Yinka Davies, an ace Nigerian singer, has lost Jeremiah, her first child who was 27.
The gifted vocalist cum lyricist broke the sad news in an emotional Instagram tribute on Tuesday.
Jeremiah breathed his last on Friday — about three weeks to his 28th birthday billed for February 21.
He died after a 10-month battle with Autoimmune, a health condition in which the body’s immune system malfunctions and attacks its own tissues.
In the tribute, accompanied by a picture of the deceased, the songstress appreciated those who stood by her family amid her son’s battle for his life until he eventually passed away.
“For those who held you in their hearts, Those you waved at on your strolls. For those who cried the tears they couldn’t hold back, because you are no more here,” she wrote.
“For those who washed you when you were weak, those who were scared to see you ill. For those who thought you madly stubborn because you, wouldn’t take another pill.
“I salute them all, who shared you with me, paying for your bills, calling on others to give their dimes, I appreciate the toils and tears and all the memories you left for them. Leaving only me.”
The 50-year-old singer has had an illustrious music career with a string of awards and recognitions to her name.
