Dele Momodu responds to Davido’s Allegations – “Stop the dehumanization of a Poor Mother”



Imade - January 2016 - BellaNaija - 01
Yesterday, superstar Davido released a statement sharing his side of the story about his daughter Imade with Sophia Momodu.

Today, Sophia’s uncle, Dele Momodu has released his own statement in response to the allegations made by Davido.

The newspapers were awash this morning and the social media has been on fire since yesterday.

My cousin SOPHIE MOMODU was comprehensively scandalised. Even a Laboratory result alleging she’s a cannabis smoker was splashed everywhere. She was said to have infected her own baby with cannabis. The vicious authors expected some gullible people to believe them.

Nothing could have been cruellest. Our initial reaction was to maintain the ceasefire but this latest attack against a defenceless lady who merely asked that she be allowed to enjoy the fruit of motherhood was the limit of recklessness and rascality.

All sensible human beings should abhor and condemn this unwarranted fabrication of endless lies just to justify the act of forcefully detaching a baby from her biological mother. Check this picture well. That’s baby Imade with her aunt Ashley Adeleke who took her to Dubai a few months ago against her mother’s consent.

The world has been told that the baby was so sick that she needed urgent medical attention in Dubai. Imade’s mother was deprived of attending personally to her own baby. Now wait for this; just imagine you’re the hapless mum of Imade; instead of receiving regular medical briefs from Ashley the Good Samaritan, you receive pictures of your own baby swimming with Ashley Coco inside the heavenly pool of Atlantis, The Palm Dubai, one of the most luxurious resorts in the world while anxiety is killing you back home.

Baby Imade has been forcefully separated from her mum since July 11!, 2015, when she was barely two months old. We’ve pleaded for months with the Adelekes to return the baby to her real mum. Sophie was allowed to visit her daughter once a week every Sunday inside Dr Adeleke’s guest quarters. We did not fight. We did not engage in social media wars. They said our family was too poor and beneath their status. We did not mind. They said Sophie was a gold-digger, we did not respond.

We only kicked when Baby Imade was to be taken out again without the mum’s necessary consent. No one asked them to take Sophie along. We only tried to stop the impunity and dehumanisation of a poor mother. We acted within the ambit of the law. No more.

      Dele momodu, shut your fat mouth up. You should be very ashamed of yourself. Media whore. You posted this whole drama initially, showing how davido couldn’t travel which means you are all about getting an attention. Where were you all this time? All of a sudden you are fighting for your cousin bcos she’s exposed and won’t be getting as much money for being a thot turned babymama. One thing you’ve emphasized on, is the new car davido promised Sophia. You don’t care about your cousin neither the baby.
      All you care is the 15min fame for now.

      The stories are starting to contradict each other, I thought the birth mother said she was prevented from seeing her child for 5 months, that the baby was held captive. But, her uncle just admitted that she was permitted to see the child on a weekly basis. So which one is it?

      The more they talk, the more the situation looks bad for all involved. No one has clarified, why if the baby was taken 5 months ago, did the birth mother continue to collect a monthly allowance from the paternal family, and her family not intervening at the time. No where in the response above, did the mother’s uncle, outright deny that the lab report was false/fake. So that answers that portion of the allegations, (summary of allegations, below).

      A child should be placed in the care of the person, who has the best interest of the child. Being a birth mother, does not give carte blanche to the mother, nor to the father for that matter. Hopefully, after all this “dancing naked in the streets” with everyone involved wanting to have the last word, they will all retreat and put the needs of the child first.

      “The mother is alleged to have smoked while breastfeeding, agreed to give up her baby to the father’s family, for weekend visits, agreed to a monthly allowance that is higher than the salary of the average worker, with a graduate level degree. Given a rent free apartment in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Lagos. Refused the offer for a Toyota or Hyundai, because she wanted a Mercedes-Benz/luxury vehicle. Continued to party, and even racked up huge bills at clubs, telling them to send the bill to the baby’s father. Had difficulty taking care of the child, and required a nurse, a nanny and even a friend to move in with her, in order to take care of the child. Accepted $15,000 (American Dollars) and a business class ticket to go Christmas shopping in November, and then another N500,000 as a Christmas bonus. Spent the holiday period, living with the baby’s paternal family, which is how she found out about the trip. And this whole brouhaha happened because the baby’s father, refused to pay for her ticket to go on the family vacation with them.”

