Nigeria singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, may be leaving his first child, Imade, in the custody of her mother, Sophia Momodu.

The award-winning artiste gave the hint in a post on his X after Monodu referred to the death of Davido’s son, Ifeanyi in her counter affidavit.

Osun Defender reports that Momodu was dragged to court by Davido who sought custody of their daughter, and claimed he had been responsible for Imade’s education, housing, transportation, living expenses, health care, and periodic travel.

In her response, she alleged that Davido’s home is an unsafe environment for a young girl, referencing the tragic death of Davido’s son, Ifeanyi, in 2022 as evidence of her claim.

The document, which is now circulating on social media, read in part, “The applicant cannot take proper care of our daughter because he lives a controversial lifestyle (negative media attention) that will expose our daughter to more negative trauma at her tender age.

“The applicant in his role as an artiste always travels and allows many unsavoury male adults around him and his house, who will not be a good influence on an impressionable young female child, like our daughter.

“The applicant disagreed with child therapy as the applicant has been estranged from our daughter for a while and safely and sustainably establishing a meaningful presence in our daughter’s life is paramount.

“The applicant is married to another woman, and they live together. The proper upbringing of our daughter by another cannot be guaranteed.

“The fact that the applicant lost his son in his house in rather unfortunate and questionable circumstances shows that our daughter cannot be placed in the custody of the applicant.”

Davido while responding in a post on X.com on Friday, stated how the death of his son has continued to haunt him every day and hinted that bringing it up only reminds him of the tragedy.

He wrote, “Your constantly bringing up the death of my child at any point you can to just remind us of this tragedy that haunts us everyday of our lives.”

He further expressed his readiness to let go of seeking custody of Imade, stating that she won’t be a child forever and that she will see how he fought for her.

He added, “Imade will grow up to see I fought for her. As for now, you can have her. P.S: she won’t be a child forever .. enjoy, Imade Aurora Adeleke ! Your father loves you!

“All I asked for was ‘joint custody’ but cus it’s Davido yall wanna act like yall can’t read! SMH I’m off this … yall be blessed and I pray this never happens to you.”
