Morning readers. Its sparkling brightt in the city of lagos. Hustling and bustling never stops here even till the wee hours of the night. I respect everyone trying so hard to make a living in a legitmate way because surviving in this country sometimes in this country comes with a tonne of temptation. That being said, am saying Goodmorning to y’all.

Last week or so, i stumbled on some piece by our dear Emmanuel Adebayor on facebook. The content and the impression made by him in the story proved that all was not well with the ADEBAYOR family at large. My curious mind prompted me to dig more and alas, i found so much intriguing stuff going on in that family. Maybe its just me and my busybody or maybe its just in the spirit of solidarity, i have decided to publish his story as written by him and him alone. Make no mistakes, i have not asserted his innocence neither have i lend credence to his saintly-speech by publishing this story, but see it as a way for us to sit down and fetch out the truth…….can we just do that?


I have kept these stories for a long time but I think today it
is worth sharing some of them with you. It’s true that family
matters should be solved internally and not in public but I am
doing this so that hopefully all families can learn from what
happened in mine. Also keep in mind that none of this is about
At the age of 17, with my first wages as a footballer, I built a
house for my family and made sure they are safe. As you all
know, I have received the trophy of African Player of the Year in
2008. I also brought my mother on stage with me to thank her
for everything. In that same year, I brought her to London for
various medical check ups. When my daughter was born, we
contacted my mum to inform her but she immediately hung up
the phone and didn’t wanna know hear about it. Reading your
recent comments, some people said my family and I should
consult T.B Joshua. In 2013, I gave my mother money so she
could consult him in Nigeria. She was supposed to stay for 1
week; but 2 days into her stay, I received a call saying she left.

Apart from all that l also gave my mother a great amount of
money to start a business of cookies and different items.
Naturally, I allowed them to put my name and picture on them
so they can sell more. What else can a son do in his power to
support his family?
A couple years ago, I bought a house in East Lagon (Ghana) for
$1.2 million. I found it normal to let my older sister, Yabo
Adebayor stay in that house. I also allowed my half brother
(Daniel) to stay in the same house. A few months later, I was on
vacation and decided to go to that house. At my surprise, I saw
many cars in the driveway. In fact, my sister decided to rent out
the house without me knowing. She also kicked Daniel out of
that house. Note that the house had about 15 rooms. When I
called her and asked for explanation, she took about 30 minutes
to abuse and insult me over the phone. I called my mother to
explain the situation and she did the same as my sister.

same sister says I am ungrateful. Ask her about the car she is
driving or anything she is selling today?
My brother Kola Adebayor, has now been in Germany for 25
years. He travelled back home about 4 times, at my expense. I
fully cover the cost of his children’s education. When I was in
Monaco, he came to me and asked for money to start a
business. Only God knows how much I gave him. Where is that
business today?
When our brother Peter passed away, I sent Kola a great amount
of money so he could fly back home. He never showed up at the
burial. And today that same brother (Kola) is telling people that I
am involved in Peter’s death. How? He is the same brother who
went and told inaccurate stories about our family to “The Sun”
in other to take some money. They also sent a letter to my Club
when I was in Madrid so I could get fired.
When I was in Monaco I thought it would be good to have a
family of footballers. So I made sure my brother Rotimi gets into
a football academy in France. Within a few months; out of 27
players, he stole 21 phones.

I would not say any anything about my brother Peter Adebayor
because he is not here today. May his soul rest in peace.
My sister Lucia Adebayor keeps telling people that my dad told
me to bring her to Europe. But what would be the purpose to
bring her to Europe ? Everyone is here for a reason.
I was in Ghana when I received the news about my brother
Peter being seriously ill. I drove the fastest I could to Togo in
order to meet him and help. When I arrived, my mother said I
could not see him and I should just give the money and she
would solve everything. Only God knows how much I gave her
that day. People are saying I didn’t do anything to save my
brother, Peter. Am I a fool to drive 2 hours to Togo for nothing?

I organized a meeting in 2005 to solve our family issues. When I
asked them about their opinion, they said I should build each
family member a house and give each of them a monthly wage.
Today I am still alive and they have already shared all my goods,
just in case I die.
For all these reasons, it took very long for me to set up my
foundation in Africa. Every time I try to help the people in need,
they had to question me and all of them thought it was a bad

If I am writing this, the main purpose is not to expose my family
members. I just want other African families to learn from this.

Thank you.

HERE YOU HAVE IT !!!!!!!!!
