Nigerian gospel singer Tope Alabi’s daughter, Ayomikun, has reacted claims by Mayegun Olaoye, of being her biological father.
According to Ayomikun in a recent interview with Punch, the only father she knows is her mother’s husband, Soji Alabi.
“I 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,”
“My mother never blocked the avenues 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 about him but he never tried to reach out to me.”
“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 added.
“God knows my real father and everyone knows who my real father is. I did not know this man when I was in crèche, daycare, primary, secondary, or during my university days. I graduated and did not get a congratulatory message; absolutely anything 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.”
