve searched everywhere to find the tiniest clue that this is fake news…

But everything points to the reality of this sad news…

As a father, I can’t imagine losing a son in such a terrific way… I can only imagine the pain of Davido and Chioma each time the images of their son drowning in a swimming pool replay in their mind. Part of them has died. It is impossible to heal from this pain.

As always, there’s a lesson to learn… This post can save another child’s life. Please read soberly:

When I installed a fence around my swimming pool, a female friend told me my pool no longer looked modern…

I told her about D-Banj whose son drowned in his swimming pool in 2018… I told her that male child are extremely unpredictable. Gladly, I convinced her that protecting a child’s life is better than a world-class-looking swimming pool. She ended up installing a fence around her pool too. One day, she found her child mysteriously alone at the poolside but fortunately, the fence stopped her from going inside the pool unattended. She WhatsApp me the scary picture with a “thank you for your advice”.

The door leading to my swimming pool is 247 locked. The only way a child can go to the swimming pool side is if an adult unlocks the door. There are 3 cameras connected to the internet with high alert mode watching every movement around the poolside. I receive alerts on my phone for every movement around the poolside. This level of security was inspired by D-Banj’s case. It broke me that what a father built for the pleasure of his family could end up causing the family the deepest pain. I decided never to let my wealth bring me sorrow.

If you have a swimming pool, you must implement EXTRA security and protection measures even if the extra measures distort the beauty of your space – this is the lesson every swimming pool owner should learn and Implement ASAP. This should be the last time we will lose a child in such a horrific manner.

While we wait for an official statement from the Adeleke’s, we can only pray and learn. Act immediately. Secure the lives of our children.

My heart goes out to the Adeleke’s. And to our son Ifeanyi, WE FAILED YOU. WE ARE SORRY SON 😢.
