Davido Considers Dropping Custody Battle For Imade After Momodu References Ifeanyi’s Death

Afrobeats singer David Adeleke, known as Davido, has hinted that he may leave his first child, Aurora Imade Adeleke, in the custody of her mother, Sophia Momodu.

This follows Momodu’s recent counter-affidavit alleging that Davido is unfit to raise their daughter.

Momodu claims that Davido’s home environment is unsafe for a young girl, citing the tragic death of his son Ifeanyi in 2022 to support her argument.

The affidavit states, “The applicant cannot take proper care of our daughter because he lives a controversial lifestyle (negative media attention) that will expose our daughter to more negative trauma at her tender age.

” Momodu further contends that Davido’s frequent travels, the presence of unsavory adults in his home, and his estrangement from their daughter make him unsuitable as a custodian.

Momodu also raised concerns about Imade being raised in a household with Davido’s new wife, questioning the proper upbringing of their daughter.

She stated, “The fact that the applicant lost his son in his house in rather unfortunate and questionable circumstances shows that our daughter cannot be placed in the custody of the applicant.”

In response, Davido expressed his ongoing grief over his son’s death in a post on X.com, criticizing Momodu for repeatedly bringing up the tragedy.

He wrote, “Your constantly bringing up the death of my child at any point you can to just remind us of this tragedy that haunts us every day of our lives.”

Davido indicated his willingness to relinquish his pursuit of Imade’s custody, expressing hope that Imade will one day understand his efforts. “Imade will grow up to see I fought for her.

As for now, you can have her. P.S: she won’t be a child forever… enjoy, Imade Aurora Adeleke! Your father loves you!” he wrote.

He also lamented the backlash he faced, noting, “All I asked for was ‘joint custody’ but cus it’s Davido yall wanna act like yall can’t read! SMH I’m off this… yall be blessed and I pray this never happens to you.”

Previously, Plateau News reported that Davido had taken Momodu to court, seeking custody of Imade, and claiming responsibility for her education, housing, transportation, living expenses, healthcare, and periodic travel. In response, Momodu stated that since their relationship ended in July 2022, Davido had neither contacted Imade nor provided emotional and financial support. She insisted that Davido had chosen not to see Imade and that she had never denied him access to their daughter.
