I Am Not A Serious Musician To My Son – Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde

 Nollywood actress Omotola Jalde-Ekeinde needs little or no introduction in the entertainment world. The actress who delved into music a couple of years ago when she released her debut album ‘Gba’ has opened up on reason nothing has been heard from her since then. Omotola who has a son who is a song producer also opened up on her relationship with him as an artiste. According to her, he does not see her as a serious artiste. Did I tell anyone that I have retired from music? I hope to do a song with my son but he is very stubborn. He has his own way of doing things. I hope that in future, we can collaborate; I have a certain kind of music that I do, I like rock and soft rock. He is still young and he is experimenting.“He is doing a lot of stuff. Obviously, he is enjoying himself because he is a ‘rave at the moment’ and maybe he is thinking that I have not ‘blown’ as a musician. I hope to prove myself in the music industry even more than my song, Gba, did. In future when I have built my own place, I would love to perform on stage instead of being commercial-oriented. I enjoy playing on stage more; I enjoy recording and performing. I hope to get there and do that so that people like my son can take me more seriously. My son knows that I am very good when it comes to music but he says, ‘It is not me you would use to blow.’”Photo Credit: Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde
