Nigerian superstar, Davido has revealed that he has another son named Dawson, who resides with his mother in London.
KanyiDaily recalls that Davido’s three-year-old son, Ifeanyi Adeleke died on October 31, 2022, after he drowned in a swimming pooling in his father’s house in Banana Island, Lagos.
During a recent episode of the ABtalks podcast, Davido revealed that he misses Ifeanyi daily and that the sorrow of his son’s demise still brings tears to his eyes every morning.
While there have been rumors about Davido fathering a child with London-based makeup artist, Larissa Lorenco, the singer appears to have confirmed it by acknowledging the existence of his son, Dawson, who is older than his late son Ifeanyi.
Davido candidly discussed his children, saying that his daughter, Hailey, bears a striking resemblance to his beloved late mother, Veronica Adeleke.
The singer also revealed that he chose to name both Hailey and his first daughter, Imade in honor of his mom.
He said, “I named both of them [my daughters] after my mum. Hailey, she is the exact replica of my mum; my second daughter, she is just like my mum. It’s crazy. It’s like she came in her.
“I have a son too. He (Ifeanyi) has a little brother. He’s in London right now. He’s in London right now. Dawson,” Davido said.
