Nigerian musician, Davido, has been accused by ex-lover, Sophia Momodu, of abandoning their daughter, Imade, for two years.

The accusation comes as Davido and his partner, Chioma prepares for their mega wedding scheduled to take place in Lagos on Tuesday, June 25, 2024.

Momodu’s accusation was made in a statement which was in response to a lawsuit filed against her by Davido over the custody of their daughter.

According to the statement dated June 22, 2024, daughter failed to play fatherly role to Imade for two years.

The statement was issued on behalf of Sophia Momodu by her lawyers, Punuka Attorneys & Solicitors and Bimpe Ajegbomogun and Co.

It would be recalled that Davido filed legal proceedings against Sophia Momodu, the mother of his first child, Imade, seeking custody of their daughter.

The suit, marked LD/1587PMC/2024, lists Davido as the applicant and Momodu as the sole respondent. The case, filed on April 17, 2024, at the Lagos State High Court, through his lawyers, Olaniyi Arije, Okey Barrah, and others, stated Davido’s requests for joint custody or, alternatively, unfettered and unrestricted access to his daughter.

In the 44-paragraph affidavit deposed to by Davido, he said that while he had a relationship with Momodu that resulted in the birth of their child on 14 May 2015, the relationship ended several years ago “while we resolved to take care of our child as biological father and mother.”

Davido says that he has been the one responsible for Imade’s school fees and the rent for the flat where Sophia and Imade live and claims to have purchased a N200 million apartment at Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos for them, which
Momodu rejected and instead demanded annual rent payments of N5 million.

“That it is on record that I have been responsible for the payment of all the school fees of my daughter to provide her with the best education possible and to meet all her educational needs without a hitch,” Davido said.

“That I have also been providing money for the rent of the apartment where the respondent resides with our daughter.”

“The respondent rejected the offer to stay and live at the above-described secured Oniru apartment, which had been purchased already, but demanded that I continue to pay N5,000,000 annually for a rented facility as my own contribution towards my daughter’s accommodation.”