      The people abusing dele momodu are not mothers I’m sure!! The guy is using the only tool hour has. If this girl didn’t have anyone to speak for her she for enter gobe like many poor people.her child would hav been taken forver that is kidnapping which the adelekes are guilty of. So Pls stop insulting him,there was a kidnapping!!

      U obviously hav’nt been following. Is d child really sick? Does she need help breathing? Was cannabis found in her system? Was it found in sophia’s system as well? Cos if the answer to these questions turn out to be yes, Sophia wil nt be fighting fr custody, she wil be begging d courts fr supervised monthly visits which wil only be granted after she goes to rehab.

      In as much as I don’t like Dele Momodu, he’s using the only tool he has to help his cousin. The day he congratulated Sophie and David on social media, people were insulting him. If anyone is logical, you’ll draw/realize that he purposely did that to make it public. Initially, the Adeleke’s weren’t ready to accept the baby. You don’t take a baby, even worse travel with a baby without informing the Mother. Fine, Sophie is irresponsible for even having an affair with David in the 1st place, but David is no different. He’s equally irresponsible and wayward. Also, we live in a world where anyone can do and say anything, and go through any means to make you believe what they want. Anywhere in the world, medical results are easily forged. Let’s even assume Sophie smokes, are you trying to tell me David doesn’t smoke weed? Excuse you. He’s now saying she took advantage of him, what a ridiculously irrational comment. David is very irresponsible when it comes to sexual relationships and at 21 you’re no kid! Already, there were two failed DNA tests that involved David.
      My only issue with Dele Momodu is putting the photos on Instagram. People are saying he’s only interfering cause the Adeleke’s are wealthy, he might not be as wealthy as them, but he’s no pauper; he’s wealthy himself. I don’t support any party or parties so it’s easy for me to be neutral.
      Having said that, all parties involved should give this issue a rest and settle it privately. It has gotten extremely exhausting.

    Why is a grown man like this still airing his views on this matter on social media?
    It’s so disappointing that we all resort to social media of explaining things.
    We do not honestly need any declarations or expectations from you or Sophie or Davido. You are all grown adults and can resolve this issue well outside of social media.
    Life happens, future called Ciara the B word this morning on Twitter. It’s a new year, can we just all make an effort to sort out personal matters where they should and leave Twitter or Instagram or snap chat out of it.

      Can you please stfu? He is acting as her father, Davido has brainwashed you all to believe he is the innocent one. He has every right to try to untarnish his nieces name with his vice. She’s not as popular Davido but Mr Dele is popular and has every right to publish wj=whatever on his social media page.

      And for those labeling Sophia a bad mother, if within 2 Months of having her baby, you feel she caused the baby all that harm, does it warrant Coco claiming the baby for 5 Months? SO within 5 Months they couldn’t get the baby well if she was sick? Why must Davido’s sister be the one who takes care of the baby? I mean Sophia has a mother, does her mother smoke as well? It only explains the Adelekes wanted to buy the baby off the girl and yes she got the money and so? They didn’t tell her directly we want your baby, which young lady would turn down 300k monthly? She sees her baby on Sundays, she was no too ok with it but Coco keeps flaunting Imade like she was hers and when the poor mother was fed up, they want to throw her out of the home. I saw photos of Davido at Sophia’s baby shower and they looked like they would live happily ever after, so what happened? These are the questions begging for answers…

      I do not in anyway condone Sophia’s behaviours but many young women would jump on the chance of 300k monthly from a wealthy family when they show they meant well but whn she noticed she was being neglected, she acted and should be applauded for that…so many young women sell their babies out there for mere N50,000…yes I have witnessed one….

      And if you ever believed Davido has been the one writing those craps, then you’re deluded, he’s got a PR team and they’ve been writing in first person. Its that easy!

