Fortune Ateumunname: Family confirms death of Davido's Photographer

Davido's long time photographer, Fortune Ateumunname has died

A top Nigerian photographer, Fortune Ateumunname, has died after drowning at an undisclosed location in Lagos. Until his death, Fortune worked with Davido, Patoranking, Zlatan Ibile and many top Nigerian celebrities. However, he was mostly seen with Davido and was the singer's official photographer.

The development has put Davido in the spotlight again, considering how the singer has lost friends and crew members over the years, the latest being Obama DMW. No official statement has been made available by Fortune's family.

HotNaija confirmed from sources close to the deceased that he drowned while finding the best angle he could take pictures from. 

"I'm sure you have all heard of Fortune's death by now. He died while at a shoot on Orange Island near Freedom way. He fell into the water while scouting for a good shot apparently", said Tunde Ednut, who added, "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."

"We did our investigations and found out he was only with his blood brother, so it's tough to build any case of the sort", Ednut said. 

Fortune's father, who also confirmed the incident, said his son's body is yet to be found.
