Talent and creativity is no doubt in surplus in the family of Nigerian music star, Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel aka Mayorkun.

Recall that years ago, the young man had also caught the attention of Nigerians on social media after his cover of Davido’s song went viral.



At the time, many had no idea that Mayorkun was in fact the son of a super talented Nollywood actress, Toyin Adewale. When it became known, people could not help but place the dots and figure out where Mayorkun got his talent from.

However, even if many are aware of his mother’s influence in the entertainment industry, not many people know that there is another member of the Adewale who has also given music a short before the Eleko crooner.

Mayorkun’s uncle, Segun Adewale, is a prominent musician who also left his mark in the music scene in the 90s.

The musician had his primary and secondary school education in Ibadan and Lagos before he proceeded to pursue a degree at the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo Univesity).

Segun Adewale was an apprentice to Chief S.L. Atolagbe before he eventually linked up with the acclaimed father of juju music, I.K Dairo.

After learning the ropes of arranging and composing, Adewale and his friend, Sir Shina Peters, came together in 1977 and formed a group known as Sir Shina Adewale and the Superstars International.

However, after three years of making music together, the musicians went their separate ways and formed their own groups.
