Nigerian entertainers have sent condolences to Davido and Chioma Rowland over the death of their son.
Singer Paul Play Dairo said: “I’m really lost for words. This is really painful. Take heart, David.”
Actor Williams Uchemba wrote on Instagram: “I said I won’t believe anything on social media until I personally confirm myself. I prayed for it to be a lie. I am upset, pained, and confused. Nobody deserves to feel this pain.
“Please say a prayer for David, Chioma, and the entire family. Nobody deserves this kind of pain. Rest up little one.
However, Davido or anyone from his camp are yet to react to the development hours after the rumor of Ifeanyi’s death spread on social media.
