When people meet me on the streets of Lagos and ogun state, they normally ask me what makes my acting to be so different. I remember one of the boys in agege who was so eager to know the secret and here it is, my Father. There are life lessons you can only learn from the male figure in your family. If you like, have all the money in the world, if you choose not to learn from your father, then you can never become a good father. Yes... Good father.
1. I learnt to be Disciplined
My father knows how to use belt very well. I dare not misbehave because I know I will be reprimanded and flogged. Some fathers today don't flog their children, they end up getting stroke and High blood pressure thanks to their children which should not be so. Don't turn a left eye when it comes to children upbringing. You will reap what you sow.
2. I learnt to take God Seriously.
Hmmm... Some people will be wondering why I act Celestial and Pastoral roles a lot in yoruba films, it is because of the foundation my father gave to me. We go to church a lot when we were young and my father ensured that I participated a lot in church, especially in the drama group. I am not surprised how I ended up as an actor.
3. My Father encouraged me everytime
Though I did not go to the most expensive or best private school in my town, I was very motivated. My father was not a graduate but he ensured that he trained us well (his children). The best investment you can ever give is on your children. They will care for you when you are old and sick.
4. My father never beat my mum
I feel pained whenever I opened social media to see how women who are married that are beaten by their husband's and arrested. You can't say you love a woman, pay her bride price and then start beating her, it doesn't make any sense. It is also going to influence your children later In life because they copy your lifestyle. I can never beat my wife because I never learnt that from my father. I have 4 children and God is keeping them for me.
5. My father is someone you can get wisdom from
Some fathers today are not what they should be. I share my secondary school romantic relationship with him and he counsel me properly, that's why I never became a father right from secondary school unlike some fathers today. My father is a highly motivated and sought after. If any body in our town and family is having issues with their family, they bring it to him for advice. Can you advice when you don't listen to advise. I want to use this medium to appeal to you to train your children in the way they should go because when they are old they will not depart from it.
What do you think? Is this actor right?
