Davido Welcomes Second Daughter, Hailey Adeleke

OBO welcomes his second daughter!!!

DMW boss and If” crooner Davido has just welcomed his second child, a baby girl names Hailey in the United States. 

The singer made the announcement via his Snapchat a few minutes ago.
Big congrats to him! 

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.

I Have A Distribution Deal With Roc Nation And VP Record – Iyanya

‘Kukere‘ hit maker and former TripleMG Oga who is now signed to Mavin, Iyanya has in recent times been compared to his former recruit, Tekno.
Once Iyanya had the whole African continent and the whole at large dancing ‘Kukere’ now Tekno seems to have taken over from his former boss.
In a chat Saturday Beats Iyanya debunked any rumors he was now envious of Tekno. The muscled singer talked a little bit about his rumoured signing with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

“I am so happy for Tekno and his success and I am not surprised. At a point, we were all together and this is a young guy that works very hard. He worked every night and when we woke up in the morning, he would still be working. So, I am not surprised that he has finally made it. I believe this is just the beginning and there are many more things to come his way. When he came to Triple MG, he sprayed his hair gold and anytime I wanted to call him, I referred to him as golden boy. I am very happy he is doing great things. How would I be envious of somebody that Ubi Franklin and I raised from our platform? We used our platform to promote him and I cannot be envious of him; there is no need for that. People would always try to say negative things but we are very fine.”

The ‘Up To Something’ crooner maintained he has not given up performing with his sensual dance moves which involves whining his waist to the delight of female fans.

“I have not reduced the way I whine my waist. If you watch my shows and my new video you would realise that I have not reduced the way I whine my waist. I still entertain people especially the ladies with my sexy dance moves,”

While Tekno how has a mouthwatering deal with Sony Music, Iyanya also confirmed his rumoured link with Roc Nation.

Iyanya was quoted saying 

“I have a distribution deal with Roc Nation and VP Record and they have some of my songs that they have picked for their market. Even though the songs are for their market, they still represent Nigeria and Africa but those are the ones that they understand and can relate to.”
