“Reason I hid my famous mother’s identity for years” – Mayorkun



"Reason I hid my famous mother’s identity for years" – Mayorkun

Popular Nigerian singer, Adewale Mayowa Emmanhel, best known as Mayorkun has disclosed why he left out the part that gis mother is a famous actress.

The Betty Butter crooner revealed that he decided to, for a long time reveal that his mother is Toyin Adewale, a popular actress.

Mayorkun, during a chat with podcaster, Taymesan, said he kept his mother’s identity hidden for years because he didn’t want to be treated with favouritism anywhere.


Mayorkun also said when he was at the university, he never made it known that his mother was a movie star.

He recounted a time that his mother visited him in school with food and someone recognised her, so in order to avoid a scene, he quickly rushed to her.


He said; “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.”
