Popular Nigerian musician, Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel aka Mayorkun has opened up on why he never wanted to reveal his mother's real identity.
 
He spoke during a chat with Taymesan on Saturday.
 
He explained that the reason was because he didn’t want to be treated with favouritism anywhere.
 
Speaking in a viral clip on the internet, the singer noted that when he was at the university, he never made it known that his mother, actress Toyin Adewale was a popular 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.”
