David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has hit out at Dele Momodu, publisher of Ovation magazine, over what has come to be known as the Baby mama drama involving both parties.
About two weeks ago, Davido was barred from taking his seven-month-old daughter out of the country without her mother, Sophie Momodu, who is related to the Ovation boss.
Momodu took to his social media accounts to speak of what he called the failure of money and the prevalence of law and order in the Nigerian immigration system.
Momodu posted pictures of what he tagged a frustrated Davido, who attempted taking Imade, his seven-year-old, out of the country.
Davido apologised for the row he had with the Momodus in the heat of the moment, but added that Dele Momodu could have handled the situation differently.
He outlined his story on the entire saga, accusing Sophie Momodu, who is older than him, of exploiting his naivety at the time of their affair.
“I became the father of a love-child. DNA testing determined with maximum proof that I indeed was the father of my daughter, delivered by a head-butting casual lover, Miss Sophia Momodu,” he said.
“I met Sophia when I was barely 21 years old. She was many years older than me and was able to manipulate and exploit my youth, naivety and generosity.
“I have accepted what providence brought my way including my own personal indiscretions. But I also have been burdened by the 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 300,000 naira from me ever since Imade was born.”
He further accused her of smoking cannabis, which he said was taking its toll on Imade, an allegation Dele Momodu refuted.
In his latest feature song, Osinachi remix, Davido hit out at Momodu, saying he attempted “finishing his career”, but God was on his (Davido) side.
“My humble father, Osinachi, my lovely daughter, Osinachi, my baby mama Osinachi, Dele Momudu Osinachi, no be by force to go Dubai, abi na wetin cause the fight, and I just dey my own dey laugh, cause God dey my side,” he sang.
“They want to take away my favour; they want to spoil my career, dem know say I get flavour….”
He also took Twitter to say “everybody can write their side of a story but not everybody can sing…”
