Sad, sad, sad news for D’banj, his family, and everyone with a heart out there.
Nigerian singer, entertainer and entrepreneur, D’banj, and wife Lineo Kilgrow, have lost their one-year-old son, Daniel Oyebanjo III.
It’s also sad news that people will choose this time, or any, to blame the parents for this heavy loss, on bad parenting.
You have no right. Yes, you are mad. Even I am mad, that life can be this cruel. People make mistakes, people do things they regret, but never is there a moment of peace and sympathy from someone who would take out time to write to a grieving parent that he or she did not do the proper job of being a parent. You simply have no right.
Keep your thoughts and opinions to yourself if you do not have anything nice to say to the family who are blaming themselves more than anyone could right now.
Our heart goes out to D’banj and his family. May little Daniel’s sweet soul rest in perfect peace.
We pray that God gives them the heart to bear this loss.
The toddler reportedly drowned at a pool in the singer’s residence in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Although the news filtered in on Sunday evening, the singer confirmed the sad news in the early hours of Monday.
The singer took to his Instagram page to post a black image with the caption: “Trying Times. But my God is Always and Forever Faithful.”
The corpse of the child has been reportedly moved to the morgue.
D’banj is currently in Los Angeles to attend the 2018 BET Awards when the death of his son occurred.
The singer marked the first birthday of his son, in May.
Another singer, Davido, who won the Best International act at BET Awards on Monday morning, paid his condolence to Dbanj on his son’s death in his acceptance speech.
The singer’s other colleagues and fans alike have also been commiserating with him.
