In his words,”Mide Martins was not in Nigeria she’s in the UK. When she came to Nigeria, she lived with her mother at Challenge, Mushin, in a one room apartment .
Mide’s mum lived with her 2 siblings including the actress who makes them four in the apartment. Before Mide’s arrival, he was already staying with them as the only man.
I don’t know the love between Mide and I, she doesn’t do anything without consulting me and her mother often took my help in discipling her.
My success is heavily influenced by her family”.
