Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Nollywood veteran, recently had a bizarre conversation with a teenager who approached her and called her his “spiritual mother”.


The actress, who shared a video of the encounter, said the boy walked up to her on the set of a movie shoot and said he was told that she birthed him, spiritually.

She further noted that “this is like the second time this has happened to me”.

Read below, the transcribed version of the conversation.


Omotola: So, who told you that I’m your mother?

Spiritual son: It’s a man I was staying with at Niger state.

Omotola: He told you I’m the one that gave birth to you, that you should come to Lagos and look for Omotola?


Spiritual son: No, he did not tell me physically. It’s something spiritual.

Omotola: So like a spiritual awakening, like a vision?

Spiritual son: No, not vision. Just like a spiritual message.

Omotola: But you first said you want to apologise to me. Why are you begging me? If I’m your mother, why are you apologising to me?


Spiritual son: I thought you won’t understand.

Omotola: So spiritually I gave birth to you but I didn’t give birth to you physically?

Spiritual son: Yes.

Omotola: Are you okay? What’s your name?


Son: My name is Chinonso.

Omotola: Your name is Chinonso… So I left Yoruba land to go and give birth to you spiritually in Igbo land.
