Recall that the young lad, who turned 3 few days ago, passed away after drowning in the swimming pool in his father’s home in Banana Island on Monday, October 31. He was rushed to the hospital but was sadly pronounced dead on arrival.
Shortly after the report was shared online on Monday night, Wizkid took to his Twitter page around 11:33PM to promote his forthcoming album ‘More Love, Less Ego’ which is set to drop this Friday, November 4.
Though the news of Ifeanyi’s death was not yet confirmed at the time as netizens were waiting for his parents to release a statement about the tragic viral news, Wizkid, on seeing the commotion online, deleted the promotional tweet in less than a minute.
Wizkid’s action has sparked massive reactions online, as netizens commended him for reading the room and being sensitive enough to respect Davido in his trying time despite their alleged rift.
