Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde Dishes On Her Music Career
Nollywood star actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde took many by surprise when she ventured into the world of music in 2005.
With the release of her debut album, ” Gba “which had singles like “Naija Lowa” and “The Things You Do To Me”, she established herself as a versatile brand.
She has however disclosed that her son, M.J who has produced songs for Seyi Shay and some other Nigerian music artistes does not take her as a serious musician.
In her chat with Saturday Beats, the award-winning actress revealed that she has not given up on her music career as it is one of her first loves. She said,
“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.’”
