The Circumstances That Led To Imade’s Conception
According to Davido, Sophia showed up at his house in Lekki claiming that her father was late and her mum resides in Abuja, thus she had nowhere to stay in Lagos. Out of the goodness of his heart, Davido accommodated her but she took advantage of the singer’s youth (he was just 21, while Sophia was in her late 20s). They eventually had a fling and Sophia ended up pregnant. Even without the benefit of DNA test, Davido said he took care of the lady’s pre-natal and post-natal care and when DNA came out positive, he rented an apartment for his baby mama and paid her N300k per month and N500k during Christmas celebrations. He also took care of Imade’s expenses and all their utility bills.
