Fortune Ateumunname, the personal photographer of award winning singer and record producer, David Adedeji Adeleke popularly known as Davido, is dead.

Fortune was said to have accidentally drowned at an undisclosed location in Lagos on Tuesday.

The photographer is the fifth member of Davido’s crew to pass away in four years.

Recall that Davido’s assistant, Uthman also known as Obama DMW, died of heart failure months ago, specifically on June 29.
Obama died at the Ever-care hospital in Lekki, Lagos, on Admiralty Way after complaining of breathing problems and drove himself to the hospital, where he was admitted for treatment, according to reports.

He died a few hours later, unfortunately.

Another crew member, Tagbo Umeike, died in his car, which was parked in front of Lagos Island General Hospital.

His death occurred on his birthday in 2017 after he downed shots of tequila.

The 'Fem' crooner also lost Olu Abiodun, also known as DJ Olu.

Late last year, Tijani, the singer’s 11-year personal bodyguard, also died of a liver problem.

The news of Fortune's shocking death was broken by a Twitter user, @Dianacoco_ on his Instagram account.

While mourning the late photographer, he said, “Davido photographer Fortune is dead, Jesus Christ 💔💔💔💔. I’m heartbroken, he’s my friend 😭💔💔💔💔💔💔
