Davido, Nigerian singer, has finally reacted to the death of Fortunate Peter, his official photographer better known as Fortune.
The photographer died while working at an undisclosed location in Lagos on Tuesday.
In a touching tribute via his Instagram page on Saturday, Davido described the deceased as “irreplaceable”.
He also recounted how the late photographer, who he said was earlier “a complete stranger” to him, became an integral part of his team.
“Fortune @fortunateumunname ….. I can’t believe you’re gone. Since we met you never left my side for one day… Your page says it all. You really were all about me like nothing else mattered,” he wrote.
“You went from a complete stranger to one of my closest confidants within weeks. There is nowhere I entered that you and your lens didn’t enter. I can’t even believe I’m writing a tribute to you right now… we still had so much more to do.
“Your workshops. Your studios. Trips. Shows. Scenes. Moments. All of it. I can’t believe you didn’t give me the chance to fulfill the rest of my promises to you.
“My heart is so heavy right now and I’m just so grateful I met you. You truly were the best kid. A rare breed and I’m so grateful that we got to travel the world and create so many iconic moments with you.”
The ‘OBO’ crooner also appreciated the deceased for his contributions to his career, saying he will make sure he is not forgotten.
“You are irreplaceable and you are gone now but I will make sure you are never forgotten! I swear it! This next one’s for you! RIP lil bro. Love you forever. #FortuneShotItAll,” he added.
Fortune’s death had come months after Davido also lost Obama DMW, his close associate, who died of heart failure.
