Success of my album helping me heal from losing my child – Davido
Nigerian afrobeats superstar, David Adeleke, aka Davido, has said the success of his fourth studio album ‘Timeless’ is helping him to heal from the pain of losing his three-year-old son, Ifeanyi Adeleke.
He stated this in a recent interview with Hot 107.9 FM, Atlanta, United States.
He said it took him three months to start recording songs for his album after his son drowned in a pool at his residence in Banana Island, Lagos State, in October 2022.
Davido said, “It is a special album to me, you know what I’m saying. Of course, after taking a long break, just coming back to having people really m*ss with the music. You know, sometimes you do an album, you probably get like four or three on there that are like big singles…”
When asked how he is feeling now, the OBO crooner said, “It hasn’t been easy. I just thank God for being able to do my job, to sit here talk to you. There was a point that I felt I wouldn’t be able to do my job. So, I’m just happy I’m able to be creative again.
“The success of the album has been part of my healing process. After like three months [after Ifeanyi’s demise] I was able to work again. Shootouts to all the producers that came through.”
