I refused to be Davido’s sex slave – Sophia Momodu



Sophia Momodu, the mother of David Adeleke’s daughter, has urged a Lagos State High Court in Sabo, Yaba, not to grant custody of their child to the musician.

In her counter-affidavit filed on Friday, Momodu argued that Davido is unfit for custody as he is frequently unavailable and lacks the ability to provide proper care for their daughter.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), despite Davido’s claims of fulfilling his financial obligations, Momodu revealed that their daughter was nearly expelled from school due to unpaid tuition fees.

Momodu further alleged that during their relationship, Davido never demonstrated genuine commitment or affection towards their daughter. She accused him of using their daughter for media stunts and promotions, and claimed he would neglect his parental duties whenever she refused his sexual advances.

Momodu recounted an incident in 2017 when Davido allegedly threw her and their daughter out of his home in Atlanta, forcing them to stay with a friend. She asserted that she never denied Davido access to their daughter, but he chose to be an “absentee father.”

Momodu stated that Davido’s late-night visits were primarily for sexual favors, not to see their daughter, and that when she refused, he stopped caring for and communicating with their child. She emphasized that Davido’s father had to intervene to pay the school fees in 2023 after Davido defaulted on payments in 2021 and 2022.

Represented by Chief (Dr) Anthony Idigbe (SAN) of Punuka Attorneys & Solicitors, Momodu highlighted the improper publication of the hearing notice in a national newspaper, which mentioned their daughter’s name multiple times. The judge, Justice A. J. Bashua, agreed that the child’s name should not have been mentioned and ordered those not involved in the case to leave the courtroom.

Idigbe cited Sections 143, 144, and 145 of the Child’s Right Law of Lagos State 2015, which protect the privacy and best interests of minors involved in legal proceedings.

Momodu criticized the publication of the suit, stating it exposed their daughter to danger, necessitating additional security measures for her safety at school.

The court has referred the case to the Alternative Dispute Resolution section for possible settlement during Settlement Week.
