The legal action, filed on April 17, 2024, and bearing the suit number LD/1587PMC/2024, names Davido as the applicant and Sophia Momodu as the respondent, marking the beginning of a legal battle over the child’s custody.

Davido, through his legal action, is seeking a court order granting him joint custody of his daughter, Imade, and unrestricted access to her.

While acknowledging that his relationship with Sophia Momodu, Imade’s mother, ended several years ago, Davido emphasised that he had consistently fulfilled his financial responsibilities towards their child’s well-being, demonstrating his commitment to Imade’s care and support.

By seeking joint custody and unfettered access, Davido aimed to ensure a continued active role in his daughter’s life.

Davido also alleged that Momodu demanded he pay the nanny she hired a monthly salary of $800, equivalent to $19,600 annually, which he deemed excessive.

Despite his efforts to provide for their daughter’s well-being, Davido claimed that Momodu has consistently treated him with cruelty and caused him significant emotional pain.

In light of these circumstances, Davido is seeking a court order granting him joint custody of their daughter, Imade Adeleke, to ensure a more collaborative and harmonious approach to her care and upbringing.

SaharaReporters learnt further that Sophia Momodu, in her response to the singer’s case, filed a 102 paragraphs of counter affidavit via her legal team Dr Anthony Idigbe SAN of Punuka Attorneys and Dr Bimpe Ajegbomogun.

The next hearing is slated for Friday, 5th of July, 2024.
