The traditional ruler of Orangun Oke-Ila in Osun state, Oba Adedokun Omoniyi Abolarin, shared his experience with Davido’s mum, Mrs. Veronica Adeleke before her passing.

This is coming hours after Davido’s son, Ifeanyi, 3, drowned in a swimming pool in their Banana Island mansion, in Lekki, Lagos.

The traditional ruler took to his Facebook page to share his story saying Veronica, Davido’s mother rescued his son from drowning 25 years ago.

Oba Adedokun further expressed disappointment over the fact that no one was present to play the same role the singer late mother played for his son.

In his words: “Amen and Amen. So sad, it was David’s mummy, the Late Dr. Mrs. Veronica Adeleke that rescued my own son inside the swimming pool, some twenty five years ago.

“I am sad, what Veronica did for my son years back, nobody, I mean nobody to play that same role for Veronica’s grandson, Ifeanyi!!! Who are we to query God, may his soul rest in peace and may Veronica’s soul continue to rest in peace. Fantastic woman!”.
