There is no beginning without an end,so it is a truism that anything sweet gotten before time does not last long.
This aptly epitomized the disgraceful parental scuffle between 23 year-old David Adeleke,known as Davido and 29 year-old Sophia Momodu,his now estranged Baby Mama,as both are presently in a paternity mess with agencies of the Federal Government of Nigeria being called in to intervene in the matter.
The two different heads of the families have also joined the fray as the quiet business mogul,head of the Adeleke family and father of Davido,Mr Adedeji Adeleke and the Ovation publisher and foremost journalist in Nigeria,Dele Momodu,who is the Uncle of Sophia,are now on war paths with protection of family blood,the major concern.
What is the cause of this present debacle?
It is as a result of Davido’s decision to take his daughter named Imade Adeleke,in company of his half-sister Ashley Coco Adeleke and father,Adeleke to America without the consent of the baby’s mother,Sophia Momodu.
In Sophia’s letter to the Director General, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons,she accuses Davido and his family members of “attempted child trafficking and abduction of her daughter by Davido,Miss Aurora Imade Adeleke.
In a swift reaction,Davido went on his Instagram account to accuse Sophia and Dele Momodu of trying to turn him into an ATM machine,describing Sophia as bewitching him by taking advantage of his naivety when he was 21 to get her pregnant.
He said he is taking Imade to an hospital in Dubai and later on a vacation with other members of his family,without Sophia,as Sophia is not worthy to be his wife and is a perennial night crawler who had infected the baby with massive dosage of poisonous cannabis that the baby contracted during breast feeding.
In a letter Sophia Momodu’s lawyers wrote to the anti-trafficking agency,she said the Adeleke’s deceived her to visit them with the baby after which they collected the baby from her and threw her out of their Lekki Mansion.
In her petition,she said the baby had been collected from her since 11th of July and efforts to resolve the impasse quietly was rebuffed by the affluent Adeleke’s who threatened to deal with her if she ever comes back for the baby.
He said Sophia “appropriated me when I was 21,now I am 23,i have just unbridled my life from her shameless and diabolical stranglehold. She should find her own life and leave me alone.Her Uncle should also help her to quit the streets and find her a career”.
