Exit neglects baby


by Chris-Paul

Popular kwaito artist Exit, real name David Shikalepo, may be doing well musically but unfortunately, the same cannot be said about him with regard to paternal responsibilities as allegations of baby neglect mounts.
Magdalena Daves, who has mothered the artist’s seven-month old daughter, has confirmed the story.
“All he does is show the baby hatred. He acts like the baby is not his. I’m the only one who cares for our baby,” Magdalena fumed adding that: “I don’t want to be perceived as seeking attention, that’s why I never exposed the situation. But I just want him to start playing his role as a father because it is becoming increasingly hard for me to look after our kid all by myself.”
Maggy said the artist has the financial means to provide adequate support to his daughter, given the success of his current album.
“He has money to buy a car, party, stay in an expensive flat but can’t even support his kid. He cannot say she’s not his because she’s a carbon copy of him and he’s the one who named her,” Magdalena said.
According to her, the daughter’s baby layette collected at a baby shower organised by her friends were left in Exit’s flat as she was in the North for a month.
Upon her return, she inquired about her baby,s layette from Exit, and to her complete chagrin, the artist told her that he had given the stuff to his other baby- mama for his other child.
“He owes my kid the stuff collected from my baby shower that he gave away to his other kid. I want them back,” said Magdalena, who insisted her comments must not be constituted as attention seeking.
When contacted by V-Metro for comment, the artist denied the allegations, insisting that there is no bad blood between him and Magdalena.
“I don’t have such a problem with her; I perform my duties as a father to the best of my abilities. Why is she not taking the matter to maintenance court?
“Last I checked, she and I are cool. The only problem is that her friends are the ones inciting her and that is where all this is coming from,” said Exit, who did not comment on the baby layette claims.
