July 03, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actor in the Yoruba movie genre, Ibrahim Yekini, otherwise known as Itele D Icon, has apologised for abandoning his children.
An online platform had recently claimed that the film star had neglected his four children with their mother, identified as Dupe.
The actor was also accused of having an affair with a female colleague in the movie industry.
Itele had earlier dismissed the allegations that he abandoned his children.
However, in an Instagram post on Saturday, the actor revealed that he has been battling an undisclosed ailment.
This, according to him, affected his usual monthly support for his children with his former wife.
He also apologised for his initial outburst over the matter, adding that such was due to frustration.
“The past few days have been a roller coaster of emotions for me. First and foremost, I will like to thank those who reached out concerning this issue, thank you so much. God bless everyone.
“Recently, I have been in and out of the hospital, but I chose not to post or say anything about it on my page, so, I don’t bother anyone, trusting God for good health. Until few days ago when the issue of my ex-wife and kids made its way to the internet.
“I felt so bad and typed out of anger, which I regret bitterly. Nobody is perfect and I will want to apologise openly to my fans, family and friends, who felt disappointed in my write-up, I take back those words and I promise going forward, I will do better.
“I love my kids and I promise to do the needful henceforth, I am apologising to the general public to please forgive my earlier outburst and disregard it, to my fans worldwide, God bless everyone and to those who reached out too, I appreciate it a lot.”
