Ini Edo has reacted to the “unimaginable tragedy” that so many Nigerians across the world woke up to see in the news and on social media. Nigerian singer, Davido lost his son, Ifeanyi Adeleke after he drowned in a pool at his father’s house in Banana Island while the “Assurance” hitmaker and his fiancée, Chioma Rowlands were attending a family gathering at Ibadan, Oyo state.

According to the popular Nollywood actress, she was yet to recover from the death of her friend’s teenage son only to hear of Davido’s son.
“My friends teenage son just last week passed in the United States.While playing football for his school, he scored a goal with his head, developed a seizure then slipped into coma and died a few days after …. I have not been able to come to terms with how the mother who had been left alone to cater to those kids from an early age is living with this devastating death..
“Now this ….. this is beyond painful, it’s too painful to comprehend, Unimaginable tragedy, The hurt is deep, This world scares me shitless , it’s depressing, it’s saddening .. No body deserves this kind of pain.. Still Lord… I look to You”.
