Tottenham Hotspurs & Togo international footballer Emmanuel Adebayor has been accused by his sister of not seeing his mother for over a year and refusing to take care of her. The old woman is said to have resorted to selling ‘polythene bags, padlocks and other things’ in order to provide for her family.

His sister Maggie claims the £101,000 a week striker allegedly threw his mother out of his house because he thought she was a witch who has been using juju on him.

However Adebayor has said he did not throw his mother out of his house, he told Ghana’s Peace FM

I never sacked my mum from the house. She decided to leave the house. How am I going to be in touch with my mum if my mum is the one telling everyone that my work will not go forward, so I will just be on my side and do my thing. They should stop talking, they should stop doing Juju on me, they should leave me alone.

He went on to add,

I bought a $1.2m house in East Legon (Ghana) for the one talking and calling herself my sister. Can you imagine that sister went to rent the house without my knowledge?’


This is such a shame!  When he won the 2013 African Footballer of The Year Prize, Adebayor attended the ceremony which took place in Lagos with his mother.
