My Son Doesn’t See Me As A Serious Musician — Omotola Jalade Reveals
One would have thought after the Nollywood star had dominated the African movie industry for so long, Omotola Jalade would sit back and relax. In 2015, the actress released her debut album titled – Gba. Singles like Naija Lowa and The Things You Do To Me enjoyed some airplay. Despite this, not much was heard about Omotola’s musical career.
Omotola Jalade has stressed in previous interviews that she has no plans to quit music. She insists that it’s one of her first loves. Thankfully, her son, M.J, is in the entertainment business and is carving a niche for himself. In fact, he has produced songs for Seyi Shay and some other Nigerian music artistes.
According to Omotola, her son doesn’t see her as a serious musician. In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, the actress revealed why she had yet to have a collaboration with her son, whom she described as doing well. In a recent chat with Saturday Beats 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.’”
