We make no secret of the fact that we love the Nollywood screen goddess, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde. She keeps amazing us at almost every turn and her latest is a Facebook message she left for her son as he gained admission to the university. It was heartfelt and touching as she told him to do his best, never abandon music, but not to let it get into his head.
There’s a reason for that admonishment as the 16 year old boy recently came third at an international music conference producer showcase competition in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He was the only African to compete and the youngest at well. He has a passion for music and goes by the stage name, Captain E.
It is wonderful to see a mom who is encouraging her son to pursue his dreams even as she gives him sound advice for life. We definitely need more mothers like this; true African mamas. True Naija mamas.
The Facebook post is below:
“So, as you start this new journey in the university, we love you; believe in you, and trust you will be deluged by, in all your choices.
I say we, because, remember, you have a lot of mummies and daddies watching for you here too. Okay boy, enjoy the campus life but don’t relent on the music (they think you are greatness already) but you can still be whipped if you take a wrong step…. be confident and believe in yourself”
