Fighting Davido Was Bigger Than Fighting Abacha – Dele Momodu
Last December, Nigerian pop star Davido and respected magazine publisher, Dele Momodu finally made peace after a period of disgruntlement.
The Ovation Magazine boss squashed their 2-year old beef when the singer came to perform at the 10th edition of 'Ovation Red Carol'.
Reminiscing on the fight and all that transpired, Dele Momodu has now said, ''fighting Davido was bigger than facing the dreaded Abacha''.
“Fighting with David was my biggest battle ever. It was bigger than fighting Abacha because of the blistering popularity of David; he is an extremely popular guy and it was very unfortunate, (the devil is a liar) because a baby was involved; very beautiful girl, Imade.
''When it happened, I tried my best to avoid a collision with the family because I am very close to the family especially because of Senator Ademola Adeleke. We used to sleep in the same house when I was in exile in London. Whenever Sen. Ademola was around, he would call me and then pick me up to his house and I’ll sleep there and when I need to go back to my own house he would drop me.”
“So when the baby issue came, I didn’t know about it, if Sophie (Davido’s first babymama) didn’t tell me she was pregnant, I wouldn’t have known, she was able to hide it perfectly from everyone" he said.
Davido and Dele Momodu fell out following a custody battle between the former and his baby mama, Sophia Momodu, who's a cousin to Dele Momodu.
