Nigerian musician Davido is now a father. News of the musician fathering a baby girl went viral online over the weekend.
The reports were fuelled by a photograph Davido shared on Instagram last Friday. He posted a photograph of a baby’s hands clutching a finger believed to his.
He captioned the post, “God is Great , New life, New beginnings, New Album , It’s our year. ❤”
While his camp tried to downplay the story, Nigerian businessman and politician Dele Momodu has confirmed the reports.
Davido’s baby mama, Sophie Momodu happens to be Dele Momodu’s cousin.
The Ovation magazine publisher, who turned 55 over the weekend, shared some photographs of Davido, born David Adeleke, and Sophie together on Instagram Tuesday.
It is reported that the photographs were taken during Sophie’s baby shower some weeks before the delivery.
Dele Momodu accompanied the photographs with some heartfelt congratulatory message to Davido and Sophie.
He said “Warmest congratulations to Mr David Adeleke DAVIDO and my cousin SOPHIE MOMODU on the birth of your beautiful daughter. May God always provide for you and protect your family… Stay blessed.”
