D’Banj’s son Daniel Oyebanjo III died after he drowned in a swimming pool at the family residence in Ikoyi.
Here is a photo of D’Banj posing beside the swimming pool in his house.
The customized swimming pool has D’banj’s signature DB logo engraved at the bottom.
The music star had taken to his Instagram page on April 1st to post this photo of himself standing beside the pool.
Reports say this is the same swimming pool where his son’s tragic death occurred.
The corpse of the child has been reportedly moved to the morgue.
D’banj was 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.
Meanwhile some insensitive fans are throwing tantrums and blaming the couple for the child’s death.
One Sheun on Nairaland wrote “But was no one around? Kids shouldn’t be left alone around basins of water not to talk of pools that big. This is carelessness on someone’s part. I learnt D’Banj isn’t in the country. Please we need to be careful with kids especially around bodies of water, even ordinary a bathtub filled with water can drown a kid. I hate seeing/hearing kids die cos of avoidable causes. KokoMaster sorry, may God provide a lasting child for you.”
While one Nassbros wrote”Imagine the agony the little boy must have gone through with all that water rushing into his lungs and him helplessly struggling for life cry cry
Honestly, if we had any laws in Nigeria, Dbanj should be seriously questioned and punished without mercy.
A baby must be under watch 2/4/7. Some people have absolutely no idea of what fatherhood and parenthood entails.
They think having a baby is like one of the many trophies and awards in their cupboards to flaunt and showcase to evryone, with no babycare and safety knowledge. SMH”
One Almijud wrote “RIP. But where was the mother when it happened? the only thing today ladies r good at is fighting for gender equality when they can not play their part as mothers properly.
Lesson: Marry responsible ladies!”
