D’banj: Singer loses his 13-month old son in drowning accident

Nigerian pop star D’banj has lost his 13-month old son Daniel Oyebanjo III.

According to reports, the unfortunate incident happened on Sunday, June 24, 2018. It is said that little Daniel drowned in D’banj’s Ikoyi residence in the afternoon. His body has been moved to a morgue in Ikeja GRA, Lagos.

D’banj who is currently in America for the BET Awards has posted a black photo on his Instagram page with the caption “Trying Times. But my God is Always and Forever Faithful.


Daniel Oyebanjo III celebrated his 1-year-old birthday last month.

Our thoughts and prayers are with D’banj and his wife.

A source close to the family stated that the kid died while his father was away in Los Angeles to witness the 2018 BET Awards, which saw Davido emerge Best International Act.

The source also revealed that the kid was playing with a couple of family friends who paid them a visit at their residence yesterday.

When they got carried away, the little boy wandered off into the backyard where he fell into the pool and drowned.

The boy’s body was later found inside the swimming pool by his mother who thought she left him with grown kids believing they were capable of taking care of him.

He was immediately rushed to the hospital in an unconscious state where he was certified dead. The body of the late infant has been transferred to the mortuary.

All the while, his father D’banj was in far away Los Angeles California.

This is really sad!!!

May God comfort their hearts…
