He joked with his dad Samson, a Pentecostal minister, about being his favourite son as he takes pride of place in the room.

John then smoothly segues into the big surprise, saying: ‘On behalf of myself, I’d like to say thank you for everything that you’ve done.

‘I decided to do a secret project for a few months, and I’m here to tell you that there was no interview, that was a lie, this is your house that I am presenting to you.

‘This is your new house. it belongs to you, I wanted to present it to you today.’

He mused: ‘As your parents get older, they become your babies. They’re curious every day about who you are as a person.

‘I can tell that my parents are very much aware of the limited time a human being has on this planet

‘They’re really trying as much as possible to communicate. they’re always showing love.

‘We’ve managed to build such a nice bond, it’s cool.’  

John previously talked about the surprise during an 2018 interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

He admitted he had to tell his mum before they arrived at the venue – in case one of his parents had a heart attack.

‘My mum knew about it, she knew I got the house, I just needed one of them to know so that if one of them had a heart attack, the other can take them to the hospital’, he joked.

‘Mum is the backbone of the family, she’s queen. She done [sic] the most Oscar winning performance when he found out.’