    • We are tired jare!

      January 5, 2016 at 3:48 am

      This Dele Momodu is just a scam journalist with no class. The girl Sophie was in the Adeleke’s house over Christmas until the 28th of December. She then turned up at the airport to claim kidnapping and abduction on the 29th because she wasn’t allowed to travel with the family for Dubai vacation. That the Adeleke family do not see you and Sophia as their class even after all your hobnobbing and picture taking in Ovation seems to be upsetting you all the more. You think you can just buy your way into upper class society with your media outlet? Yes they need you for publicity and will entertain you socially but for sure they are not ready to take you in as one of them because quite frankly you are not. Get over it. They don’t want you, they don’t want Sophie, they only want the baby. No amount of mud slinging in the press is going to endear you to them and you have now gone to war with a rich family. Other rich families are watching you closely and you will never get that money or class you seek with this tactless behaviour.

      Dear pls don’t be deceived by d pretence of being d underdog, dis case is abt facts. Wat facts, I mean actual evidence do u hav to support ur claim dat Sophie is d victim? Davido showed u documents n fotos, doctors report which is already evidence in dis issue cos it’s been made public. D lady was ok wit it b4, but she isn’t nw, so everyone should change plans cos she got bored wit d arrangement? Really?

      January 5, 2016 at 10:37 am

      @ Douglas, I would turn down even a million dollars in exchange for my baby. How much is 300k? So because the economy is bad, we should all throw caution to the wind? There are families that survive on less than 50k a month, yet they don’t sell their kids. Stop tryna defend nonsense. And yes I’m a young lady. All parties in question have their faults but the most shocking to me, is Sophie’s acceptance of “bribe” money. She was allowed to see the baby during the 5 months – an arrangement she agreed to because of the monthly allowance and the prospect of a car. Sophie herself attested to this. Now come and defend this too.

    This uncle needs to relax. Seems like he’s enjoying all the attention, forgetting this is really between Davido and Sophie (abi Sophia or Sofie- seems no one can get her name right: not even her uncle and baby daddy), and maybe Ashley Coco (lol) for fraudulent misrepresentation in an attempt to smuggle. You didn’t kick when the baby was seized in July, 2015, but decided to kick on a second (not even first) trip out of the country? If you did not mind being categorized as incompetent to raise the baby because you were “poor and beneath their status”, what has changed? Are you guys now “rich and above their status”?

    I tire for your soap opera, but what I do know is that there is only one relevant question – who has legal custody of this child? Nigerians need to learn a lesson from this. Every aspect of our life is carried out way too informally. I know it’s cultural, but just you wait until you’re faced with a legal issue.

    Davido, give the baby back to her mum. Reach an agreement with lawyers present, carefully analyzing every penny that would be needed. She must sign to keep the baby under good and thorough care else Imade would be taken off her custody. Then move on with your life and keep making music and doing what you love. This situation isn’t a new thing, it would be overcome with both parties happy.

    A mother left her few months old baby and felt comfortable but now crying awolf because she can’t pay her ticket to dubia, now her plans has been flooded. no money no love .. no money no imade, . Sofia is a gold digger I repeat . Let her fight for her child herself and create a life or livelihood for herself than waiting from David. imade is her financial gain and access to the adeleke wealth… I hate lazy girls with passion.

Mr momodu, can’t your niece defend herself? Why speak for her? Instead of you to settle this and call both parties to order and act like the grown up that you are, you are fueling the matter. Are you that desperate for attention? If Davido wasn’t from a wealthy family I’m sure your niece won’t even worry about that baby. So stop

      Davido is a young adult who made a mistake of engaging in an unprotected sex but from what I have read he has really tried to live up to his responsibilities. You need to leave him alone!
      Your niece is almost thirty, and she made a choice of having a baby. She should stop using this baby as a bait.

