My mum cried when I dumped law for entertainment - Lolo 1



Comedienne and actress , Omotunde Adebowale- David , better known as Lolo 1 , has opened up that it was her parents that made her study law in the university .

She revealed this recently while speaking with the JSS 3 students of the African Church Grammar School , and the Gateway Secondary School, Abeokuta during the Ogun State edition of ‘Promasidor Harness Your Dream ’ career guidance workshop in Abeokuta .

The on- air personality , who was called to the bar in 2000 after completing her undergraduate studies at the Lagos State University , said she practised law for three years before switching to broadcasting in 2004.

Lolo 1 stated , “When I was a child , I loved radio , I loved novels and I loved television . My mum would tell me that I would stay in front of the television and I would act out everything they were doing. 

I would sing and I would dance . So , I did not need anyone to tell me that this is where I would end up . 

When I wanted to shift from law to the entertainment sector , my mum cried . She did not understand why I would leave law for singing , acting and all that . 

But when we make a success out of anything we choose to do, it makes our parents proud . You must strive to be the best in what you do. ”

She went ahead to advise the students to discover themselves and choose the careers most suitable . Lolo 1 said , “You must answer for yourself individually. 

You must know what your strengths are. Whatever decision you make now is going to affect your future . Anything you set out to do, you must always strive to be the best in it.”
