Must read

Famous afrobeat singer, Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, a.k.a Mayorkun has said that he decided not to reveal his mother’s identity for years because he didn’t want to be treated with favoritism anywhere.

Mayorkun revealed this in a chat with Taymesan on Saturday.

Speaking in a viral clip on the internet, the singer noted that when he was at the university, he never made it known that his mother, actress Toyin Adewale was a popular movie star.

“Growing up, my brother and I didn’t like the fact that our mom was a popular actress because we wanted freedom, but with her fame came fake attention and all.

“I hated being treated differently, not because you like me but because I am Toyin Adewale’s son.

“Even in my university, people didn’t know she was my mother for four years. I was intentional about this.

“My mum brought food to me at school once, and a girl saw her. I quickly ran to her to get what she came with just so no one else saw her.”
