Seyi Awolowo, a former housemate on Big Brother Naija, recently made a hint that he might be thinking about entering politics.
This was disclosed by Seyi during a conversation about the expectations society places on him as a child of Awolowo.
It should come as no surprise that he is considering his options for entering politics given that he is the grandson of Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the first president of Nigeria.
Seyi revealed he is Awolowo’s 20th grandchild during an appearance on Channels TV’s “The Morning Brief” on Tuesday. He also hinted that he would be tempted to go into politics given the present state of affairs in the nation.
To quote him:
“To be honest, I would have loved not to get into politics but with the way it seems in the country, I might have to. I would just have liked to enjoy and be on the backbone of entertainment.
“But I have a family that I’m looking forward to growing in this country, I’m not trying to ‘japa’. I want them to experience Nigeria the way I experienced Nigeria.
“You know being able to enjoy the full 36 states, go anywhere you want to, interact with other tribes. Just be a Nigerian in your country and not be limited to certain conditions and policies that can change at any time in foreign country.
“Since I was a child. People were always telling me that as an Awolowo child, this is how I was supposed to be, that I was always supposed to read books like my grandfather. A lot of older people always said that to me,”