      With you on this!!! If Davido had not been the baby’s dad and it was one average guy, would Mr Momodu have announced it and congratulated them on twitter. He is not behaving his age. Something that should be settled by elders from both families. Instead he is bringing himself to the level of Davido. I feel sorry for the poor baby but find it hard to have sympathy for Ms Momodu. She should have shown that she could take care of her baby. Let them be the ones to do the begging. As a mum, you should have shown you matter not just think you have arrived because the dad is from a rich family. She knew what she was getting herself into and she has to live with the fall-out. Davido on the other hand has never been a poster child for maturity. I leave his own matter for another day.

    Once upon a time,relationships lasted. Family diputes were resolved amicably, husbands and wives would solve their issues within the four corners of a wall and the public knew not what happened in other people’s marriage,relationship and life.

    All that was in the past. Now, twitter, instragram,facebook,snapchat,youtube and the entire social media have messed up some people’s minds and sense of decency.

    They do not realise that the less people know,the easier it is to live a peaceful, happy and ‘no judgments ‘ life. You place your life in the court of public opinion and let them destroy it for you because the sense God has given you,you refuse to use it.

    Are we supposed to be the Judge in this case or…. Well, since they deem us so important in their lives and won’t let us be, cos they really want us to contribute.I ll be glad to give mine.

    1. Uncle dele made so much sense by blowing up the issue initially,
    2. The Adelekes, scratch that, the Davidos may not have wanted to take that child out of Nigeria forever but surely wanted baby Imade for themselves ALONE, hence the money slash on Sisi Sophie who waa enjoying everything till she realized the goose that lays her golden eggs was going to be taken from her.

    3. I believe Cannabis was found in both Davido and Sophie’s system as alleged in Dele’s first letter,which is the reason why they haven’t taken any legal action. Also why the baby was given to Coco. See also how he didn’t talk about it in this reply
    3. Dele Momodu is taking it personal because of the Adeleke’s discrimination against his own family after several attempt to settle quietly, Hence his advice of diplomacy to his niece. He really wanted to see how far they could and would go.

    4, The cannabis found in Imade’s system I think has been taken care of sincccccccceeeeeee. Baby is doing just fine. This Dubai trips was just cruise loool. Plain Family Vacay. Sophie knew with time they would forget her. Maybe she badly wanted to be on that trip, who knows?

    5. Dele is smart,knows what he has and is ready to do the rofo-rofo fight to the last.. The Media. The Almighty Media. He will drag the Adeleke through the gutters,they will be so sorry in the end. Lool

    Ladies and gentlemen. In this case, money doesnt answereth all things. You don’t throw money at every freaking problem.
    Next time their stupid, spoilt brat son called Davido will use 4 condoms.
    Sophie will forever be his nemesis.
    No matter how unsophisticated and beneath-them they find Sophie, she will forever and ever be Imade’s mother. The earlier they understand the better.

    Uncle Dele pls what is Sophie’s profession, where does she work. What business is she into? Asides being on d Adeleke’s salary scheme, what else does she do. How do expect them not to call her a gold digger when she has nothing else going on for her. If this girl had a job, had goals and was collecting strictly just child support I don’t think she will be disrespected like this. Since you are such a nice uncle why don’t you say to hell with the Adelekes, house Sophie and her baby, collect strictly child support determined by the courts, get your niece a job and give the Adelekes visiting rights. But Sir, I don’t see you doing that. I also didn’t read you addressing ur nieces cannabis results, d problem isn’t that he released it on-line which is bad. But I don’t see you really denying the facts. Your first step is to get your nieces life in order by letting her finish school first, bcos I heard she’s a drop out from Uniabuja. Even Davido himself his way is not pure, they are both irresponsible parents. Instead of all this jaguns, you really need to sit down with your niece, what is her goal in life is. Because afta all dis buhaha, I don’t see her getting financial help from d Adelekes, they will probably just pay for Imades upkeep strictly. Where is ur niece going to live when her rent expires.

    I very sure that common sense is far away from ppl who call mr. Dele Momodu attention seeker. If you don’t know who he is pls google his name. Davido and his family thinks they can use their influence to ruin his baby mama’s life. Thanks to Uncle Dele for his support, imagine if this lady is nobody…The Adeleke’s don’t deserve any respect on this matter, they are a disgrace they should know better, this drama ca’t happen in Europe or America where they visit regularly, only in nija. Respect is reciprocal, they should respect their agreements and the family of the mother of their baby. Proper monitoring and father to a daughter talk can change whatever bad behaviors of his baby mama.

