D’Banj Opens Up Concerning The Pain Of His Child’s Death – In life we are always met with tragedy, this year in 2020 marks almost two years since the death of his son and Nigerian superstar D’Banj has yet to overcome his loss.
The musician and his wife Lineo Didi Kilgrow lost their 13-months-old son, Daniel Oyebanjo III, in a drowning accident on June 24, 2018. According to reports by Pulse Nigeria, the accident transpired at the couple’s home.
The star has mirrored on their loss numerous times since and ushered to Twitter this week to honestly open up about his heartbreak.
“For the first time in 21 months, I slept in my room … I thought it would be easier but the memories are so fresh,” he said.
He hopes to be there for others who are struggling during the current Covid-19 like his fans have been there for him over the last 21 months.
“Although my family and I have been through so much in this time, I woke up this morning with a grateful heart knowing that I can be a source of visible hope to anyone going through a hard time due to this pandemic or any personal issue.
“Just know that tomorrow will be better and you can turn your pain into motivation. Stay strong.”
D’Banj’s page was saturated with empathetic messages of love and support, and D’Banj returned to the platform on Tuesday to spread further “hope”.
“I’m so humbled reading all the tweets and compliments. Visible hope is what I stand for and I’m glad and grateful to God it’s a reality. This is just the beginning. Let’s go turn the pain into motivation.”
