Former Super Eagles winger, Victor Moses, has sympathized with Singer David Adeleke and his fiancée Chioma Rowland over the death of their son, Ifeanyi.
Ifeanyi reportedly drowned in a swimming pool at the singer’s home at Banana Island on Monday.
The boy died three days after marking his 3rd birthday.
Reacting via his official twitter handle, Moses prays that God grants them healing, strength, and comfort in this trying time.
The former Super Eagles star wrote: “My love, strength and prayers go out to @davido.”
Early life and career
Moses was born in Lagos, the son of a Christian pastor. When he was 11, his parents were killed in religious riots in Kaduna when rioters invaded their home. Moses was playing football in the street at the time. A week later, after being hidden by friends, his relatives paid for him to travel to the UK to claim asylum.
He was placed with a foster family in South London. He attended Stanley Technical High School (now known as the Harris Academy) in South Norwood. Scouted playing football in the local Tandridge League for Cosmos 90 FC, Crystal Palace approached him, with the club’s Selhurst Park stadium just streets away from his school.
Offered a place in the Eagles’ academy, Palace recommended him to the fee-paying Whitgift School in Croydon, where former Arsenal and Chelsea star Colin Pates was coaching the school football team. Moses first came to prominence at 14 after scoring 50 goals for Palace’s under-14s side. Playing for three years at both Whitgift and Palace, Moses scored over 100 goals as well as helping Whitgift win many School Cups, including a National Cup where Moses scored all five goals in the final against Healing School of Grimsby at the Walkers Stadium, Leicester.
