Popular Nigerian artiste, Davido, has just welcomed his second child with his American girlfriend, Amanda. The 24-year-old singer broke the news on SnapChat on Tuesday evening and also disclosed that their new daughter had been named Hailey. He also put up a video of the mother of his daughter and her mother on SnapChat.
Davido checked Amanda into a hospital on Tuesday and begged his fans on SnapChat to say a word of prayer for him as he awaited the birth of his daughter.
The singer’s baby mama is based in Atlanta, in the United States. The attention-loving singer updated his fans on the progress of the labour on his Snapchat handle and also took them on a tour of the maternity ward.
After several initial denials, the singer confirmed that he was going to be a father the second time in an Instagram interview with Beat FM on-air-personality, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, in March.
Two weeks after he granted the interview, a young lady, Ayotomide Labinjo, also stepped forward alleging that the ‘Dami Duro’ singer was the father of her daughter, three-year-old Aanuoluwapo.
The 26-year-old lady alleged she had a sexual affair with the singer in 2013 and got pregnant and had a baby girl. The singer denied the claims.
Davido welcomed his first daughter, Imade, with Sophie Momodu in May 2015. Sophie is a niece of popular journalist, Dele Momodu. Just like his biggest music rival, Wizkid, Davido now has two children from two different women. In January 2016, the pop star and his baby-mama were involved in a feud over the custody of their daughter.
Davido’s family took custody of the baby following allegations that Imade had been infected by marijuana through breast-feeding. Sophie, a budding fashion designer, claimed that Davido’s family abducted the baby and planned taking her abroad but Immigration officials helped her stop the trip.
The controversy led to a public spat involving Mr. Momodu, Davido and his billionaire father, Adedeji Adeleke. Both parents currently have joint custody of their daughter. In 2014, a 23-year-old model, Shanielle ‘Sunshine’ Haye, also claimed to be five months pregnant with twin girls for the singer.
