Grief-stricken Davido, chioma staying strong for each other

....No visitors, no calls for now, the couple says

Singer to make official statement soon

By Segun Adebayo

Nigerian music star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido and his fiancée, Chioma, are staying strong for each other following the death of their son, Ifeanyi, Per Seconds News has learnt.

Ifeanyi had drowned in a swimming pool at Davido’s Banana Island palatial home on Monday (October 31) and have both been out of sight and stayed off social media since then.

A source who is privy to happenings inside the camp of the music star on Friday said Davido and his woman are staying close to each other and are not receiving visitors who are constantly calling to pay them a visit.

The source, who broke the news of Ifeanyi’s death to Per Seconds News on Monday, said Davido has been dealing with every moment with the help of his family who has remained close to him since the tragic incident occurred.

The current state of mind of the singer and Chioma has, however, been unknown to many as the singer or his wife has made any public appearance or posts on social media since the ugly incident.

It was reliably gathered that repeated calls were ignored by the griefing parents, as many people who tried to speak with Davido could not reach him as of the time of writing this story, the source said.

“Only his close family members could get through to him or see him since Monday. People shouldn’t expect them to take all calls or make any comment yet.

“I am sure that with time, we will all hear from our favourite music star who has made millions across the world proud through his music.”

Per Seconds News also learnt some of his colleagues, including the big artistes within and outside Nigeria have made attempts to get through to him but to no avail.

The mood in the 30BG camp has not been what it used to be as everyone await Davido’s next plans and official statement.
