Veronica Imade Adeleke had a notable career in music before her death. She had a music band - David's band - which she named after Davido. She was also a lecturer at Babcock University, Osun state.
It would not be a surprise if a mother-themed song shows up on Davido's next album. It could also be a single coming soon.
