Meet Captain E, The Handsome Son Of Veteran Actress, Omotola

It is becoming quite commonplace nowadays to see Nigerians who are celebrities give birth to children who will take after them and become a celebrity as well. These children of celebrities often become celebrities in other areas quite different from the path chosen by their parents. A prominent example is that of Cameron Okoye, the son of Peter Okoye of the now-defunct P-Square group, who plays for Barcelona academy.

Examples like that abound but another one which in recent times has been catching our eyes is that of Mathew Johnson Ekeinde Jnr, the son of Mathew Johnson Ekeinde Snr and Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, a veteran Nollywood actress who has been a mainstay of the Nigerian Nollywood industry. The young man who is professionally known as Captain E is a recording and performing artist, record producer, DJ and songwriter.

The talented Captain E, who was born on the 20th of August 1998 in Lagos and who happens to be the first son of Omotola Jalade Ekeinde found his love for music at a relatively young age of 9 in 2007 when he started a piano lesson. He would go ahead to learn to play several other instruments such as the guitar, violin, saxophone and flute. In 2014, he got invited for the International Music Conference in Atlanta, Georgia where he bagged the third best producer despite being the youngest contestant.

The junior Ekeinde, who graduated in July 2013, with a Bachelor’s in Communication and media studies with an honors degree from Eastern Mediterranean University in Cyprus has seen his music career gone to even greater heights after his exploits in 2014 as he has mixed various tapes featuring A-list Nigerian music acts such as Mr Eazi, Wizkid, Eddy Kenzo, Runtown and Harrysong. He has released songs of his own too including "More of me", "You & I" and "Only option" amongst others.
