After dominating the African movie industry, ace actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, in 2005 released her debut album titled – Gba. The album produced singles like Naija Lowa and The Things You Do To Me. However, after that album, not much was heard about her musical career.
Already, he is carving a niche for himself as he has produced songs for Seyi Shay and some other Nigerian music artistes. 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.
According to her, her son does not believe that she is an accomplished musician.
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.’”
