“It is not your job to advise a grieving person” – Singer, Timi Dakolo

Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, has addressed those who are in the habit of giving unsolicited advice to those who are grieving rather than condoling with them.

The singer averred that it’s wrong to give advice to a grieving person and added that it is not in anyone’s place to suggest what the person should have done differently to avert the situation or how they should handle their grief.

He said the timing is wrong and that people should just learn to pray for them and go about their business.

“It is not your job to advice a grieving person, the timing is wrong. Just pray for them ad go your way.” He wrote.

This comes in the wake of news that singer Davido lost his 3-year-old son with his fiancée, Chioma, to a domestic accident.

The tragic death occurred on Monday, October 31st, 2022. Ifeanyi died by drowning at his dad’s Banana Island home.

He was rushed to Evercare Hospital in Lekki where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The couple had traveled for a family gathering to Ibadan and had left Ifeanyi with his minders who can’t explain how he entered the pool without being noticed and drowned.
