Wizkid defends fellow musician Davido on baby Drama
Acclaimed Nigerian pop star Wizkid came out in support of his fellow musician, Davido who has been accused of attempted child trafficking and abduction of his daughter Aurora Imade Adeleke.
The Ojuelegba hit-maker, who is currently dating Tania Omotayo, has also had his share of baby mama drama over the years.
According to Kemi Filani, Wizkid has a child named Boluwatife with baby mama, Sola Ogudugu.
After Davido’s drama unfolded, he took to Twitter to defend the Aye singer because he felt that Davido should not be bashed for having a baby out of wedlock
“It’s crazy being in the entertainment industry! We go through the craziest things! Keeping it together isn’t as easy as y’all think,” he tweeted.
“God guide us all” He added.
He further posted a picture of popular Nollywood actor, Yemi Solade and his family saying: “I’m jealous of this family! #beautiful.”
Davido and his baby mama Sophia Momodu got into a bitter custody war after the pop singer attempted to take his daughter, Imade Adeleke, abroad on December 30 without the consent of her mother.
Immigration officials at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos denied Davido clearance to fly out of Nigeria after Sophia wrote a petition to the airport authorities saying she had not given the go-ahead for her daughter to be flown out of the country – which is a requirement by law.
In a lengthy letter addressed to the Director General, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, Ms Momodu said Davido used his half-sister Coco Adeleke to disguise herself as the biological mother of the child.
Ms Momodu said she had not given her formal consent for the baby to be flown to Dubai.
“Neither was a letter of authority from the mother to confirm her consent to the trip produced despite the airline being alerted,” read the petition.
Davido, on the other hand, defended his move saying his daughter needed urgent medical attention in Dubai after the “mother transmitted to her poisonous cannabis through breast milk”.
The Skelewu hit maker then used social media to open up bitterly about being “taken advantage of by ‘elderly’ Sophia Momodu when he had hardly matured.
“I met Sophia when I was barely 21 years old. She was many years older than me and was able to manipulate and exploit my youth, naivety and generosity. Sophia is the mother of my daughter, and no more!” ranted Davido.
The 27-year-old dispelled allegations by Davido that she smokes marijuana, adding that the allegation cannot be used as a reason to take baby Imade away from her.
She also accused the singer of being cocky and disrespectful of her family because he hails from a wealthy and influential background.
