It's no longer news that Obafemi Martins popularly called Obagoal and Mario Balotelli are not on talking terms over the amorous affair between Femi and Mario's elder sister, Abigail.

Fresh facts that have just emerged is that, the two loverbirds have damned the consequences of what their liaison could cause. Obafemi has disclosed that Mario should be happy for dating his sister.

This is what Femi said, “the relationship is true, but getting married or not, we haven't discussed anything like that. She's upstairs and we're happy together.” He also dismissed insinuations that Abigail's younger brother, Mario has kicked against their relationship.

Abigail, 24, said in an interview in April that she couldn't date a footballer: “Mario wouldn't let me anyway. He knows too well what they are like. Women surround them. Girls throw themselves at them.” But Martins responded: “Mario is my boy. The respect is there because I used to play in Inter Milan in the youth team with him. He's giving me my respect and I'm doing the same for him. People are putting it in the news that he's upset; of course, he's glad. “He's glad that Obafemi Martins is dating his sister. If he gets jealous, then it means he doesn't want his sister to grow. But it's not like that."

Also said further that, "the boy is not bad. Trust me, he's not a bad boy.” Martins himself has been cast as a bad boy by the media in times past. Often seen in nightclubs during his vacation. But he shakes off that image. “I'm not a bad boy! When it is time for me to have fun, I have fun but not getting drunk. They've never seen me get drunk in this Lagos. I drive back home all the time.

They can see me in the clubs, but it doesn't mean I don't know what I'm doing. “It's good that they see Obafemi Martins in the club than me just staying at home and my fans can't even see me. I went to D'Banj's Koko Concert and there were no bodyguards. I just walked on my own. It's fun for me,” he said. If he would be announcing an engagement to Abigail soon, he didn't say so, as he would want to focus on football for now.

For the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa, he has this to say,“we have a good team, but if I join it, maybe it would be great. Nigeria have got players that can win it and I wish them the best of luck.”
