Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, a little boy who inspired the viral “mummy calm down” video, says he wants to be a police officer in the future so as to fight corruption.
The 4-year-old boy spoke of his dream career when he featured on an Instagram Live chat with City People TV on Friday.
“I want to be a police officer to fight corruption,” he said while fielding questions from Seyi Kehinde, the host.
The little boy said his comment in the video was to plead with Toluige Olokobi Babalola, his mother, not to administer disciplinary action on him.
He expressed excitement about the attendant popularity the video has brought to his family, while also lauding his mother.
On her part, Toluige, who also featured on the live session, said she never envisaged that the video clip — which was done out of sheer fun — could become an internet sensation in the blink of an eye.
“It was God that destined it this way, I never envisaged it would fetch us such popularity,” she said.
She said the development had turned her from the usual “everyday person with nothing special” and his boy to a celebrity, whom many people now crave to speak with.
The mother of two, however, dismissed claims that she was abusing the little boy in the video, noting that her action was borne out of her desire to correct him from further wrongdoings.
On how the video found its way online, Toluige said she had shared it with her sister in America to catch a glimpse of Ore’s trademark theatrics whenever she wants to spank him for wrongdoing.
She said unknown to her, her sister, who could also not contain her laughter after watching the video, shared it to a group she belonged to and consequently hit the internet.
She also revealed that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos state — who earlier requested to meet Ore — had already reached out to inform them he is working something out for him.
Toluige enjoined Nigerian parents to always dissipate attention into discovering the inherent potentials in their children, adding that such could be their ticket to stardom.

My God Is Not A Father Christmas — Adeboye
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says though God is merciful, He is not a Father Christmas and as such He can be “wonderfully angry.”
He spoke on Friday during the 68th Annual Convention of the church, which held virtually because of the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.
During the programme themed, ‘Wonderful’, Adeboye, who preached on the topic, ‘Seven Wonderful Things About God’, implored his church members and thousands of viewers from all over the world to turn away from sinful lifestyles because “Psalm 7:11 says God is angry with the wicked every day.”
The 78-year-old preacher said, “Don’t say I didn’t tell you, my children, I don’t know which convention will be the last one.
“The Lord may return before we have another convention. I don’t know when Jesus may return, but if any of you fails to make it to heaven, it will not be because I didn’t tell you the whole truth. God can be wonderfully angry.
“Watch your steps those of you who are playing games with the all-seeing God. God is angry with the wicked every day.
“Your life is in His hands and He can decide your last breath. But if you surrender your life to Him today, God can still save your soul and give you a brand new beginning.”
According to him, the size of God is wonderful, His love, mercy, glory, name, and anger are all wonderful.
Adeboye noted that the wrath of God could be dangerous, saying, “There is always one prayer I always pray. That’s my secret I’m telling you now.
“I’m not asking for money, I’m not asking for clothes, I know my God is more than sufficient.
“Only one prayer I pray: God, don’t let me ever annoy You.

“And He has proved to me that the more He loves you, the more you must be careful.”
Continuing, the pastor said, “It doesn’t matter what anybody may tell you, my God is not a Father Christmas.
“Oh yes, He is love and His love is wonderful. But, according to Hebrews 12:6, the Bible says whomsoever He loves, He chastens and scourges every son He receives.
“If He loves you and you are special to Him, be careful, don’t toy with Him. In Revelation 3:19, He says, as many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. He says be zealous and therefore repent. Don’t mess with God.
“If God loves you, He will not leave you on your own. He won’t allow you to go ahead and do whatever you want because it is written in Proverbs 29:15 that a child left to himself will bring shame.
“Hebrews 12:29 made it clear, yes, God is love but He is also the consuming fire. Hebrews 10:31 says it is a very dangerous thing to fall into the hands of the living God,” he added.
