Toyin Adewale, the mother of popular Nigerian singer, Mayorkun has spoken about her son’s career in a recent interview.
In a recent interview, the veteran actress stated that she never initially supported her son’s music career. She revealed that she did not bless his career initially, however, she supported him eventually.
She also said she still monitors him daily, despite his fame and age.
In her words;
“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.”
Toyin Adewale is a veteran thespian and a happily married mum of two.
