Ifeanyi Adeleke, the first child of Nigerian-American artist Davido, has died in a swimming pool accident. On Tuesday, November 1, it was reported that the singer’s 3-year-old son, who he shares with Chioma Rowland, has drowned in a swimming pool at his father’s mansion in Lagos.
The boy was reportedly taken to hospital after being dragged from the pool, but medics ruled he was dead. Several celebrities and admirers of the couple expressed their condolences to the relatives. Ifeanyi was Davido and Chioma’s first child in their five-year partnership.
Davido and Chioma had an on-again, off-again relationship over the years.
Davido and Chioma are now together, although their relationship has been tumultuous for many years. The couple started dating in late 2017, but finally revealed their relationship a year later. According to reports, Chioma and the singer were madly in love and made time for each other despite their hectic schedules. After many months of dating, the Electricity singer proposed to Chioma and they got married. Before getting married, they welcomed their first child, Ifeanyi, and had family introductions.
They were supposed to get married in 2020, but their plans were postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Things started to go wrong in mid-2020 when reports spread that Chioma had left the artist’s apartment. The pair apparently stopped following each other on Instagram, with some followers claiming that Chioma was a victim of domestic violence during her relationship with the musician. But she quickly dispelled the rumors. Chioma, on the other hand, has deleted all the photos of the singer from her Instagram account. In December of that year, rumors circulated on the internet that the singer had spent Christmas and New Years with model Mya Yafai. Two months later, in February, photos of the apparent couple leaving a bar in the United States went viral.
Davido and Chioma are eventually reunited.
Despite their fame, the couple appeared to have resolved their issues and were seen together celebrating their son’s birthday in October 2021, marking their first public appearance. Things began to fall into place when Chioma and their child were photographed attending the singer’s performance in London in March 2022. According to reports, the performer was sending his private plane to Nigeria to transport the couple to the spot.
Davido and Chioma have since been seen together several times at public events. Because of Chioma, the singer is said to have visited church for the first time in three years in September 2022.
