Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos governor, has finally met with Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, a little boy in the viral “mummy calm down” video.
The governor invited the boy and his family to his office on Saturday, 8th August, 2020.
Oreofeoluwa had become an instant sensation on social media platforms after a video went viral of him in tears from his mum’s scolding while confidently telling her to “calm down” and give him a “last chance”.
The video had attracted the governor’s attention and he requested to meet the little boy.
It had also inspired Sanwo-Olu’s Eid-el-Kabir message to Muslim faithfuls and inhabitants of the state wherein he urged them to maintain calm amid the COVID-19 crisis.
“The exchange was indeed funny, but it depicts the efforts parents put in moulding children into responsible adults. I want to assume that his mom indeed calmed down because the appeal was moving enough to make anyone change their mind,” he had said.
Sanwo-Olu had also said that he would be acquiring exclusive rights to “calm down” as a catchphrase.
Oreofeoluwa further left tongues wagging on social media recently after he said he would love to be a police officer to fight corruption during an interview.
“I want to be a police officer to fight corruption,” he had said.
