Last week, news of Ile Ijo singer, May D, allegedly beating up his baby mama, Debola made headlines. Debola who is the mother of May D’s 2-year-old son, Olamipoju, sent popular blogger, Linda Ikeji, an email about the domestic violence she suffered while she was still with the singer. According to her, she was with May D for eight years and it all began while they were still both students in Babcock University. Debola had explained how she made sacrifices for him, and how that she gave up a semester tuition fee to pay for his studio sessions, all in the name of love. Life & Times couldn’t reach May D to get his response to the allegation, but we can’t help but notice his long silence since the news broke. However, Hip TV, a Nigerian music channel reported that his manager, Oreoluwa had debunked Debola’s claim of violence.
When Life & Times spoke with one of May D’s in-house person, he confirmed that the singer was indeed violent with his baby mama. According to the source, May D allegedly became violent because he was no longer getting money as he used to when his name was virtually on the lips of many.
“I won’t say I blame him anyway. It’s not funny when someone who could afford a lot of things can no longer live a comfortable life. He’s not been able to drop any hit song for a while now so, money hasn’t been coming in as such. And you know, some men take out their frustration on their women, which ought not to be so,” he said.
When asked about the frequent cheating escapades Debola alleged he engaged in, he said, “That’s normal for most entertainers. They cheat! So, Debola should have taken it lightly instead of getting angry.”
Our source went further to allege that May D is hot tempered and a control freak, “He didn’t allow her work or make friends as such. She was always in the house, taking care of their son and tending to his needs. She almost didn’t have a life of her own. I think that and the fact that he gets angry at the slightest opportunity and beats her up, got the poor girl fed up,” he revealed. Speaking on Debola’s alleged passing out whenever May D beats her up, our source admitted that the artiste’s temper was becoming uncontrollable. “We are all scared for what he’s turning into. Down times are part of life. You never can tell, things can improve at any time so, he should have been grateful for the kind of girl Debola was to him. Entertainers need those who have been there from the scratch with them, around them, not these girls who come around you when you have money,” he concluded.
