Nigerian Afrobeats star D’Banj and his wife Lineo Didi Kilgrow have lost their 1 year old baby.
The musician who arrived in Los Angeles two days ago to attend the 2018 BET Awards lost his only son, Daniel D’Third who celebrated his 1st birthday just a month ago.
Daniel D’Third is said to have drowned in their swimming pool at home.
Tributes have so far started pouring in from other celebrities from Nigeria.
Sending prayers up for @iamdbanj, his wife and their entire family. This is a nightmare. Heart wrenching news. May God strengthen and comfort y'all in this absolutely terrible time. https://t.co/4KZGxgt5N2
