Mother Of ‘MummyCalmDown’ Finally Reveals What Happened In The Viral Video Of Her Son
In the past few days, the word “mummy calm down” has become a household name following a comical video showing interaction between a mother, and her son.
Being a guest via phone conversation on Your View anchored by Morayo Afolabi-Brown, the mother of Oreofeoluwa in #MummyCalmDown video has finally explained what happened in the trending video clip of her son.
Before I discuss the revelation of Oreofeoluwa’s mother concerning what transpired between her and her son.
We need to recall what the video is all about.
In the said video, Oreofeoluwa was seen demanding his mother to calm down as the mother gets to scold him for a wrong doing. When the mother alleged him of repeating the same offence over and over, Oreofeoluwa promised his mother he would repeat such behaviour.
While responding to the video, the ladies of YourView agree the boy is comical, and that he would be a good mediator and film maker. They, therefore, urge the mother to start grooming Oreofeoluwa Lawal and not to allow his talent to waste.
That being said, the name of the mother of the boy is not hashtag #mummyCalmDown as put by Nigerians but Mrs. Toluwaloju Lawal. That is what she said her is on the program. So, stop calling her #mummycalmdown.
She reveals that that was not first her son had been saying ‘mummycalmdown’ each time she wanted to flog him. When Mrs. Toluwaloju Lawal was asked if she had gone ahead to beat her son in the trending video, she said she didn’t beat her.
“Anytime I want to beat, he does behave funny, and I used to tell my sister by saying, “see what your son is doing o?” , she said. She added she recorded the viral video just show her sister evidence of how he used to act each she wanted to punish him.
I am sorry Oreofeoluwa exclaimed on phone when he was being asked by Morayo Afolabi-Brown on why he was telling his mother to calm down.
However, when the father was contacted via Skype video conferencing, the father asked him to say calm down which he gladly pronounced.
On the contrary, Yeni Kuti who is the daughter to late legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti said she is totally against corporal punishment for children as a way of checkmating their excesses.
Now that the mother has cleared the air on the video, I hope Nigerians are now convinced that she didn’t actually beat Oreofeoluwa as wrongly thought by the millions of Nigerians.
What is your take on this? Should parents stop beating or punishing their children if they do something wrong?
