The death of Nigeria’s pop star Davido’s son Ifeanyi came as a shock to the whole world after he drowned in a pool in his father’s house in Banana Island.
How the three-year-old boy ended up dead in a swimming pool while under the care of his nanny was unclear.
A close family friend explained to a Nigerian blog ‘lindaikejiblog.com’ what happened on that day that led to the death of the boy.
The nanny was with the little boy right before the house cook came to join them. She later went to receive a call and was certain that the boy was under the chef’s care.
When she returned, Ifeanyi was not around and so she assumed that he was with the chef since she had earlier left them together.
The chef said that he had left the boy with the nanny and that’s when they started looking for him.
“They began to frantically look for Ifeanyi all over the house for close to 20 mins until a security guard spotted him in the pool. No one could explain how the boy got in the pool.”
A few weeks earlier, Davido had penned a heartfelt birthday message to his son on his Instagram page.
“I pray with all my heart that God grants you perfect health and pure happiness for as long as humanly possible. You will grow to be greater than Me, Happy birthday, son.”

Nine people including his nanny, the house cook and other house staff members had been arrested by the police in Lagos State in connection with Ifeanyi’s death.
Davido and his lover Chioma have not yet commented on the death of their little baby boy. However, investigations are still ongoing.
