Davido and Magazine Publisher, Dele Momodu, have finally reconciled their 2-year old beef.
Both parties were at loggerheads sometime in December 2015 following baby abduction drama between Davido and his baby mama, Sophia, niece of Dele Momodu.
Sophia accused Davido’s family of snatching her daughter and refusing her access to the child, while Davido alleged that they were taking the child to Dubai for medical checkup. He published a pathology report which claimed that the child contracted cannabis through breastmilk.
This allegation stirred major feud between both families as Sophia expressly denied the accusation and even demanded that Davido’s father, who is a medical doctor, should run tests on her.
The back-and-forth carried on for many months, as neither party was ready to let go of their grievances.
Davido did not appreciate Dele Momodu making the story public. The young singer would later lash out at the media entrepreneur on Instagram. Davido would also bash him on two songs, 'Ifesinachi' remix by Humblesmith and 'Bad, Baddo, Baddest' by Falz featuring Olamide.
Dele Momodu would react to the name calling. "I have never responded to any of Davido’s comments, this is the first time I would do that. After ‘Osinachi remix’ video, I called his father… Success is a very tough thing to manage, and your fans can mislead you sometimes.
"I know that what he is doing is what most artists do all over the world, to sell their record. so you have to create controversy. I don’t think David ill see me face-to-face and say I’m his boy. I’m his father" he told Joy TV in Ghana in July 2016.
"Even the video… That’s what is selling his record, and I’m very comfortable with it. while will I fight my own child? I can’t fight him. Now, we’re connected together for life through that baby. I can never fight David. He is too small to me.
"He didn’t call me a thief , he called me a boy. Why should I react to something that’s not true, do I look like anybody’s boy? That would mean I’m childish" he further said.
The Momodu family had several meetings with Davido's family to settle the custody battle.
However, they settled their differences at the 10th edition of the Ovation Red Carol in Lagos on Sunday.
Davido apologised to the media mogul after performing on stage.
Sharing photos from the night, Dele Momodu, on his Instagram page praised Davido for his maturity.
He wrote ,”True reconciliation, great joy… God bless DAVIDO… God bless DR ADEDEJI ADELEKE for his uncommon maturity.
“God bless the MOMODU family for that simple heart… We are a family.”
