Popular gospel singer, Tope Alabi’s daughter Ayomikun, has stated that the only father she knows is her mother’s husband, Soji Alabi.
This follows the recent paternity scandal involving the gospel singer and one Mayegun Olaoye.
Olaoye reportedly claimed to be Ayomikun’s father, adding that Tope Alabi had blocked all avenues for him to meet his biological daughter in the past 22 years.
In response to the news, Ayomikun Alabi, the young woman in the midst of the controversy, in an exclusive interview with The PUNCH, stated that she was not surprised by the development as her mother had informed her about the man.
Ayomikun, however, emphasized that the only father he has is Mr. Soji Alabi, who has been married to his mother for more than two decades and has been caring for them.
“I know and always will know that my father is Soji Alabi. I don’t know any other person and I have never met any other man. I can’t blatantly deny it because I’ve heard of him, but I’ve never had anything to do with this man before.
She added: “My mother never blocked any avenues for us to see her. My mother even tried to get me to have a relationship with him. I remember when I was about 15 years old, he used to tell me to try to talk about him. Even when we talk about marriage, they tell me they would like to inform you.
“They always tell me all these things about him, but he’s the one who never tried to get close to me. I mean, he’s never tried. We have never had absolutely no conversations with this man. I mean I have had absolutely no contact with this man; none at all.
“I am very grateful to God for the kind of mother and father I have. They have been the best people and after God, my parents are the next in my life, ”emphasized the singer’s daughter.
Olaoye had expressed her resentment with Tope Alabi for changing her biological daughter’s last name; But in her conversation with The PUNCH, Ayomikun seemed puzzled that a man who never approached her in his 22 years of existence would expect her to carry his last name.
“I cannot bear his last name. How can I carry the last name of someone I have never met? That doesn’t make sense. I don’t even know his last name. 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 meet this man when I was in my nursery, nursery school, elementary school, high school, or during my college days. I graduated and did not receive a congratulatory message; absolutely nothing about him.
“So there is not much story to tell. It’s just a story about an irresponsible father and he’s trying to cut off all the relationships he can build with his supposed daughter. I really don’t know why it comes out after 22 years.
Ayomikun continued, “I don’t know what he’s trying to do and I don’t see the point of what he’s doing. What I know is that with what he has done, he does not care about my feelings, nor did he consider it. This makes it obvious that he is not such a good father. For him to have come out on social media to claim me, I think he has completely lost the possibility of a reconciliation at any time; That was the last straw. “
Also a sound singer like her mother, Ayomikun stated that the only way she can hear Olaoye is if they meet in court and there is a trial in that regard.
She said: “If the man wants to communicate with me to fix things, it would be in court. I don’t think he wants to fix things, but I know that I will definitely meet him in court if he ever wants to speak. It cannot be a civil matter because he did not turn it into a civil matter when he went to social media to speak.
Despite what happened, he said that his family is fine and that everything is normal, since they were not surprised by Olaoye’s actions.
“I have spoken to my mother and we are all fine. It was not something that surprised us. He is not blackmailing the family, but he is an example of a terrible father. A father who is not even trying to make it up to someone, but to get back to someone else, “Ayomikun said.
