Davido has filed a lawsuit against his baby mom, Sophia Momodu, at the Lagos State High Court in order to get custody of their daughter, Imade. In May 2015, Davido and Ms. Momodu welcomed Imade, their first child. According to The Punch tabloid, Olaniyi Arije, Okey Barrah, and other attorneys for Davido filed the lawsuit on April 17, 2024.

The 31-year-old musician is seeking joint custody of his nine-year-old daughter, Imade, and requesting unfettered access to her. The lawsuit, designated LD/1587PMC/2024, acknowledges Davido’s previous relationship with Ms. Momodu and his commitment to co-parenting their daughter.

Davido has provided a 44-paragraph affidavit in support of his request, stating that he has covered the full cost of Imade’s education and has also been paying for Ms. Momodu’s apartment rent while their daughter is there.

The lawsuit reveals that Davido offered a million-naira condominium for Imade’s upbringing in Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos, but Ms. Momodu declined, insisting instead on an annual rent payment from Davido. Davido also purchased a Range Rover SUV for Ms. Momodu and their daughter for transportation needs, but was informed by Imade’s school about the vehicle’s two-week absence in 2023, which Ms. Momodu attributed to a problem with the SUV.

Davido provided Ms. Momodu and their daughter with another vehicle, a Highlander SUV, and also allocated 5.8 million Naira for the repair of the Range Rover SUV. Additionally, he promised to cover living expenses, their child’s nanny’s fees, health and medical treatment, insurance, occasional out-of-country trip costs, and tickets.

Despite his efforts, Davido claims that Ms. Momodu continues to make unreasonable demands, including requesting a yearly sum of $19,600 or $800 per month for their babysitter. Davido feels mistreated by Ms. Momodu and claims that she has hurt him a lot.

In a Snapchat post in June 2024, Ms. Sophia hinted at renaming her daughter Momodu after herself, asserting that she is both a mother and a father to Imade. In previous social media posts, she expressed displeasure that Imade adopted Davido’s last name instead of hers, stating that she was hurt and felt she had been laughed at by her family members when her daughter didn’t take on her own last name.
