The Nigerian singer lost his son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, after reports surfaced on the evening of 31st October 2022 that the three-year-old boy allegedly drowned in a private swimming pool at the family’s residence in Lagos.
According to reports, Davido paid the price of Chioma in order for their son to be traditionally recognized as son of the Nigerian musician.
“If he doesn’t marry her. The baby boy won’t be buried as an Adeleke. He will belong to chrome’s family And will be buried as a Rowland instead Remember chioma is igbo David is yuroba So he had to pay his bride price to be able to claim the son,” a social media user said.
Davido and Chioma for the first time were spotted publicly after their son’s death. The couple showed up Sunday morning for the inauguration celebration of David’s Uncle, Ademola Adeleke, as the 6th executive governor of Osun state.
Photos from the ceremony showed the couple had rings on their wedding fingers and this has once agains stirred rumours that the lovers tied the knot at private ceremony. Nigerian blogger, Tunde Ednut, who is close ally to Davido, also posted the photo of Davido and Chioma and highlighted on the ring on their fingers.
“Wait! Can you see it?” he captioned the post and added a ring emoji.
