Afro pop singer Dapo Oyebanjo, aka D’banj, is set to welcome a son with his wife, Didi Lineo.
D’banj who is currently in London for his Koko Concert revealed the news in an interview with on Beat FM London.
“I am going to be a father in a few months after praying for restoration after the sad incident. And we are expecting a boy,” the singer revealed.
The couple lost their one-year-old son, Daniel Oyebanjo III, about 14 months ago.
He was reported to have drowned in a pool in their residence in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Two months after the incident, the artist dedicated a song to his wife.
D’banj thanked everyone that supported him and his wife during the trying time.
He said, “First, I want to thank everyone out there who has supported us, but the truth is in everything we do we need to give thanks to God and more importantly, I believe that is God that granted me the grace and mercy over my family and my wife to be able to be here today. It’s not something you wish for your worst enemy. To lose a child is not something you think about, and I have never thought about it before.”
He also revealed that he only attended therapy once with his wife but stopped going after it “brought up a lot”.
“If I told you I thought about it, unlike other things you asked me and I told you I am focused and I go in, this was one that broke me. It was just that it just took the grace of God and a bit of therapy. I think I went for therapy once and I said this no be my style because it was bringing out so many things.”
The singer also expressed delight that he had been able to channel his pain into creating good music for his fans.
