Imade's chat caused a huge stir and media personality, Adeyinka Odutuyo, spoke with Legit.ng about it. He said:

"That conversation should never have made the light of day, and from Sophia’s past record, it’s evident she only shared it to stir something. Imade could have written it, we’ve seen how smart and expressive that little girl is. But the question is, should Sophia have shared it? Apart from making people question Davido’s role as a father, she’s forgetting it’s social media where the tides turn and someone could be using same screenshots to question her role as a mum. As for the drama between them, again, it’s been Sophia stirring things as she’s always done. I don’t expect Davido will engage her in the back and forth."
