Daniel Oyebanjo, aka D’banj Nigerian singer, has lost his son, Daniel Jr. The 13-month old boy reportedly drowned in the singer’s home in the Ikoyi area of Lagos during the visit of some friends of the family.
D’banj was said to be away for a musical award in Los Angeles, United States, when the incident happened.
The singer, who had yet to make any official statement, posted a cryptic message on his Instagram page on Sunday, which many of his followers, including celebrities, saw as a confirmation of the news.
Sonnie Badu Said: “It is with a heavy heart that I share this Sad news today on my page, that our brother has lost his first baby boy. My heart is broken and emotionally striken as I type this message because I believe this is not an experience any parent should go through.
