The next day, Jeremiah was buried in a private ceremony attended by only close friends and family in Lagos state.
The singer shared the sad news on her Instagram page with a caption paying tribute to her late son and thanking those who stood by him in his last days.
Her post brought in an influx of condolences from her industry colleagues like Shan George, Shaffy Bello, Sammy Okposo and the likes.
