Imade and mother, Sophia Momodu

During the interview, Imade was asked What is your favorite part about being your mother's daughter, to which she said:

IMADE ADELEKE: Everything, even when she yells.

Then she was asked, What is one lesson you've learned from your mother that you'll carry with you throughout your life to which she said:

IMADE ADELEKE: That I am confident. That I know who I am. I know where I'm coming from, and I know where I'm going.

When asked If you could change one rule at home, what would it be? she said:

IMADE ADELEKE: TV time, snack time, and bed time. If I had to pick one, bed time. Because I have superpowers: I can stay up late, still get up early, and still be sharp.

And then speaking about her grandparents when asked Aside from your mother, who is someone you look up to and why? she said:

IMADE ADELEKE: My grandparents. I would say my grandparents, cuz my grandpa on my dad's side and grandma on my mother's side, my grandparents are the best.

Asked If you could have any superpower, what would it be? she said:

IMADE ADELEKE: To transform into a fairy. Because fairies are pretty.

Finally, she was asked If you could trade places with your mother for a day, what is the first thing you would do as her? to which she said:

IMADE ADELEKE: I would go out with her friends. Do girly stuff, have some beverage, massage, and all those things.
