Davido drags Sophia Momodu to court for Imade’s custody

Published

Davido, has dragged Sophia Momodu, the mother of his first child, Imade, to court, seeking custody of the daughter.

In an originating motion filed by his lawyers, Dr Olaniyi Arije, Okey Barrah and others, at the Lagos State High Court, dated April 17, 2024, Davido is praying the court for “an order granting joint custody of Miss Imade Adeleke to the applicant.”

In the alternative, the singer prayed to the court for “an order granting to the applicant unfettered and unrestricted access to Miss Imade.”

The suit, marked LD/1587PMC/2024, has as applicant Mr David Adedeji Adeleke, while Ms Sophia Momodu was listed as the sole respondent.

The originating motion was supported by a 44-paragraph affidavit deposed to by Davido himself.

He narrated that though he had a relationship with Momodu that led to the birth of their child on May 14, 2015, the relationship had ended some years ago “while we resolved to take care of our child as biological father and mother.”

Davido said, “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.

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

The singer said that as a result of the love he had for Imade, he purchased and offered the mother a N200m worth apartment in a condominium gated community with a swimming pool and 24-hour power and water supply at Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos. An offer he claimed was turned down.

He said, “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.”

Davido said to ensure that the interest of Imade was well-catered for, “I bought a Range Rover Sport Utility Vehicle for the use of the child and the respondent to meet the transport needs, including transportation of the child to and from school, etc.”

He added that sometime last year, he received a call from her daughter’s school that Imade had been absent for two weeks, and upon his inquiry from Momodu, “She began to make excuses and complained that the Range Rover SUV was not in a good condition, however, she refused to inform me about that.”

He added, “That sequel to the information about the said condition of the vehicle, I provided another vehicle, Highlander SUV, and in addition, the sum of N5.8m as requested by her for the repair of the Range Rover SUV, making it two vehicles in the custody and use of the respondent and our daughter.”

According to Davido, to further ensure that the interest of their child was adequately taken care of, “I also made commitments to pay for living expenses, the fees of the nanny to our child, provide medical and health care, insurance, periodic international travel expenses and tickets.”

“That notwithstanding my efforts in the overall interest of my daughter, the respondent has continued to make outlandish and Utopian demands to frustrate me,” the singer added.

Listing the other demands allegedly made by Momodu, he said, “The respondent, among others, is demanding that I should pay the nanny she hired the sum of $800 per month, and that the total sum of $19,600 per annum be paid as a lump sum.”

Davido claimed that despite his contribution towards ensuring a better life for their daughter, “the respondent has continued to show me unwarranted cruelty, inflicting so much pain on me.”

My wife’s allowance is very high – Seun Kuti speaks on marriage challenges

Published

Nigerian singer Seun Kuti has humorously revealed that his wife’s allowance is the most challenging thing he has to endure in their marriage.

He stated this during their recent interview on Pulse Fun Facts, where they asked each other a series of questions about his marriage to Yetunde and their relationship. Yetunde asked, “What is the most challenging thing you have endured in our relationship?”

Seun immediately responded, highlighting how expensive her monthly allowance is and how hard it is for him to put the funds together.

“Her allowance is very high—seven figures every month,” he said in between laughter. “I’m not joking; her allowance is very high and she has a high taste. That’s challenging because I have to work for the money and it’s not easy. It’s very, very high. I don’t know how we negotiated it; I must have been under duress during negotiations.”

Yetunde then asked, “Have you had any regrets since we got married?” and in response, Seun stressed that he does not believe in the idea of regrets and therefore has none.

He asserted, “I don’t do regrets; I don’t regret anything in my life so I cannot regret anything in our marriage. I don’t do regrets; regret is for the weak.”

The singer then asked Yetunde about things she was grateful for in their marriage and she said, “I’m grateful for him, grateful for our daughter; what else?”

“What about the sex?” Seun interjected.

“I’m grateful for the sex as well; I almost forgot that part because I didn’t know that we were supposed to talk about that here,” Yetunde responded, laughing.

Next, Yetunde asked the singer to disclose what he would change about their marriage if he could, to which he jokingly noted that he would appeal to the ancestors to make her taller.

Seun said, “I would ask the ancestors to give her more height; the Lord should help her and help me raise her up a bit. Our daughter is almost taller than her and she’s only ten years old. That’s the only thing I think they should change. And oh, her mouth!”

Bolaji Idowu, the lead pastor of Harvesters International Christian Centre, has claimed that most ladies living in Admiralty Way in Lekki, Lagos do not visit the gym to lose weight.

In a video — from one of his recent services — shared on TikTok, the cleric argued that the ladies go to the gym in search of rich men.

Buttressing his argument, the cleric said his gym instructor once told him that some women inquire about the financial and marital status of their male clients.

“Go to Admiralty, you will see the gyms filled with girls. They are not trying to lose weight. How did I know?” Bolaji asked in a video shared on TikTok.

“They go to the gym, half of the time they are talking. So, when they finish, they eat shawarma, and hotdog, which they bought in the gym. Everything they have eaten they send it back to them. That was not the goal.

“… one of the gym instructors told me ‘they will never ask after you because they never know how important you are’. I said what ‘do they ask after’. He said ‘all the guys that have G Wagon they always ask after them.

“What does he do? Is he married? Is he single? Does he come on Monday and Wednesdays…?”
