Sizzling Nollywood moms, Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde and Mercy Aigbe-Gentry, are two pushy parents who are going to great lengths to make their children succeed, albeit in their choice of career.
For mothers in their category, it is more of what they see of themselves in their children.
Some parents see their children as extensions of themselves, while most likely want their children to achieve dreams set for future and follow a dream to provide novel insight into the joys of parenthood.
It’s also a compliment if your child wants to follow your footsteps; no doubt, many actors will love to perform alongside their child just as it is for star actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde desire of having a successor. Her desire may have been fulfilled as her second daughter, Meraiah, is already following her mother’s footstep.
The 15-year old Meraiah shot into the limelight following her Knorr endorsement deal with her mother.
She is highly intelligent and very bold and outspoken; these are some qualities that earned her the post of the head girl in her school, Chrisland from where she graduated few months ago. Meraiah who already flaunts visible curves is dark skinned but very pretty, no doubt her mum describes her as beauty with brains. Meraiah who is her third child and the second daughter is assumed to be the prettier of the two girls. She is also an extrovert and now steps out at major events unlike her big sister who is more of an introvert. She is quite pretty, dark and charming with a grace that commands respect.
Meraiah who was spotted gracing the red carpet at the Elite Model Look event few weeks back, alongside her mum, got a compliment from her mother who recently went on her Twitter handle to say; “She is the face of the future, a young millionaire and a focused teenager”.
Also, pretty Mercy Aigbe’s 14 years old daughter, Michele, is being prepared to be an aspiring model. Already, Mercy has been spotted gracing highflying occasions with Michele whose sexy and charming pictures the mother reportedly had splashed on her Instagram page.
It is on record that children of celebrities are often lucky enough to inherit their famous parents’ good looks, but now, the world is changing fast, as the kids have moved a bit higher to also copy their mothers’ careers and make distinction of them.
