Actor, Seyi Awolowo, has revealed that his father has disowned him and some of his siblings several times.

Speaking during a recent interview, the former Big Brother Naija housemate, who spoke about his upbringing disclosed that he grew up in a polygamous home because his father, one of the sons of late Obafemi Awolowo, married three wives.

He said, “My father disowned me a couple of times. Not just me, a couple of us because my father married three wives.

“My father wrote letters to cut off his children, reducing our identities to mere names on a list. We all have files. ‘As of right now, your name is just Seyi, full stop’”.

Seyi Awolowo is the 20th grandchild of Awolowo, a Nigerian nationalist and statesman who played a key role in Nigeria’s independence movement.

In a recent interview, the 33-year-old reality star disclosed that he may likely follow in his granddad’s political footsteps.

The reality star said with the situation of things in the country, he might be tempted to become a politician.

He disclosed that he would love to see his family “grow” in Nigeria and enjoy the full privileges of being a Nigerian.

“To be honest I would have loved not to get into politics but with the way it seems in the country, it is as if I might have to. I would not lie, I would just have liked to enjoy and be on the backbone of entertainment,” he said.
