    Walata was a name he got recently, he used to be JIMI from the flick where he was married to Jide's "dwarf" daughter, and they thought he was with her for the money and all that BS and he had to prove himself.

    Very simple, it was d movie where her son janded and was always sending her stuff and she used to show off to other people. Either that or that show with Mama mi leko. But yeah they were both in the flick, and she always wore one of 'em big ass geles that was multicoloured (dat was d reigning gele in the early 90s)

    They often get names from a movie that put them out-there.

    Toyin Adegbola got the name "ashewo" from the flick "Ashewo To Re Mecca" where she got her break. That confirms the genaral comment in the last reply.

    TOYIN AFOLAYAN AKA LOLA IDIJE

    Lola idije was coined from an early 90's flick where Toyin Afolayan was suggar mummy to lots of young men and in the process used their semen to do money making jazz. When she was given gifts by older men though, she'd later dump them and say ''IDI TI JE ELEYI O''mEANING BOTTOM DON CHOP THIS ONE-you aint getting it back:D
