While acknowledging that his relationship with Sophia Momodu, Imade’s mother, ended several years ago, Davido emphasised that he had consistently fulfilled his financial responsibilities toward their child’s well-being, demonstrating his commitment to Imade’s care and support.

Davido also alleged that Momodu demanded he pay the nanny she hired a monthly salary of $800, equivalent to $19,600 annually, which he deemed excessive.

Despite his efforts to provide for their daughter’s well-being, Davido claimed that Momodu had consistently treated him with cruelty and caused him significant emotional pain.

In light of these circumstances, Davido is seeking a court order granting him joint custody of their daughter, Imade Adeleke, to ensure a more collaborative and harmonious approach to her care and upbringing.
