My mother’s last words made me who I am – AY

Ayo Makun, aka AY, a popular comedian and filmmaker, has stated that his late mother’s final instruction to him before her death changed his life.

He made the announcement while appearing as a guest on the most recent episode of the Nancy Isime Show.

While recalling his last meeting with his late mother, the multi-talented entertainer recalled her valuable counsel to him, asking him to be responsible and take care of his younger siblings.

After their parents died, AY stated he saw himself and his siblings, including renowned event planner Lanre Makun and celebrity fashion designer Yomi “Casual” Makun, through school.

“I came home to ask for money that I needed for school, and the money wasn’t available. And then, we had lost my dad. So, she [my mum] was seeing me off, she was practically walking me on the street and encouraging me. She said, ‘You know Yomi is looking up to you, Lanre is looking up to you. Your younger ones are looking up to you. Don’t go and do anything funny, don’t be a part of any cult.’

“But the money dem never give me o wey I find come o but dem dey encourage me. ‘I know that it’s difficult, but then, just know that your younger ones are looking up to you. Don’t go and do anything stupid. God will do it at the right time.’

“Do you know how touching it will be getting all that messages from your mum, and then you get a call while in school that you’ve lost your mum?

“So, all of that moulded me like, okay, this is going to make me live a certain way of life. That was what gave me the boost to work extra hard to see myself through school, see my younger ones through school.

“It was her message. Her message was more like, ‘Your younger ones are looking up to you.’ That message was what gave me the foundation of everything that makes me stand out today.”
