“I Monitor Mayorkun Always” Actress And Mother, Toyin Adewale Opens Up

Veteran Nollywood actress and mother of Mayorkun, Toyin Adewale has opened up on her relationship with the DMW signed singer.

The actress revealed in an interview with City People that she is proud of who Mayorkun has become although she didn’t know he would venture into music as he was a quiet guy.

“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,” she said.

She also revealed she didn’t support Mayorkun’s music ambition at first as he had a degree in banking and wanted him to use the degree rather than go into entertainment like she did but for her husband.

“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,” she said.

When asked if she listens to his music, Toyin Adewale said,

“I know all my son’s music from A to Z, word for word, I know his songs very well, 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, I recently told him I want to join Insta story he said ‘no’, that Instagram was okay for me.”

And she concluded with this advice to parents whose kids are into entertainment, saying “First and foremost, they have a lot of work to do. They should allow their kids to follow their dreams and at the same time, they should follow them with prayers and monitor them because children of these days always come up with different things.

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. I would say no ooo, I monitor him always. So, any parent, who wants his/her kids to go into the entertainment industry, should be prayerful and be their guide.”
