Nigerian superstar singer, songwriter, and record producer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has announced the release of his highly anticipated album “Timeless”. The album comes after a difficult period for Davido, who has been mourning the loss of his young son, Ifenayi, who passed away in 2022. The toddler died just a few days after celebrating his 3rd birthday.
In the video, he reflects on the importance of different phases of life, saying, “There is a time for everything. A time to grieve and a time to heal. A time to laugh and a time to dance. A time to speak and a time for silence.”
There is a time for everything. A time to Grieve and a time to Heal.
A time to Laugh and a time to Dance. A time to Speak & A time for Silence.
Thank you to everyone out there for your love and that has held me down.
