Kids can be extra sometimes, and
Nollywood diva, Omotola Jalade’s son, Michael Ekeinde is no exception to this as the note he left his mother on mother’s day, left us all cracked up.
According to Omotola, she got a call from her son on Mother’s day, and after exchanging pleasantries over the phone and eventually wishing her a ‘happy mother’s day’, he asked if she had seen the note she left in the family room.
Here’s what Omotola Jalade wrote;
“So my Last kiddo calls me to say Happy mother’s day. Excitedly I said thanks etc…you know the whole mushy mushy stuff…
Then he says … pls did you see my Note in the Family Room? I said No..thinking how thoughtful ! he left a surprise for today…I hardly go there…so after ending the call… I dashed upstairs a mix of excitement to see this! I’m really tempted to call this child back !

Michael Ekeinde who sat for a interview before now, had disclosed what we all didn’t know about his mother before marriage. According to him, his mother was a Muslim, but converted to Christianity while in Secondary School. Here are excerpts from the interview with Saturday Scoops;
Tell us about yourself.
I am 16 years old. I am an aspiring cinematographer and movie director.
Did your mother influence these interests?
I usually accompany my mother to movie locations. That experience attracted me to film-making and movie business in general. Anytime I watch a movie, I analyse it in a different way. Along the line, I discovered that cinematography is the right career path for me to pursue.
I have watched some movies. There is a huge difference between Nigerian and foreign movies, like the ones produced in the US and the UK. The storyline is different and the quality of the production is also different. I want to do something great with the camera. But I am not sure yet if I will shoot movies for Nollywood or be a Nollywood cinematographer. I am learning as much as I can. I might consider acting along the line as well.
What are your recollections growing up with your mother?
I have many sweet memories with my mother. One that I remember clearly is that she has always been a supportive mother and an inspiration to my academic success. I remember the first time I applied to go to secondary school. My father wanted me to begin secondary school education in good time. I applied to a secondary school when I was in primary four. Many pupils applied to the school of my choice but unfortunately, my application was not successful. Owing to a large number of applications, the school raised the cut-off point and my score was below it. I remember that my mother shouted at me but later calmed down. She encouraged me to study harder next time. She told me to be more focused and that next time, I would pass. She encouraged me to study hard, warning me that none of her family members had failed.
What are the things people don’t know about your mother?
My mother is a prayer addict. You need to see her Bible. Many people don’t know she is from a Muslim background. She was a Muslim. She converted to Christianity when she was in secondary school or thereabouts. She is also very close to God and attributes her success to Him.
