Nigerian singer-songwriter, Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, popularly known as Mayorkun, has revealed why he decided to hide his mother’s identity for years.

Mayorkun made this known during a chat with Taymesan on Saturday, where he explained that he hid his mother’s identity for years because he didn’t want to be treated with favouritism anywhere.

While speaking on the show, he added that when he was at the university, he never exposed his mother’s identity as actress Toyin Adewale, who is a popular movie star.

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.”
