Award-winning artist Davido’s first mother, Sophia Momodu, is said to have submitted a counter-affidavit in opposition to his request for joint custody of their daughter.


Gossipinfo reported that a few days before his traditional wedding, Davido had filed a suit, seeking joint custody of his daughter, as he claimed Sophia was denying him access to her and extorting money from him. He narrated that though he had a relationship with Momodu, the relationship had ended some years ago while they resolved to take care of their child; unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case. He claimed Sophia rejected his house offer and demanded he pay a N5 million monthly rent for her house, among others.


Responding to it, Sophia said she had an affair with Davido from 2020-2022 while he was dating Chioma. She debunked his claims of denying him access to his daughter, as she revealed that Davido had never made any attempt to meet with Imade and had abandoned her because she refused to have sex with him.
