Davido’s first babymama, Sophia Momodu, has tendered a public apology to Nigerians over her birthday post to the singer, which many tagged ‘insensitive’.
Recall that Davido turned 30 on Monday, November 22, and despite his break from social media since the death of his son, fans, celebrities, and well-wishers took to social media on the occasion of his birthday to pray and shower encomiums on him.
Similarly, his 7-year-old daughter, Imade, via her Instagram page managed by her mother, Sophia Momodu, shared a family photo of herself with the singer and his other two kids, including late Ifeanyi Adeleke.
“Happy birthday daddy! I wish you peace, joy & love”, she captioned the photo.
However, the post didn’t sit well with many fans of the DMW boss who were enraged at Sophia for posting a photo of late Ifeanyi on Davido’s birthday, and they also dragged her to filth for not mourning Ifeanyi publicly after his death.
Reacting to the backlash, Sophia Momodu has now released a statement dated October 22 2022, via her daughter’s Instagram page, to apologize for her action.
The statement reads,
“I realize that the earlier post may come across as insensitive and I sincerely apologize as that was not the intention.
Imade deeply loves her father and all her siblings, and as a mother, I’m doing my best to guide her through the difficult emotion of grief from the loss of her brother whilst trying to celebrate her father’s birthday.
I ask for your consideration and hope that you all can be understanding during these times.
