I want to be a police officer to fight corruption, says boy in ‘mummy calm down’ video

By  | 

The young Nigerian boy who inspired the viral “mummy calm down” video, Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, says he wants to be a police officer in the future so as to fight corruption.

Oreofeoluwa 4-year-old, spoke of his dream career when he featured on an Instagram live chat with City People TV, Friday.

“I want to be a police officer to fight corruption,” he said while fielding questions from Seyi Kehinde, the host.

The little boy said his comment in the video was to plead with Toluige Olokobi Babalola, his mother, not to administer disciplinary action on him.

He expressed excitement about the attendant popularity the video has brought to his family, while also lauding his mother.

On her part, Toluige, who also featured on the live session, said she never envisaged that the video clip — which was done out of sheer fun — could become an internet sensation in the blink of an eye.

“It was God that destined it this way, I never envisaged it would fetch us such popularity,” she said.

She added that the development had turned her from the usual “everyday person with nothing special” and his boy to a celebrity, whom many people now crave to speak with.

The mother of two, however, dismissed claims that she was abusing the little boy in the video, noting that her action was borne out of her desire to correct him from further wrongdoings.
