Nollywood actress Toyin Adewale has opened up on her relationship with her son, Mayorkun and how she initially held reservations against his career.
Speaking in an interview with City People, the actress said the singer had a flair for music from a young age and was part of the church choir but she never envisaged him doing music at a professional level.
In her words;
“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.”
Going further, Toyin Adewale admitted to holding back her blessings when Mayorkun revealed his plan to venture into music.
According to her, she was scared and has been in the industry for far too long to know what it entails.
However, with the intervention of Mayorkun’s dad, the actress said she was convinced to give him a chance.
“It was his father who said Toyin, let’s give him a chance, he studied banking in school.” She said.
Speaking on her relationship with son, the doting mum noted that she knows the lyrics of his song from start to finish and keeps a close tab on him.
“I follow and monitor him all the time. In fact, if he has the power to send me out of Instagram, he would have done that since, because I am always on his page every day.” She said.
The thespian also noted that she has a lot of screenshots on her page which were taken from Mayorkun’s Instagram page.
According to her, she calls him to order whenever she finds anything disturbing.
“If I show you my phone you will see different pictures that I screen munched from his page, once I see anything unusual, I snap and call his attention to it, he will be like mummy, please give me a breathing space.” The actress noted.
