TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) recalls that sometime in December 2022, Iyabo announced that she was ready to give marriage a second shot.
During the airing of the ‘Real Housewives of Lagos reality show in early 2022, the actress hinted that she was in a relationship.
Again, in November, Iyabo, who has produced more than 14 movies, gushed about her mystery lover, who she said is Igbo.
However, as the actress marked her 45th birthday, she confirmed that, indeed, she is in a relationship with Paul.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that the actress was born as Alice Iyabo Ogunro on 21 December 1977 in Lagos, Nigeria, although her father was from Abeokuta, Ogun State. She was the youngest of three children, having two older brothers.
Marrying a Lagos-based Clearing Agent in 1999, when she was 21, Iyabo took a break from pursuing her career. She gave birth to a son and then a daughter (born in 1999 and 2001 respectively), namely Felix Ojo and Priscilla Ajoke Ojo, but is now divorced from their father.
She has attributed the breakup of her first marriage to marrying too young. She has spoken of her intention to stop using her former husband’s surname, Ojo.
In April 2021, she strongly condemned fellow actor, Yomi Fabiyi for sympathizing with Olanrewaju Omikunle (Baba Ijesha) who was arrested for molesting a minor.
On 12 May 2021, she took legal action against Yomi Fabiyi (who had earlier staged a protest requesting the release of Baba Ijesha) for making “defamatory statements” about her.
Her actions did not go down well with the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, (TAMPAN), and they blacklisted her on 28 June 2021.
