Award winning pop star, Davido, was during the week involved in a public war of words with foremost media mogul, Dele Momodu, following issues relating to Davido’s baby, Imade.
In a series of posts shared on Instagram, Davido spilled some nasty details about the mother of his baby, Sophie Momodu, hitting also Dele, who is Sophie’s uncle.
According to the music star, he was scheduled to travel to Dubai with his family alongside his little baby, Imade who is meant to receive special treatment for an alleged drug infection.
He, however, claimed that the passports of his sister, Ashley Adeleke, and the toddler were impounded by security officials who were acting on the instructions of Dele.
Narrating his ordeal, Davido in a lengthy post gave details of how his daughter was born in May 2015 after a DNA confirmation.
Claiming he met older Sophie as a 21-year old boy, he described his babymama as having very paltry education and equally diminished physical attributes.
In his words, “Cunningly, she moved into my house because she claimed she has no place to stay in Lagos and that her father is late and her mother is resident in Abuja. I have accepted what providence brought my way including my own personal indiscretions. But I also have been burdened by the grave lapses in the character of Sophia and have thus suffered for my daughter who I love as much as my late mother, Imade.
“As for the person of Sophia, I paid a two year rent for her apartment at Lekki and she receives a monthly allowance of N300,000 from me ever since Imade was born. This December, Sophia received N500,000 as her allowance and Christmas bonus. On a routine hospital check, my daughter was found to be infested with massive dosage of poisonous cannabis that she contracted from the breast feeding regime of her mother’s breast.”
Meanwhile, Sophie’s uncle, Dele Momodu claimed in his defense that Dr. Adedeji Adeleke, Davido’s father confirmed in a meeting that little Imade was infected by both mother and father who are both hemp smokers.
Speaking further, Davido claims Imade was supposed to be in Dubai for medical attention.
“On December 29, Imade was supposed to travel, once more, to Dubai for further medical care. A family vacation was attached to this medical trip. But our family plan was truncated by Sophia, her uncle, Dele Momodu in the company of his wife, and all these persons were the significant accessory to the Lagos Airport debacle. It is this incidence of December 29 that made implicitly necessary to bring my family matter to the public domain. I agree, both parents have to give simultaneous approval to the travel plans of an infant. But I do not intend for Sophia to join me on this trip as if we are going away on a spousal honeymoon. It is also fair to allow her to come along if she could pay for the costs of her own trip. Why must I bear medical expenses for my daughter as well as the travel cost of her mum, who is neither my wife nor a friend at all? He asked.
On what has been going on between Davido and Sophie, Davido explained “I rented an apartment for his niece who is not my wife and I duly pay monthly charges. What has uncle Dele Momodu done for my daughter or even his niece? Momodu family also wants me to buy a car for a woman who is not my wife and also an habitual and ceaseless night crawler who is unable and unwilling to mother or even bathe her own child? I am 23 years old now. Sophia got me and appropriated me at 21. I have just unbridled my life from her diabolical and shameless stranglehold. She should find her own life and leave me alone. Her uncle too should help her to quit the streets and find her a career. I am not her meal ticket or ATM because she has a baby for me. I love Imade and would do everything to defend this innocent baby that is being abused by callous adults for extortion purposes.”
It was discovered that, Sophie had petitioned the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and her uncle had called the attention of the Nigeria Custom Service to stop the Adelekes’ from the Dubai trip.
However, after the drama lasted days, the Skelewu singer made a U-turn by tendering his apology to Dele. “Mr. Dele Momodu, I apologise but….u didn’t have to.”
He also reached out to his fans saying, “Love to my supporters and those bashing me….the truth will come out. Even if I don’t keep her, she will grow up and know I fought for her.”
