Woman Who Claims Wande Coal and His Mum Abducted Her Son Cries: “Please, let me see my son”

Popular Nigerian singer, Wande Coal, whose real name is Wande Ojosipe, and his mother, Omolara Oluwayemisi Ojosipe, have been accused by a woman who claims to be the mother of Wande’s son of abducting her baby 8 years ago.

Wande Coal, 32, had kept this part of his life private from his fans. Not many of his fans knew he had a child until he made it public in 2015 while talking to Ehiz on MTV Base Real Talk (read here).

There, the “Bumper-to-bumper” crooner opened up for the first time about his then 7-year-old son, whose existence he claimed to know when the kid was two years old.

His baby mama, Temitope Ogunnusi in a new interview with NewsmakersNG, has however revealed that the singer impregnated her when she was only 16 and two years after the birth of their child, he was taken away from her.

According to her, Wande’s mother, played a pivotal role in ensuring that the child was taken from her. Temitope said she met the popular former Mavin’s artiste at Jubilee Estate, near Otedola Estate, Lagos in 2008.

Temitope revealed that their love waxed stronger by the day until when she told the singer she was pregnant, a news he didn’t welcome. He allegedly rejected the pregnancy on the grounds that it would destroy his then budding career.

“Do you want to kill my career?” he allegedly asked Temitope.

However, Temitope mentioned that other artistes close to Wande were aware of the situation.

“Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo aka D’Banj knew all that happened. He was close to Wande Coal, and he was the person I first complained to when the pregnancy was rejected. D’Banj was shocked. He said ‘No, Wande cannot deny this’.”

But then, the news of Joseph’s birth filtered to Wande Coal and his parents. His mother, Mrs. Omolara Oluwayemisi Ojosipe, arranged to see the boy, who is now 10 and she was allegedly amazed at the resemblance. That was in 2010, when Joseph was just one and a half years old.

Shortly after, Wande Coal’s parents allegedly arranged for a DNA test to ascertain the little boy’s paternity. The result was positive, giving them a 100 per cent assurance that Joseph was actually their grandson.

According to Temitope, Mrs Ojosipe must have decided to have their grandson in their custody when she visited Temitope’s mother afterwards.

One morning, Mrs Ojosipe allegedly she went to the market, bought some food stuffs which she took to Temitope’s mother. Mrs Ojosipe told the unsuspecting woman (Temitope’s mum) that she wanted her grandson to spend some time with her, with a promise to take care of him.

Temitope woke up one Saturday morning, full of expectation that she would be reunited with the father of her son. With the invitation she had received, she packed a few clothes for herself and her son.

They were actually well received and she eagerly waited for Wande’s arrival that weekend. Then his call came and Wande’s mom talked with him on phone. When it seemed the call would soon end, Temitope moved nearer just to indicate her interest in speaking to him.

This must have infuriated Wande’s mother, who got up, moved to her room, dragged Joseph with her, and said, “speak to your son,” as she entered the room with the child. Then, she slammed the door behind her and shut Temitope out.

Temitope said Mrs Ojosipe told her: “My son cannot marry a low class woman.” Unknown to Temitope, there were more surprises in store for her.

Since 2010, Joseph has been in the custody of Wande Coal’s mum and Wande Coal had publicly admitted the paternity of the child. He was said to have released Joseph’s picture on his birthday in June 2015.

Now, Temitope said she had spent the last eight years waking up in tears and pain in her heart.

“Please just let me see my son,” she begged during this interview. “He’s the only one I’ve got.

Speaking on Temitope’s case, a human rights lawyer, Mr. Kayode Oyemakinde, said:

“Temitope, should not only be allowed to see her son from time to time; she should also be compensated in cash. She dropped out of secondary school in her final year to give birth to Wande Coal’s son.

She should be compensated for the trauma she suffered in the hands of Wande Coal and his mother.”

For over a month, NewsmakersNG tried to reach Wande Coal through several channels, but he has been incommunicado.
