Veteran film maker, Dr. Ola Balogun, via a letter to the Nation earlier yesterday(HERE), expressed disappointment, and condemned in totality, the role played by Ovation magazine boss, Dele Momodu, in the Davido baby mama saga. Well Dele Momodu has replied:
It is disheartening that while many well-meaning Nigerians have stepped
in to intervene in the face-off between music superstar Mr David
Adeleke, aka Davido, and the mother of his baby Ms Sophia Momodu, my
cousin, a senior citizen and film-maker, Dr Ola Balogun, has chosen to
cast aspersions on me for reasons best known to both of us. In a
well-circulated comment he made in newspapers and on social media,
Wednesday January 6, 2016, Dr Balogun maliciously attacked Sophia and I
without caring to find out what led to the present debacle.
I had the highest regards for Dr Balogun and had
always responded to his calls and text messages to my London line most
times. I wish to apologise to him publicly if I have not been able to
attend to his certain demands but it is regrettable that he would
retaliate through this vengeful manner. Though I bear the same title of
Bashorun with my late mentor Chief Moshood Abiola, I’m just an ordinary
journalist of very modest means.
Let me assure Dr Balogun that elders like him have brokered peace
between the families and by the grace of God we should have good news
sooner than later.
Dr Balogun should please bury whatever animosity he has against me and
join others in reconciling the families instead of pouring petrol into
