Adeleke David, aka ‘Davido’, who was reportedly hospitalised yesterday following the drama between himself and his lover, and baby’s mother has been discharged from the hospital.
The music star revealed on Twitter he was just leaving the hospital, after treatments on Tuesday afternoon.
He however, did not disclose in clear terms the reason for his being hospitalised. He also mentioned that he was heading to the studios immediately he was discharged. Recall that Davido and his lover and baby’s mother, Sophie, who are both unmarried, had been in a quiet struggle for the possession of the child, the PUNCH had earlier reported
Matters assumed a different dimension when the artiste and his half-sister, Ashely Adeleke, were reportedly prevented from travelling to Dubai with the child by immigration officials at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos. The officials, it was said, acted in response to a petition from Sophia, which claimed that the singer and his folks had abducted her daughter. The immediate result was an altercation on social media between Davido and his folks on one hand and Sophie, as well as her cousin and publisher of OVATION magazine, Dele Momodu, on the other.
However, Davido is not the first popular Nigerian artiste to find himself entangled in what is now known as the ‘baby mama’ syndrome. At different times in their career, the likes of Tuface Idibia, Ice Prince, Timaya and Wizkid have had to accept responsibility for unwanted pregnancies. They had also faced the challenges of early fatherhood.