    ”The world has been told that the baby was so sick that she needed urgent medical attention in Dubai. Imade’s mother was deprived of attending personally to her own baby. Now wait for this; just imagine you’re the hapless mum of Imade; instead of receiving regular medical briefs from Ashley the Good Samaritan, you receive pictures of your own baby swimming with Ashley Coco inside the heavenly pool of Atlantis, The Palm Dubai, one of the most luxurious resorts in the world while anxiety is killing you back home”……………….. In other words you all agree that Imade was truly sick. `May be they were appalled with your behaviour sophie for the issue with the baby (still doesn’t justify what they did) but as a responsible mother sophie you should have done much better and avoided all this.

    “We only kicked when Baby Imade was to be taken out again without the mum’s necessary consent. No one asked them to take Sophie along. We only tried to stop the impunity and dehumanisation of a poor mother. We acted within the ambit of the law. No more” ——Uncle Dele as the big man that you are, since you knew they were going to dubai again, you could have just bought Sophie a ticket on the same flight, when she gets to Dubai airport, if they still do not agree for her, she should just cause commotion at the Dubai border entry. Simple.

    Oya all of you should go to court. The public is tired, I would not side with anybody but at the same time I would not blame the Adelekes either. Because the truth is Sophie brought this on herself. If she had been responsible from the beginning, there would be no issue and everything Davido said, Uncle Dele unknowingly or knowingly no matter how had he tried in the first and this second statement has actually proven that david is most likely saying the truth.

    This is the height of irresponsibility from both camps. Uncle dele, I hope you are ready to sponsor Sophia in court and not just the media?

    “you receive pictures of your own baby swimming with Ashley Coco inside the heavenly pool of Atlantis, The Palm Dubai, one of the most luxurious resorts in the world while anxiety is killing you back home.”

    LMFAO, guy your emphasis on luxurious isn’t really helping your cause.

    Did your niece smoke Igbo while breastfeeding, she obviously did. That’s all that matters.

    My candid advise as a mother & grandmother is that Davido should ignore Dele Momodu One wondered why did he become the mouthpiece of his Niece. Both DAVIDO & SOPHIE ARE ADULT FOR GOD’S SAKE.Dele Momodu should fear God& let these young people be. The most harowing aspect of it is the babe involved Imade would not forgive the way her matter is been politicised. Pls leave the parents alone to sort out their differences.

This involves a child and her welfare. Trying to make Sophie look good or Davido look bad is no ones business, go inside your house and settle it please.

    Mr go make a fortune of your own for yourself and stop being opportunistic. There is a legal system in Nigeria. use it if you feel you are being wronged. You are acting as if the baby is yours. Thank God for DNA.

    These people should call themselves to order, and show some maturity by respecting and protecting the image of innocent Imade. They used to tell us in those days that bi omode ba nse bi omode, agbalagba asi se bi gba which means “if the children are displaying their childish behavior, the elders will act their age.”
    When the Ovation magazine was gaining momentum to celebrate the lavish spending of the ill-gotten-money of the elites, I had never for once seen Dele Momodu publicized the image of his family, why can’t these people settle this rift without inviting the third party? Well, their own stupidity is Bellanaija’s gain.
    We never reached the one-third of January self, the NITEL lines con dey give engaging tone like emergency.. They should allow us to concentrate on Nigeria’s matter and leave the trash for Lawma

    That’s y i don’t read comments on BN. We have gullible commenters here. That medical report could have been fabricated as long as it’s Nigeria. If it’s really true davido should provide the American hospital medical report in Dubai, you will be given a medical report after seeing a doctor abroad
    On the other hand, if the baby was really ill like davido’s family claimed…the picture of her swimming with her aunt in pool won’t surface. Just my observations not taking sides.

