David Adeleke, a Nigerian musician who is better known by his stage name Davido, has opened up about how his son Ifeanyi Adeleke’s death has affected him.
The superstar described how he was still able to create his fourth studio album, “Timeless,” after going through such a horrible ordeal.
Some fans expected Timeless to be full of gloomy songs, but Davido said he shocked them by incorporating “bangers” instead.
The OBO Crooner admitted that despite getting over the difficult time after his son’s death, he still sobs over it every morning.
He added that he must keep his composure for his wife Chioma and those who believe in him.
He said, “I miss him every day, there’s tears coming out of my eyes every morning, you don’t have to see it.
I look at myself in the mirror and I said apart from it just being about me, I know how many people love me, I know how many people are depending on me.
“My son up there is looking down at me. Apart from me being strong for his mom, which is my primary responsibility, I have to be strong for the world.
“A lot of people thought the album was just going to be a lot of sad songs, we gave them bangers on bangers.
“My son is dancing and my mom is dancing in heaven. So for people to see that it’s possible to stand up again and be able to work, it’s only God.
“Those were one of the things that and my wife relied on, God is real. Then everything just aligned back, we performed better, business is better.”
