The Certified Loner singer noted that even when he was at the university, he never made it known that his mother was a popular movie star.
He 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.”