    Uncle Dele was the first toupload a picture of Davido and Sophia( during the baby Shower), I think he tot he’s cousin having a baby for Davido would be good for business but wen things didn’t turn out as planed he decides to seek sympathy from the public.

  50. concerned

    January 5, 2016 at 11:09 am

    All those complaining about Dele’s conduct, are you not familiar with the antics of the rich and powerful in Nigeria? They do their best to silence you. When they can’t buy you with money, they try to threaten you. Have you considered the fact that maybe the only way Dele could stand up for his niece was to make this public? If he had kept quiet, I guarantee you Sophia would probably never have set eyes on her baby again. You know these rich people, they buy everyone and everything in power. Which is why law enforcement doesn’t work in Nigeria. Davido smokes for Africa. His siblings are druggies as well. So how is Imade safer with them? Uncle Dele, do NOT keep quiet. Continue to expose them and protect your niece. As for Sophia, let this be a lesson to you and learn to be more responsible now that you are a mother.

    Enough already! can you people please stop? The truth of the matter is that this sort of thing is very common among the Yorubas #coversface# I know because I am one. They do it all the time, girl try to buy class by getting pregnant for a boy from a rich family, family gets wing of it and say they are interested in the baby only or the boy denies flatly and refuse to even see the baby or if the girls family are real trouble makers- the girl becomes a leech that the boy cant shake off and eventually has to marry. I think Sophie and the Momodus are trying to make a play for the last option. Its a battle of wills, Sophie and Dele Momodu wants so desperately to belong to that family#Adeleke# (astagafirullah) and the Adelekes are having none of that. I am so sorry for baby Imade-just look at that cherubic face, if only Sophie can be selfless enough to allow the Adelekes raise this baby because frankly she cannot provide the kind of life and priviledges Imade stands to enjoy if she is with her father- I only hope she knows that once the dust settles down she wont see her “uncle” again. I beg you Sophie as one mother to another-let your motherhood love step in, put you daughter first #iknowitisnoteasythough#

    Hi folks, i think we should be cautiously careful in the way and manner will try to contribute our respective views with regard to the misconception between the two families. i think sophia should be taken to rehab and ensure she puts aside to her rough life style and preparing her to become a responsible mother while awaiting the custody of her child to be release to her when due. right now,my major worries now is that did davido not aware that his baby mama was a heavy clubber and cannabis smoker just before he began to go out with her in the first place or neither does he not aware that he’ davido, not the same page with sophia in terms of age and family pedigree or could it be that davido went drunk to stupor when having slept with his baby mama he claims. i think we should face the reality of life here and stop fooling around. you cannot put something on nothing and i expect it to stand. thus, im really pissed already with the approached and the publicity stunt having exchanged by the adeleke’s family and the Momodu’s family. why cant the two familes get their selves level headed for once. it has once been said that a dog that will go astray will not hear the hunter’s sound. that is the case of sophia, according to davido’s presentation, he provides sophia more than enough even in spite of the fact that she is just a baby mama to him.why can’t she gets her self level headed and consider her self lucky to become the first woman that gave child to own world acclaim mobo award winner HKN boss/Nigeria music heavy weight “. for Mr. dele mohmodu i respect you a lot sir, please i think what should be paramount to you right now is how sophia gets out of her predicament and put a stop to smoking/drinking. and reshape her life to become a more responsible mother. that way, the Adeleke’s will be ready to give consent of the child to the mother. the two families should stop ranting on the page of every blog,newpapers and etc….may god help the two familes

