The 4-year-old boy Oreofeoluwa Babalola whose video went viral after telling his mother to ‘calm down’ has said he wants to be a police officer.
The Montessori 2 pupil told BBC Pidgin in an interview published on Friday that Mathematics is his favourite subject.
“I like Mathematics because it’s good. When I grow up I want to be a police officer to fight corruption,” he said.
Oreofeoluwa said he did not learn the term ‘calm down’ from anywhere, adding: “I just said it”
He said he has not repeated what his mother almost punished him for since that day.
Speaking on life after the video, he said whenever he walks on the street, people want to take pictures with him and they usually seek permission from his mother Toluige Babalola.
Mrs Babalola said Oreofeoluwa does not like being idle, adding that if he is not in school, he would be found playing football or riding his bicycle.
She said their lives have changed since the video went viral, adding that she has met people she never thought she could meet or talk with.
One of those who have met Oreofeoluwa is Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
