‘Dad’ Is A Terrible Man, Tope Alabi’s Daughter
Singer’s Girl Caught Up In Paternity Crisis Denounces Social Media Dad
Popular singer, Tope Alabi is involved in a paternity scandal as a man, Mayegun Olaoye has come out to claim that he is father of her first child, Ayomikun.
Olaoye said the singer blocked every avenue for him to know his biological daughter in the past 22 years.
Ayomikun, on her part claim that the only father she knows is her mother’s husband, Soji Alabi.
She told The PUNCH that her mother had since informed her about the man.
“I know and will always know that my father is Soji Alabi. I do not know any other person and I have never met any other man. I cannot blatantly deny him because I have heard about him, but I have never had anything to do with this man before.
She added, “My mother never blocked any avenue for us to see. My mother even tried for me to have a relationship with him. I remember when I was about 15 years old, she used to tell me to try and talk about him. Even when we discuss marriage, they tell me that they would want to inform him.
“They always tell me all these things about him but he is the one that never tried to reach out to me. I mean that he has never ever tried to. We have never had absolutely any conversation with this man. I mean I have had absolutely no contact with this man; none whatsoever.
“I am very grateful to God for the kind of mother and father that I have. They have been the best people and after God, my parents are next in my life,” the singer’s daughter stressed.
Ayomikun said she will not bear name of a man who never reached out to her in her 22 years of existence.
“I cannot bear his surname. How can I bear the surname of someone that I have never met? There is no sense in that. I do not even know his surname. How can I bear the name of someone I have never met?
She said, “God knows my real father and everyone knows who my real father is. I did not know this man when I was in my crèche, daycare, primary, secondary or during my university days. I graduated and did not get a congratulatory message; absolutely nothing from him.
“So, there is no much story to tell. It is just a story about an irresponsible father and he is trying to cut every relationship he could ever build with his so-called daughter. I genuinely do not know why he is coming out after 22 years.
Ayomikun continued, “I do not know what he is trying to do and I do not see the point of what he is doing. What I know is that with what he has done, he does not care about my feelings, neither did he put it into consideration. This makes it obvious that he is not that good of a father. For him to have gone out to social media to claim me, I think he has completely lost the chance of any reconciliation at any point in time; that was the last straw.”
She insisted that only court will settle the issue and make her give Olaoye a listening ear.
She said, “If the man wants to reach out to me to patch things up, it would be in court. I do not think that I want to patch things up but I know that I will definitely meet him in court if he ever wants to talk. It cannot be a civil matter because he did not make it a civil matter when he went to social media to talk.”
“I have spoken to my mother about it and we are all fine. It was not something that shocked us. He is not blackmailing the family but he is an example of a very terrible father. A father that is not even trying to make it up to someone but trying to get back to someone else,” Ayomikun said.
