Tolulope Ogunmefun is known all over the world by his online social media name ‘Don’t Jealous Me’. He launched his YouTube channel in 2008 and it has been viewed over 41 million times. He has been entertaining fans, both young and old, with hilarious comedy sketches and vlogs.
However, the YouTube popularity became challenging on a personal level as he became known as simply being ‘Don’t Jealous Me’ when in fact he had so much more to offer. He tried to get into acting but was getting turned down constantly audition after audition which led to him having to take time out to find himself. He stopped posting as regularly on Youtube and really decided to work on his real dream of acting.
The hustle finally paid off and lead to him getting a significant role in popular Sky One sitcom Sick Note and an upcoming BBC 3 series called ‘Man Like Mobeen’. After the life challenges and subsequent breakthroughs, Tolu decided to develop a new inspirational project.
Inspired by what many parents told him about how he made their children so happy and also by the birth of his own daughter, he decided he wanted to do something for his younger fans – write a children’s book! A book which was entertaining but also taught young children good morals. This lead to him writing The Frog and his Dancing Shoes and there are limited copies available now for you to buy for a young loved one this Christmas!
The Frog and his Dancing Shoes is a 40-page picture book about a frog who has a special talent for dancing and entertaining his friends with his dancing shoes. One friend is jealous and plans a sneaky trick to take the shoes away from the frog. Through patience and kindness, the frog teaches his friends the importance of recognising and celebrating talents in this cheerful story about sharing, forgiveness and friendship.
Join the Frog in the park as he twirls and dances his way into your heart with valuable lessons about jealousy, the dangers of taking things that don’t belong to you and why helping others is fun and uplifting.
