Emmanuel Adebayor Takes To Facebook Again Over Family Dispute

We actually thought this was over. Oh well… Emmanuel
Adebayor who is originally from Togo but plays for Tottemham took to his
Facebook page about 16 hours ago  to pour
out his pains on how his family dealt with him. Though Adebayor, his siblings
and mom have all been having major family issues for as long as 12/13 years, we
thought it was over when Adebayor posted a picture of himself and his sister on
his instagram page few months ago, but no we were wrong. Adebayor still feels
hurt, and only God knows what happened yesterday that prompted him to find
solace in the hands of his Facebook followers. Just too sad, he sounds hurt and I pray that God will comfort him. Below is what he

SEA, 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 money.
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
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.
This 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 idea.

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
