Budding Afro pop singer, Ojayy Wright has recently opened up how his mother, Bukky Wright fame influences his music career.
“I think people are right to imagine that, so I would easily say they have every reason to think like that. But personally, I think it stemmed from the pressure to succeed my mother, who is an actress. So people just expect more from me”, he responded.
See excerpts from the interview below:
Don’t you think the pressure of being the son of Bukky Wright is weighing you down?
Well, you are right because it definitely affected my breakthrough a bit. As I said, people just expect more from me than the average person. But it isn’t weighing me down. I relish the challenge of being who I am and the position I have been put in.
At a point, it appeared you wanted to ride on the back of your mum’s success as a celebrated thespian.
I was never trying to ride anyone’s back. I am the son of Bukky Wright. People are always going to say this or that about me and I just had to learn to deal with it. I can’t hide who I am, especially if you have a parent as famous as mine. However, life has been good, I have been working on more music and movies.
It has a decent amount of influence on my career. But again, it has its high and low moments, being famous before actually becoming famous can mess with your head. But I am sure at the end of the day, my last name will still work for me.
