D’banj says the aftermath of his son’s death has been “incredibly difficult”.


The Afrobeats star, real name Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, has been inactive on social media since his son died on June 24.

His late son, Daniel III, drowned in a swimming pool in his Ikoyi, Lagos residence.

The singer was reportedly in Los Angeles, US, for the BET Awards when the incident took place.


D’banj on Thursday posted on Instagram for the first time in a few weeks.

The ‘Oliver Twist’ singer wrote: “The past few weeks have been incredibly trying and difficult, but God’s love has kept me and my family going.

“I can’t thank my team enough and the incredible love from you all, May God keep us all.”


D’banj and wife Lineo Didi Kilgrow wedded in a secret ceremony in June 2016. Their deceased son is their only child.


Following Daniel’s death, the Lagos state police commissioner had invited the couple to file a report on the circumstances that led to the incident.

Chike Oti, the command’s spokesman, had said: “It is expected that when the mourning period is over, the family will formally report the circumstances that led to the unfortunate death of the little Daniel to the police.”
