Iyabo Ojo is one of the biggest actresses in the country. She is also one of the most controversial.
Known not to care whose ox is gored, Iyabo often says it as she sees it and this has won her many enemies in the entertainment industry, with many labelling her arrogant. Apparently she doesn’t mind.
In a recent chat with Sunday Scoop, she said, “If I respond every time negative things are said about me, I wouldn’t be able to achieve anything. Anybody who has a destination in mind would not stop to throw stones at every dog that barks on the way. Many of these so-called critics are just jealous people who wish they have the type of life you have. As for me, I concentrate on my career and business. I am too busy to bother about what people who don’t even know me have to say.”
On how actresses are able to sustain their expensive lifestyles, she hissed, “I learnt a long time ago that you can never satisfy everybody. If actresses don’t dress well, people would abuse them that upon all the films they act, they are not rich. And when these same actresses dress well, some people would be asking where they got the money from. I have stopped responding to things like that.”
