First son of late actress, Henrietta Kosoko, Taiwo Olowu, who is known as LT in music circles told Sunday Scoop, that he did not release his latest single, Mama, because he wanted to capitalise on his mum’s demise to promote the song.
“I did something to celebrate mothers. The song is a celebration of life and death. I didn’t do this song to advance my career, it is to express myself. We all have different ways of mourning. I am not using her death to sell my music. I have been an artiste before now and my late mum was supportive of my career before she died,’’ he said.
Twenty-seven-year-old LT started music is 2009 and released his first single, Se Jeje, in 2013. He is one of the twin boys late Henrietta had before she got married to actor, Jide Kosoko. His twin brother, Kehinde, is also a music producer.
When asked about Jide Kosoko and the attendant drama that followed the burial of his late mum, LT said the relationship between the two is not his business. “The relationship between my late mum and Jide Kosoko is not my business. Therefore, my opinion does not matter.” He went on to reveal that he is not close to Jide Kosoko but the veteran actor supports him in the best way he could. ‘He is doing what he can. We are not that close but he is playing his role.”
Taiwo who grew up in the Mushin and Bariga areas of Lagos, said he still misses his mother and her smile.
