Nollywood actress, Mide Martins has reacted after she was called out on social media for allegedly neglecting her brother, Damilare.

The actress was recently called out by popular Instagram blogger, Gistlover, alleging that Mide Martins abandoned her brother which her late mother, Funmi Martins bore for Veteran singer, Shina Peters.

Responding to the allegations, Mide denied abandoning the young boy and revealed that she has at different times seek custody of Damilare but was denied.

Mide has now pleaded to have her brother released to her so that she can take care of him.

In her words,

“Hello Everyone! My name is MIDE MARTINS. I’ll like to tell a 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 any way; I am deeply sorry from the depth of my heart.”

“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 honour of her memory.

“When my mum, late Funmi Martins, passed away 19 years ago, my whole world was shattered, devastated, crumbled, broken and 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 a few years ago when she also passed on and Damilare was taken away to live with my uncle.

“I had requested custody of 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 about 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 favour!! 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!!!”
