Nigerian music star, Wizkid on Monday deleted a promotional tweet about his album after the news of the death of Davido’s son surfaced on the internet.
Vanguard had reported that Davido and his partner, Chioma lost their three-year-old son, Ifeanyi who drowned in a swimming pool at the singer’s house in Banana Island area of Lagos State.
The ‘Essence’ crooner recently released a new single ‘Money & Love’. The single is off his album ‘More Love, Less Ego’ which the artist confirmed will be released on November 4th.
After releasing a promotional tweet about the album on Monday night, Wizkid immediately deleted it when the news of the death of Ifeanyi filtered in.
The Grammy-award winner’s action has since been applauded by many as a sign of respect to Ifeanyi.

@xothehybrid said,”Wizkid is so sensitive..remember when he gave reekado a knock on the head on Twitter cos he wanted to drop a song when the country was in a tight spot. Most actually dragged him for it..some even said he should go beg reekado.
