According to him:
“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.”
