Paternity palava: I have no other Father except Soji Alabi – Tope Alabi’s daughter


This is following the recent paternity scandal involving the gospel singer and a certain Mayegun Olaoye.

Popular gospel singer, Tope Alabi’s daughter, Ayomikun, has come out to state that the only father she knows is her mother’s husband, Soji Alabi.

Based on online reports, Olaoye, claimed to be Ayomikun’s father, adding that Tope Alabi had blocked every avenue for him to know his biological daughter in the past 22 years..


In an interview with NoRM‘s known Media, the young lady stated that she was unconcerned about the development as her mother had since informed her about the man.

Ayomikun, however, emphasized that the only father that she has is Mr Soji Alabi, who has been married to her mother for over two decades and has been taking care of them.

“I know and 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.

She added, “My mother never blocked any avenue 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 to try and talk about him. Even when we discuss marriage, they tell me that they would want to inform him.


“They always tell me all these things about him but he is the one that never tried to reach out to me. I mean that he has never ever tried to. We have never had absolutely any conversation with this man. I mean I have had absolutely no contact with this man; none whatsoever.

“I am very grateful to God for the kind of mother and father that I have. They have been the best people and after God, my parents are next in my life,” the singer’s daughter stressed.

Update: Tope Alabi’s Husband React To Her Viral Dance

Mr. Soji Alabi, husband to popular Gospel artiste, Tope Alabi has reacted to the inhumane way his wife was treated after her dance video went viral.

Earlier this week, a video spotting Tope Alabi dancing at her Father’s burial went viral over the internet, with many social media users bashing her for it.

Some called with it ‘worldly’ while others expressed their disappointment.

However, the husband of the gospel artiste, Mr. Soji Alabi, who spoke to Celebrity Diary on the telephone, said:

“People should not just believe things without finding out the reasons. That video was definitely recorded at the wake keep service of my wife’s late father.

As somebody who just lost her father, she was just trying to dance away the tears and she just expressed herself. Nobody saw her when she was crying, but now they are against her for dancing?

The wake keep was organized by some gospel artists and it was held in front of her late father’s house.

Somebody must have recorded the video and sent it online for reasons best known to only God.

My wife has done nothing wrong please”

According to the gospel singer, she was dancing at her father’s burial and people with “spiritual eyes” will understand its meaning.
