5-year-old boy in viral ‘mummy calm down’ video bags first movie role
Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, a little boy who inspired the viral “mummy calm down” video, has made his Nollywood debut in a new movie project titled ‘Swallow’ by Kunle Afolayan, a Nigerian filmmaker.
Oreofeoluwa’s rise to fame all started as a punishment but it turned into a success story.
In 2020 during the lockdown, Oreofeoluwa offended his mum, and the woman was ready to punish him but Oreofeoluwa told his mummy to calm down. It was a very funny conversation between him and his upset mom who was ready to beat him but the smart little boy tried to negotiate his ways out of punishment by telling his mummy to calm down and rest a little bit.
