Is this really how to start the new year? mega super stars, Tiwa Savage and Davido at loggerheads with each other

Tiwa Savage has lodged a legal complaint against fellow artist Davido, accusing him of threatening her life and causing harm. In a statement on Tuesday, January 9th, 2024, Tiwa urged the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fayoade Mustapha, to hold Davido accountable if any harm befalls her or her family.

According to the petition, Tiwa accused Davido of threatening her and violating her privacy, stemming from her Instagram post about Davido’s baby mama, Sophia Momodu, on December 23, 2023. The petition details their history, including Davido’s past affair with Momodu and the subsequent reconciliation.

Tiwa asserts that she told Davido not to contact her again, especially since she supported him during the challenging time of losing his son. She claims that Davido is displeased because she maintained a relationship with Imade’s mother, Sophia Momodu, with whom Davido is currently having problems.

The petition highlights alleged disrespectful messages from Davido and expresses concern for her safety. Tiwa calls for police intervention, citing violations of her rights to life, privacy, and dignity.

The statement reads:

“I am writing to bring to your attention a distressing situation involving myself, Tiwatope Omolara Savage, popularly known as Tiwa Savage and MR. DAVID ADELEKE, popularly known as Davido,” the petition reads in part.

“On the 23rd of December, I made a post which included myself and Sophia Momodu on my Instagram Story- a feature on Instagram which allows you to put up a post for twenty-four hours, and MR. DAVID ADELEKE sent messages to my manager, who’s also part of his management team, that I shouldn’t worry and should never say a word to him and that I was taunting him, uttering very disrespectful, malicious and derogatory words to my person. I responded to MR. DAVID ADELEKE’s message and told him not to reach out to me, especially as I feel like I have been there for him and his daughter, Imade and more importantly when he lost his son.

“The events of that day have also led to a barrage of calls and messages from our mutual connections, asking me what I did to MR. DAVID ADELEKE that he’s upset that I chose to maintain a relationship with Imade’s mother, Sophia Momodu, who he’s having issues with and also painting the exchange to look like I was the aggressor. He has also told our mutual connections to warn me to “be careful in Lagos because he was going to f**k me up”.

“This is beginning to feel like some form of online and offline harassment, not just to me but also members of my team. The actions of MR. DAVID ADELEKE are unethical and can be viewed as a direct threat to my rights to life, privacy and dignity of my person as guaranteed in Chapter 4 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), and are also in contravention of Section 24(2)(a) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, Etc.) Act, 2015.

I, therefore, would like to make this complaint and to state that in the event that anything untoward or harmful were to happen to me or any member of my family, I would like the members of the Nigerian Police Force to hold MR. DAVID ADELEKE responsible.

I am available to answer any questions or provide additional information regarding this matter.

“Please find attached screenshot images of the exchange between myself and MR. DAVID ADELEKE for your perusal.

“Thank you in anticipation of your prompt response and attention to this matter.”



On January 6, 2024, Davido and Tiwa Savage unfollowed each other on Instagram, causing a stir on social media. This followed a reportedly cordial relationship over the years, with their children attending the same school. Tiwa’s ex-husband, Tee Billz, threatened to expose Davido for disrespecting his family, waiting until after the Grammys to share more details.
