Veteran Juju singer, Sir Shina Peters, has dealt with the viral allegations that the late actress, Funmi Martins, bore him a son, Oluwadamilare, whom he forsook.
Martins, who passed along in 2002, is also the mother of popular actress, Mide, who is married to her colleague, Afeez Owo.
During the week, a blogger, Gist Lover, alleged that Mide and Peters had forsaken Damilare, who is now 19 years old.
But, in a video aso Naija gathered that the juju singer, who has recently ordained a Bishop of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, stated that he was in talks with Damilare and his guardian, Baba Deji. He, however, did not concede whether he was the father of the boy in query or not.
Peters said, “I would like to thank all Nigerians in the Diaspora. I will be turning 64, so I should know the right thing to do. On the issue of Oluwadamilare, from the beginning, there were a lot of controversies, but as an elderly person, I don’t want to discuss that. I have put it behind me. My concern now is how we are going to take good care of Damilare. In the past, I had sent my driver to Abeokuta Ogun State) several times but they did not allow my driver to see him. When Damilare’s guardian, Baba Deji, called me, I was not in the country. I told him I would call him when I got back. In the process of waiting for me, this story came out.”
