Sharing a photo of her Granny, Iyabo Ojo wrote, “This was believed to be me in my previous life..my darling late mum & dad named me after her bcos they believed She came back. This beautiful, strong woman is my late grandmother from my maternal side ( my mother’s mum). Her name was Late Mrs Alice Inneh Nee Ehighie, she hails from Edo state, Benin city …… she was a Teacher who later became a Very success business woman. a mother of 10, 7 still alive.
My grandmother was a very strong woman, she died early 1977 & I was born Dec 21 1977. Reason why I bear Alice Iyabode (our mother as returned). I strongly believe my motherly instinct came from her, she loved children and was a very generous woman. May her soul rest on.”
Recall that Iyabo Ojo had earlier revealed that she can’t let the public know about the man in her life, 21 years after her first marriage ended.
After her short-lived marriage which lasted for only three years, Iyabo Ojo had been saddled with the responsibility of taking care of her two children; Festus and Priscilla.
Ojo, a divorced mum of two has however disclosed that she has a man in her life but will not make their relationship public because of obvious reasons; social media drama.”I have someone in my life, we have been together for a while. But he is a private person. He doesn’t like the social media life. He doesn’t like to be out there. He likes to be on his Corner because he feels like I am always been attacked online. So, he doesn’t want the social media people, my fans, my haters to drag him into it. I don’t think I am ready to celebrate anybody until maybe I am getting married again. But I don’t think that is even going to be possible. I don’t talk about my love life but yes I do have someone. Fine girl like me must get bobo now, ” she said during Real Housewives Of Lagos interview.
