Famous journalist, Chief Dele Momodu, faces severe backlash following his condolence visit to the Adeleke family house following the loss of Ifeanyi Jnr.
The chairman of the Ovation media group and his team visited the family house of Adeleke in Lagos to pay his respect for their loss.
Taking to Instagram to share the video, Dele Momodu wrote, “Spent time most of today with the Adeleke family in Lagos…. May God almighty continue to bless and protect them…”
His visit with a camera crew, however, struck many as insensitive as some argued that his purpose wasn’t for condolence but for media coverage.
Others also condemned Davido’s uncle, Ademola Adeleke for wearing a bright smile despite the singer’s mourning state.

Before what is not supposed to get out to the public will be leaked by videos from visitors. This is invasion of privacy.
