Feb 5, 2018 – British Nigerian Footballer Dele Alli Abandons Nigerian Yoruba Billionaire Father Kehinde Alli & British Mother, Former Alcoholic Years After He Moved Out Of Home

  • Dele Alli’s Mother Banned From Tottenham Hotspur Stadium For Life For Yelling On Son
  • Footballer Removes Family Last Name From Jersey

British Nigerian footballer Dele Alli has allegedly turned his back on his parents years after he moved out of home.

His mother Denise Alli who has since been banned from seeing her son joined his father, Yoruba billionaire Kehinde Alli at Mirror Newspaper Office today for an interview to beg their son to come back.

Apparently, the couple who met at a night club in the UK back in 1995 broke up three years after the footballer was born but his dad claimed that he was there for him from childhood till he became an adult.

Mr Alli said after his relationship with Denise ended in 1999, he sent Dele to one of the best schools in Lagos Nigeria. He soon moved back to Lagos to stay with him where Dele and his father’s family members lived in a 10-room mansion.

He reportedly attended a private school and had 3 maids who attended to him as a child.

Sadly, Dele’s relationship with his dad collapsed when he turned 13 and registered with Milton Keynes Dons Academy for football training, though his dad was the one footing his bill, he never really had a close bond with him.

At that time, he was shuttling from school to his then alcoholic mother’s home.

At a point, he moved out of home to live with his best friend who lived near MK Dons Academy until he became a professional.

He signed his first contract with Tottenham Hotspur back in February 2015 and even at that time, he never allowed any of his parents into his life, not even his mother who was still battle alcohol issue then.

His mom who made desperate attempt to reconnect with him outside Tottenham’s White Hart Lane stadium in 2017 was shocked when his son drove off after complaining to her that he’s busy.

It was at this point that she allegedly started shouting out of frustration.

On getting home, she got a call from Dele’s representative informing her that she’d been banned from the stadium for life.

Kehinde Alli who moved to Canada back in 2000 remarried around the time his son entered football academy.

When Dele Alli was asked about the allegations, he said he had no comment.

His father, Kenny Alli used to be a popular member of the RCCG House of Praise headed by Pastor Wale Akinsiku on Dundas and Wharton Way in Mississauga before NG relocated to Nigeria.

He used to be a very quiet and reserved man. Easy going and friendly.

To hear that his son has cut ties with him is very painful.

Hope Dele Alli can find it in his heart to forgive his parent because without them, he will not be here today.

    There is nothing to it, he has racism embedded in his blood. He can’t stand his black father. He consider himself white because all his friends and even his girlfriends are white.
    Dele Alli is a mixed racist.
    Egbon Kenny eti somo nu.
    This goes to all Nigerians, especially men, pay special attention to your kids and be there for them all the way.
    Show them love and care.
    Alli was never shown love as a child. how do u expect an alcoholic to show love to a child??
    I still feel for u bro but u will have to let go and let God and drop off d racist in you if not fans wil start to dislike u including me

      When u say he wasn’t shown love I don’t understand that statement. Maybe u didn’t hear when the dad stated clearly that he has 3 maids that attended to his every day needs. And that he bought his very first car and paid for his schools and sponsored him tru his football academy. I mean how else can a dad show support to a child?. They’re so many kids out there who never got half of this and yet they still care for their parents and family. How do u drive off on ur mum because she had mental break down and battling alcoholism?. Isn’t it when someone u love is down that u show Emence love and care?. On him being a racist I don’t know about that, but for him to answer that name Delle Ali, it shows how present his father was in his life. I pray he recovers quick from whatever drugs his hooked on.

        is not about money, is about showing love joke with him. I mean get to know him better. three maid expensive school car and wears without knowing what your child is thinking, he has no one to confine in, to advice him on certain issues, all he do was spent money on him.and now he give back the attitude given to him to his parent you are all saying nonsense. what if then he became drug addict and his life was ruin people will abusing him of misusing his father money. nothing will happen to him and his carrier

          U r just rite. Money does not replace love n attention. Money does not understand pain or joy. I feel wat u mean. I will love a billion times a poor parent dat talk to me n ar there 4 me st any moment dat rich parent that spend on me but give me maids to accomplish their duties.

    I don’t blame the boy, some parents think they can get away with their foolishness; psychologically, the boy must had gone through hell without his parents. We don’t even know the whole story, I don’t think it okay to blame the guy.

      soso you think the father is poor?? some one that is rich enough to provide three maid for him when he was a kid what will be of now and why do you think they are after his money?? one thing to know in life is that no one is perfect a normal person will hurt you and beg for your forgiveness what will be of your own parents no matter what they do a mother who suffer to give birth to you be in your labour for nine month just think of what she has go through to give birth to you and no matter how rich fame and big you are, those who will advise you against your parents will ask you for them one day, no human is trustworthy remember they are your parents no matter what even if you drop their name but you can’t drop their blood is you

    What exactly do they want from him?. You think by washing his dirty linen outside will bring him home. Whatever the reasons , leave him alone. You can’t force him to acknowledge you. All they want is money.

