Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, the renowned Nigerian musician known by his stage name Mayorkun, has shed light on his decision to keep his mother’s identity hidden for years. During a conversation with Taymesan, Mayorkun revealed that his primary motivation was to avoid preferential treatment.
The singer recounted that during his university years, he deliberately refrained from disclosing that his mother, actress Toyin Adewale, was a well-known movie star. He expressed his dislike for receiving preferential treatment solely based on his family background and preferred to be judged solely on his own merits.
Mayorkun explained that he yearned for the freedom to carve his own path and establish his identity without relying on his mother’s fame. He desired to be recognized for his own accomplishments and contributions to the music industry.
This decision to keep his mother’s identity a secret highlights Mayorkun’s desire to be evaluated for his own talents and achievements, rather than benefiting from his family’s reputation. His determination to establish his own identity speaks volumes about his character and work ethic.
