Since the death of Davido’s son, international and local celebrities, footballers, politicians, etc., have sympathised with the grieving couple. However, Afrobeat singer Seun Kuti stands as a dark horse of the lot for refusing to mourn with Davido and Chioma.
He has been dragged by Instagram users calling him cold-hearted for sharing an article about hungry children in Nigeria rather than expressing sympathy for Ifeanyi.
Seun shared a screenshot of a report that stated: “Over one in 10 children in Nigeria die before their fifth birthday due to acute hunger-Report,” while Nigerians grieve the loss of Davido‘s son.
In the comment section, several social media users fired Seun for behaving inappropriately. However, he has reacted to the comments and explained why did refused to send his condolences.
Responding to social media knocks, the Egypt 80 band leader indicated in a video that he wasn’t required to post about the boy to express his grief.
He claimed that since he had never ‘promoted Davido’s accomplishment on his page, his son’s passing shouldn’t have been the first thing he would announce.’
He stated that he would instead visit Davido to express his sympathies.
He added that while he had never instructed anyone not to mourn Ifeanyi, others should no longer be told how to grieve.
He emphasised that it is not his nature to ‘publicly grieve the loss of someone.’