      But the dad is a rich fellow neither is the mum a poor. What is important is the way forward. He should find a place in his heart to forgive his parents. God say we should forgive 777 Times. Pls Dele Forgive ur parents and be free.I dont know whether that is the reason behind his current form in play. if its a recent case. it has totally affected his ccurrent form. He has deform

    Even if he changes his identity 1000times, it cannot change the fact that they are his parents. Whether or not he succeeds in life, they will always be his parents, that can never change.

    honestly,Delis parents failed to develop intimate relationship with their son at tender age.
    He should relate with his parents and forgive them.
    he is not even proud of them because of bad life they live.
    i am so much ashamed of Deli because he is not proud of black skin.


    February 6, 2018 at 11:48 AM

    i feel sorry for his mum his dad is a billionaire so he is not after his money that is British way of life if you are not there for your kids when they are young they will ignore you when they grow up

    Mr Kenny Alli try for his son called Dele Alli but the only thing is that Dele Alli is proving arogance to his dad. He Dele Alli we regret his actions towards his dad, bcus his father try for him when he brakeup with his mother the alcoholic mother bcus he took Dele from London back to Lagos to continue his school thereafter he took Dele back to UK and register him into MKD academy and was even paying his bills before married another wife. My believe is that Dele will regret all his actions sooner or later

    Dele try to find a space in your heart to forgive your parent, remember this if not for them there is nothing like you, we all understanding what you could have pass through,when you need them most they are not there,dele forgive your parent you already pay them back, you ignore the chance of playing for your father country, even your repesentive called your mummy telling her, that she was ban from the stadium, with all these I think you have paid them back,forgive them… PLEASE

    Every story has two sides. You need to hear both, before trying to judge. Dele may not be callous as members of this forum are painting him.

    • Phillips

      February 7, 2018 at 6:18 PM

      Humble, I hope you read the other side from his father’s account. Hope the pictures shows some clue on how he was care for. He is a racist, people has infused hatred into his mind.

    This is not a money issue and we’ve seen worse situations of parenthood still your parents are your parents.Alcoholic mother or not he should be proud of both his parents,after all they never abandon him so why should he.Its just the youthful atitude in him acting by the time maturity sets in he will realise how childish he has been.Parents please show love and care to your wards.

    It is a very sad experience for any family to go through.Its very obvious that the wounds are very deep too.True,there are two sides to every story and we will never grasp its depth until we hear Dele’s side.I would not apportion blames,what happened has happened.Dele,you hold all the aces:There is nothing that can compare with a peaceful family.Forgive your parents.The greatest gift they have given to you is life.God will bless you abundantly if you do this.Thank you

    it is the best way about that we are humans we have to forgive our self’s I don’t think that both of the parents will abandon him if the mother is alcoholic what about the father I mean how can both of them do that so if you look at it very well you will see arrogant in deles life that makes him behave that way to his parent may be the oyibos have turn his head

    This is not about money its about a relationship with your parents.. I am a product of a broken home my father tooks us from my mother because she was not able,we went to one of the best schools in lagos,I had maids,drivers but my father was never there for us(relationship) he was always on the run from one meeting to another.we were living with his family, so what do you call that?? These rich parents they think money is everything kids dont need money they need love,,I dont blame this boy he did not get love from his father,he can take him to the best schools in lagos/europe but wahat he needs is love… outsiders they will say he is ungrateful no he is not..blame his parents for the love they did not provide sjmple

    To all the rich parents out there, money don’t buy true affection. Just exactly what Dele Alli needed when he was young. Children need parental love more than anything. It’s not just about hiring outsider to take care of them or putting them in best schools when they were young, it’s about seeing that father or mother beside them when necessary. I pray that God intercede in their case,and sow the seed of love in Dele’s heart, so that he can forgive and forget the past. Amen!!!

    Na wa for Nigerians, some people are defending him, saying he probably went through hell, oga what hell? Even if his parents were not there for him, of which they were in their very little though insufficient way, he should be understanding, alcoholism is an addiction, something you can’t just stop, it takes the grace of God and a lot of time to conquer it, and addicts are humans too, because she was an addict does that mean she should be abandoned or despised. The father did not make any mistake, having a child like dele Alli with his talent cannot be a mistake. So I want to say this to dele use your brain, one day you will definitely fade, the most important people are always family. They will always love you regardless and even if they don’t you dont need this drama in your life, fix it.

    Did anyone of you speak to Dele? He’s 21, and probably didn’t get the love he deserves from his parents. It’s very hard for him to process what happened to him. Thank God he found an outlet via soccer. In time he will have a sit down with his parents to try and understand how they got to where they are. That’s what ppl should be hoping for instead of judging him. He’s young and stilll trying to figure out his life and future. Don’t condem him, pray for him and his family. ????????????????Show him love????????

      Only he who feels it knows it. I have seen children reject so-called perfect parents only to find out they were abusive in private. Until you have walked in his shoes, you cannot tell him what to do or assume his motives.
      Go Spurs!!!!!!!!!

    delle,,,forgive ua parents,,,and all will be good


    November 2, 2018 at 3:00 PM

    Let’s top going on about how he got here. Let’s stop going on about what he owes his parents because of a randy hedonistic night where offspring was never thought about. Let’s stop being so judgemental about any of them. We were not there. What is more important to the lad right now is his career, his life and his future. He will in time will give recognition to his parents to the extent of the support they gave him in his life. Most folk here assume that every family must abide by a romantic fantasy of eternal giving, forgiving an love. If the family glue was that good it wouldn’t have come unstuck…but some times love that has it’s seed buried under a rock will find a way out to greet the sun……let him be and trust in Mother nature.