    I am not a fan of d momodus nor of d Adeleke. But I think uncle momodu’s should allow d mother of the baby speak for herself. There alot of cases like dis in town now but just bcs Money is involved now, we won’t rest. And now is not the time to force things, if the mother is truly involved in all d allegations layed against her and d father has ruly done all dt he said for d baby mama, in my opinion, he as the right to take custody of the Child so far the mother is not denied access any Time ‘T’ . And i think there should not be implied any negativity if d aunt of d child is taking her anywhere so far d baby is not abused. D father of d Child said he had no relationship with the mum(except for d one night stand as I deduced) so d momodu’s and d so called fans should not force ‘his nieces’ responsibility on him but for the child’s. They too should organise a vacation with the child anywhere they choose so far there ll not b any form of abuse. All of my siblings including myself (5girls and a boy) grew up with my father after our parent had their hitch and imagine I was just about to clock one, am talking as far back as d 80s and today we all turned out well in life and are still doing exploit wout any hate for both of them, they still gist and talk together regarding us and their personal lives. So if d child is suppose to be d father now why d notice and dele momodu and wife should know whether they like it or not, they are still a third party. D father and d mum, still will have the first share of the cake when it coms to Imade. And if there’s any contradiction to Davidos claim, let Sophia speak now and stop dis unnecessary public awareness. Expecially for the baby’s sake.

    My intake to this drama is that every adults involve in this baby situation is a disgrace and the only person that will suffer from this drama is the child. As I sit down in my office here in Washington D.C reading this story all I can remember is my history. Born in Nigeria late fifties age close to the Dele Momodu uncle to this baby. I have a similar history as the baby involve in this drama.. Growing up I do wish I had none of my parents as a parent. I grew up as a lonely child. My mother side of my parent were poor but have so much love to give. My father side are middle class Nigerians in the sixties were able to gain custody of me as a child after the age of two claiming my mother family do not have means to taken care of me. In Nigeria then, power of money rules but forgotten a baby need so much love growing up, the love of a mother and father growing up is priceless .My mother was a young teacher at that time. Regardless of which side is poor or rich the child need both parent. My father got custody of me in the court in Lagos Nigeria but left me to be care for by my grandfather and flew to England with his wife and would not allow my mother to visit me at all. At the end of the day I grew up caring for myself how much can your grandfather do for you he will never replace the love of your parent I felt like a child of nobody leaving with my grandfather because I do not have my mother. My grandfather did the best he could but I end up been damage mentally and emotionally. No one know how much I have suffered but me because of this kind of situation. My father physical and mental abuse linguring in my heart till today. But guess what I am married today for almost 30 years to the most wonderful man God created with two grown up girls with IVY League education and great carriers I still remember all this drama. My intake is to the adults involve in this child stop all this fighting, Dele Momodu should be busy trying to resolve this issues and should not be putting this out to public because of anger. The mother knew her accepting the money is like accepting a bribe since you only have visiting right on the baby and the father please note that mother’s love is very strong and needed in bringing up a child. There is more to raising a child than money. The baby is too young to go on a family trip without the mother. You could afford roundtrip economy ticket to Dubai for the mother make her a part of the baby’s life regardless of the situation. Please enough of this publicity for the sake of a child. Thanks to all who have put in into this forum. We can only judge base on what we are reading.

      @Idocare….Thanks for sharing your story.I quite agree with your opinion regarding Davido’s baby mama saga.It will be nice if the Adelekes can allow the mother to still be a part of her baby’s life.Money,like you pointed out,cannot replace a mother’s love.
      I remember Davido complained about the baby mama not been able to bathe her baby.But the truth is that she is a first time mum….all first-time mums will tell you it wasnt an easy task at first.But can’t an older member of their family put her through?Anyway,if the Adelekes truly love Imade,the shouldn’t stop her from having a relationship with her mum.#Justthinking #IdontSupportBabyMamarismTho

Talent for were what else will attract fine girl to this one MONEY.yall need to stop being hypocrites . The only thing attractive about Davido is his money .

      Thank you my igbo sista. Yes once this baba matures that will be after 100 pre mistake children plus their gold digger mama then one lucky not gold digger who will over look all the mistake children and focus on his account instead will fall in love with him. it’s alright ni as long as baba doesn’t squander all of him papa money Or even pafuka from STD , he can still use it to buy woman in Nigeria woman market. If you want to know how a man will treat you look at how he has treated former lovers. He has no respect for woman. He wasn’t taught it by him papa. He was taught money is power that is all he knows. The only woman david can attract will be the one he can buy with money And the only woman attracted to him will be ones drawn to his wealth. SHEKINA .
