Again: Davido Loses Another Close Associate Fortune
Fortunate Ateumunname Peter popularly known as Fortune, the official photographer to popular Nigerian musician, Davido Adeleke has died.
The celebrity photographer was 24.
His last post on his Instagram page was on July 10, his birthday.
Fortune’s death comes just three months after the death of the hit maker’s close aide Habeeb Ademola Uthman, popularly known as Obama DMW, who died as a result of a heart condition.
Fortune hailed from Ngor Okpala, Imo State. He was the second child of seven siblings.
The late Bariga-born photographer has been working with Davido since 2019.
According to Fortune, the Afrocentric and hustling nature of the Lagos life inspired his works, describing himself a thorough bred “Lagosian”.
Fortune was Davido’s personal photographer and accorded him the opportunity to have toured over 50 cities in the world (including the Middle East, United Kingdom, South Africa and Other Parts of Africa ) spreading his love for his craft and documenting appealing images to the world of art.
How Fortune died…
“He fell into the water while scouting for a good shot apparently. It’s absurd and everyone knows fortune doesn’t know how to swim, so it makes no sense that he would risk it around deep waters like that.
