Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Mayorkun has explained why he hated that his mother is a popular actress in the movie industry.
The singer claims that he disliked his mother’s fame, which is why he kept his mother’s name, Toyin Adewale, a secret for so long.
In an interview with Taymesan over the weekend, Mayorkun made this declaration, stating that he was against receiving special treatment anywhere.
In his words; “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”.
