Veteran Nollywood actress, Toyin Adewale, who is the mother of top Nigerian singer, Mayorkun, has revealed that at the initial stages of her son’s career, she did not support him.
Speaking to City People, Toyin Adewale said that she did not give her son her blessing when he disclosed plans to enter into the music industry.
“It makes me proud and I am happy about it, I never knew Mayowa will go into music. He used to be a junior choir master while in the choir, but never knew he would go this far, because he has always been a very quiet, easy-going person. He is not a loud guy, but you know God’s ways are not our ways, so when he started, I became very happy and proud of him.
Initially I was very afraid, I didn’t even give him my blessing, I said I have been in the entertainment industry for long and I know what it entails, so I didn’t support. It was his father who said Toyin, let’s give him a chance, he studied banking in school.
So, I was like why not go and work with your certificate then do music alongside but my husband convinced me. So, we decided to give him our blessings and today to God be the glory.”
