Davido’s first daughter, Imade, whom he shares with babymama Sophia Momodu, has written a short letter to commemorate his 30th birthday today, November 21st, 2022, as well as to pay tribute to her late brother, Ifeanyi Adeleke.
Imade Adeleke, who had taken a hiatus from social media following Ifeanyi’s terrible death, sent a happy birthday greeting to their father, Davido, moments ago, along with a photo of him holding on to his girls while carrying Ifeanyi; a gesture of honour to the departed young one.
“Happy birthday daddy! I wish you peace, joy & love” Imade captioned the beautiful photo
NenyKo recalls that Davido has been inactive on social media and also on the social scene since the death of his only son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, who drowned a few days after his second-year birthday in a pool on the 31st of October, 2022.
His absence has however not stopped many fans, colleagues, and well-wishers from celebrating him all over the world today as he turns 30 years of age.
