Why I hid my mother’s identity while growing up - Mayorkun

In a conversation with Taymesan on Saturday, Mayorkun clarified that he opted not to flaunt the identity of his mother to avoid receiving preferential treatment in any situation.

In a widely circulated video online, the singer said during his university days, he deliberately refrained from disclosing that his mother, actress Toyin Adewale, was a well-known 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.”
