Davido acknowledging Dawson comes as a surprise to many as for 2 years the artist has vehemently denied the existence of his son.

Back in 2020, A UK-based model had rumour mills spiralling after she hinted that she was expecting a child with Davido. However, the artist and his team were quick to disregard the news.

The rumour was squashed but came back to life after Larrisa gave birth and the child looked so much like Davido.

There were also rumours that Davido and Chioma called off their engagement after she found out he'd got another woman pregnant.

Speaking about his late 3-year-old son the superstar admitted that tears well up in his eyes each morning, even if they may go unnoticed by others. He maintains he has never stopped thinking about his little one.

"I miss him every day; there are tears coming out of my eyes every morning; you don’t have to see it," Davido emotionally shared. 

He added that he believes his late son is watching over him from above, and that gives him the strength to be strong for himself and for Ifeanyi's mother.

"I look at myself in the mirror, and I said apart from it just being about me, I know how many people love me, I know how many people are depending on me.

My son up there is looking down at me. Apart from me being strong for his mom, which is my primary responsibility, I have to be strong for the world," added the award-winning Nigerian artist.

Davido lost his first son, Ifeanyi Adeleke in a swimming pool accident at his Banana Island residence in October 2022.
