Ayomiku Alabi, the daughter of gospel singer, Tope Alabi, has reacted to the paternity scandal rocking her family.
An online blog had earlier on Saturday, claimed that the singer prevented Ayomikun from having a relationship with her biological father, identified as one Mayegun Olaoye.
Ayomiku while reacting to the report, said that the only father she knows is her mother’s husband, Soji Alabi.
In an interview with the Punch Newspaper, Ayomiku said that news was not new to her as her mother had informed her about the man who claimed to be her father.
She said, “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 before.
“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,” Ayomiku said.
Ayomiku also said, “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.”
Ayomiku further said that the only way she can give Olaoye a listening ear is if they meet in court and there is a judgment to that effect.
She said, “If the man wants to reach out to me to patch things up, it will be in court. I do not think that I want to patch things up with him 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,” Ayomikun said.
