Singer Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, well known by fans as Mayorkun, has revealed the reason he has hidden his mothers identity for four years.
An interview published by a Media personality Taymesan on YouTube, Saturday, Mayorkun said he kept his mother identity hidden to shutout the fake love and fame attracted when people know he is son of Nollywood veteran actress Toyin Adewale.
The ‘mama’ crooner in the interview said, “Growing up, my brother and I did not like that our mom was a famous actress. We wanted freedom, but with her fame came fake attention and all.
“I hated going somewhere and being treated differently, not because you like me but because I am Toyin Adewale’s son.
“Even in my university, people did not know she was my mother for four years. I was intentional about this.
“My mom brought food to me at school once, and a girl saw her. I quickly ran to where she was to get the items she came with just so no one else saw her.”
