Nollywood actress, Mide Martin’s has come out to debunk the claims that she abandoned her brother, Damilare since he was born.
Few days ago, an IG blogger had alleged that Mide Martins abandoned her 19-year-old brother, who was born just before her mum, Funmi Martins passed away. It was alleged that the father of the boy who happens to be music legend, Sir Shina Peters also abandoned him.
Mide has come out to deny the allegations saying that she didn’t abandoned him. According to her, Damilare was living with her grandmother until she died three years ago.
The actress revealed in a post on her Instagram page that she tried to gain custody of her brother but her uncle refused. She added that she can never neglect her brother and that she would love to have custody of him now.
The post reads;
“Hello Everyone! My name is MIDE MARTINS. I’ll like to tell little part of my own side of the story. Firstly, I want to say thank you to everyone who has contributed greatly to the ongoing issue and also apologize sincerely to everyone that I might have hurt or disappointed in anyway I am deeply sorry from the depth of my heart. I didn’t want to say anything about this all the while because I believe it’s a family issue which should rather be settled amicably between ourselves rather than being dragged on social media.
“Anyone who knows me very well would know that I am a private person I personally do not really like sharing or celebrating on social media some things relating to my family like the annual remembrance ceremony of my late mother Funmi Martins which I duly observe every year in honor of her memory. When my mum late Funmi Martins passed away 19yrs ago my whole world was shattered, devastated, crumbled, broken, lonely without anyone’s support.
“How I managed to survive through the storm is only by the special grace of God. Damilare was living with my grandma back then in abeokuta and I was doing all that I could to take care of him until few years ago when she also passed on and damilare was taken away to live with my uncle. I had requested custody of my brother damilare several times even before grandma died but was denied.
“Damilare is my blood brother It is not possible for me to neglect him but there’s much more to this story than you all know which I’m sorry I will not go into details because it’s a family matter. I am not a heartless person despite the fact that I don’t have it all the little I have I give wholeheartedly. However, I just want to ask for a favor!! Can Damilare be finally released to me? Can I have my brother Damilare? I promise to take good care of him in my own little way may God help me so. Thank you everyone!! God bless every family out there!!!”
