Folashade Adeleke, the cousin of Davido, says giving birth at the age of 16 was the darkest time of her life.


In a recent episode of the Say What You Know podcast, Folashade said she became a mother at 16 and faced personal struggles.

The 31-year-old said she believes God gave her the strength to overcome shame especially because she comes from a prominent background.

She said although it was the “darkest time in my life,” she had faith that God was with her.


“I am 31 years old, I have been a mother for 15 years. I was 16 years when I got pregnant,” she said.

“Understand that nobody can shame me if I know who I am. I always tell people whatever I go through is my testimony.

“God had to give me some type of supernatural power to hold my head high and not to be shamed, especially coming from a well-known family.


“At first came fear, then came shame, regret, then neglect. That was the darkest time in my life but through the whole thing, God was with me.”

Folashade is the daughter of Ademola Adeleke, Osun state governor.

In 2016, she got married to Aso Odus. Their union, however, crashed due to allegations of assault. They share a son named Kairo.
