In an exclusive preview of the soon-to-air Supermom reality television show, Gladys Asuquo, the mother of producer-singer-songwriter, Cobhams Asuquo, talks about all the sacrifices she had to make in order for him to grow up as a normal kid.
According to the Punch online, the show which is in its third season has been tagged The Celebrity Edition. The executive producer of the show, Sola Fajobi, says, “The Season 2 of the show saw thousands of entries from people who just wanted to win the prizes and which turned out to be fabricated stories. Hence, we want to use the celebrity edition to confirm to viewers across Nigeria and beyond that The Supermom is just a way of showing appreciation to our great mothers.”
“Our superstars are human beings; they eat, they drink, and do the things that we do. They did not fall from the sky. They were raised, groomed, trained, and nurtured by mothers. They were once kids and now they are celebrated all over the country because of their talent and achievements. We are confident of the fact that Nigerians really would love to see and share from the experiences of their idols and their mothers.”
About his mum, Cobhamns said his mother is an extraordinarily special woman. “She’s absolutely amazing. She has spoken so much into my life. When I was a kid and I was playing with my friends, she would always tell me that I would be a great man. She raised me well but it wasn’t easy raising a blind child because it requires a lot of patience and detail. I am who I am today because of her,” he said.
Other celebrities scheduled to appear on the show includes; fuji Star, Abass Akande Obesere; afro hip hop stars, Flavour Nabania, Mr Olu of the Yahooze fame, Skales, Ice K of Artquake, Kennis Music act Jaywon, Tony Tetuila, and female drummer, Ara.
