Barely a week ago, Nollywood actor and producer shared a video of his eight-year-old son, Darimisire working as an apprentice at a mechanic workshop.
According to the October 1st producer, the younger Afolayan was doing his “holiday internship as an automobile mechanic”.
Afolayan has now shared the inspiration behind this decision with Punch Newspaper’s Saturday Beats. He said, “Children of this generation may think they are having fun because they didn’t experience what some of us experienced but they are caged. Most of their life is spent either in front of television or the computer game. My children are a bit different; they are not addicted to anything. Even the most senior one who has a phone, most times I force him to pick the phone because he doesn’t stay on it.”
The award-winning actor who has also shared a video of his daughter, Darasimi carrying out her own holiday internship at a fashion designer’s shop also said, ““I also want him to learn how to interact with people outside the house and learn how to speak Yoruba so that when he is back in school, he will understand that life has different sides and not everybody is privileged to have what he has,”
These unpopular actions of the actor has earned him praise among fans who believe he is setting his kids on the right path.
