Gospel singer, Tope Alabi has showered encomiums on her husband and manager, Soji Alabi.
In a tribute to him on Instagram moments ago, Tope Alabi wrote “My friend, my husband, my choice, my destiny helper, my Angel @officialpopesojialabi I celebrate you for being there always; God bless you sir. For those believing God for partner and a good marriage, your turnaround encounter is now.”
Kemi Filani reports that the public appreciation is coming after being recently hit with paternity scandal.
The scandal was birth after one Mayegun Olaoye had claimed to be Ayomikun’s father, while alleging that Tope Alabi had blocked every avenue for him to know his biological daughter in the past 22 years.
Responding, Ayomikun in a chat with PUNCH denounced the Mayegun Olaoye and clearly stated that 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 am very grateful to God for the kind of mother and father that I have. After God, my parents are next in my life,”
“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?
“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 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.”
