My baby’s father only visits when he wants sex – Sophia Momodu tells court

Davido’s first baby mama, Sophia Momodu, has argued before a Lagos State High Court sitting in Sabo, Yaba, against granting custody of their daughter, Imade to the celebrated singer.

Sophia, in a counter-affidavit filed to challenge the musician’s suit, said he was not fit to be granted custody of their daughter because he is always unavailable and does not possess the ability to dutifully care for her.

The mother of one claimed that while their relationship lasted, Davido never showed true commitment and he often demanded sexual exchange as a precondition for visiting their daughter.

Her words; “He always used the condition of making myself available for his sexual pleasures as a precondition to visit our daughter or show some fatherly love to her.

“The applicant, apart from his cravings for sex, only comes around to spend time with our daughter when he wants to use our daughter for his media stunts or promotions.

“The applicant has always been known to go away and stop communicating with our daughter, to stop making payments for school fees and/or maintenance for our daughter, whenever I refused his sexual advances”.

The respondent stated that Davido once threw her and their daughter out of his home in Atlanta, US, during a summer holiday in 2017 and they ended up squatting with a friend.

She emphasised that she never denied Davido access to his daughter and that it was he who chose to be an absentee father.

Sophia Momodu told the court; “When I noticed that the intention of the applicant for coming late at night to my house was not to visit our daughter but to seek sexual favours, even after our relationship had ended, I told him to desist from such late-night visits, as our daughter, who needed to be in school in the morning, would have slept at the time of his late-night visits.

“It was when I refused the applicant’s ingress into my house at ungodly hours of the night on the pretext of visiting our daughter that he decided to stop visiting or calling our daughter and this has been the pattern with the applicant all through his relationship with our daughter.

“Whenever I refused to be his sex slave, he would stop caring for his daughter and abandon her and use the fact of our daughter’s sadness due to his absence to force me to accede to his unwholesome demands.

“I have never stopped the applicant or his family members from coming to visit his daughter, calling or reconnecting with our daughter”.

At the end of the proceedings, it was learnt that the judge referred the case for possible settlement by the Alternative Dispute Resolution section of the court.
