Nigerian veteran musician and energetic performer D’banj has made it known that he is expecting another child in a few months’ time, 14 months after he lost his first child, Daniel Jr in June 2018 who unfortunately drowned in a swimming pool.
The “koko master” as he is fondly called announced this in an interview with Beat FM London’s OAP, Shopsy after he was asked about how he coped with the trauma of losing a child.
Dbanj said he never thought about losing a child , saying it’s not a thing anyone should wish their worst enemy. Equally he thanked everyone who supported him and his wife all through the phase.
“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 there is god that grated 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 though about it before.”
D’banj also said the death of his son broke him adding that he once went for a therapy but had to stop because ‘it was bringing out so many things.’
“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. This was just the 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. I am happy that over time I have been able to channel that into my music, which is more important for me. You haven’t heard any of them yet but very soon…because the most important thing that I believe and pray for is the restoration. I know that no matter how many time I tell my wife that everything is okay, God has to give us restoration. I am proud to say that in a few months time, I’m going to be a father again”
