Known to be one of the most popular actresses in the English movies before she eventually traced her roots back to her Yoruba origin, Iyabo Ojo is equally popular in the Yoruba segment who started with Keppy Ekpenyong Bassey when she was introduced to the veteran actor by Bimbo Akintola in 1997, and she made her debut in 1998 with a sub lead role in “Satanic” and ever since, this petite mother of two and a graduate of Estate Management from Lagos State Polytechnic has not looked back.
Love her or hate her, her name will generate a controversy depending on your take, especially on the supremacy battle between her and another actress Lizzy Anjorin as well as the alleged secret affair with her co-artiste, Muka Ray. But in this exclusive interview with Ajibade Alabi, Ojo speaks on these and other issues including her project pink ladies which many people believe is a lesbian outfit. It’s an Iyabo Ojo exclusive.
Talking about your NGO tell us more about it
Yes it is no more Pink sexy ladies. We changed the name recently. It is no more Pink Sexy Ladies. It all started like a child’s play it is BB stuff among us friends. You see I have this passion for giving out. We want to help the less privileged children
Are all your members actresses?
No, they are not; we just have a few actresses there. We have business women from Nigeria, UK. So many important personalities are involved, so I have to change it from Pink Sexy Ladies to Pinkie Foundation. I am the president while my friends are supporters.
But people are saying the group is formed to encourage lesbianism?
I think that story came up because I am an actress. You known as an actress whatever I do is always a story, so there is no iota of truth in that story.
Lesbianism is not what I support or what I believe in. I am sorry for all lesbians, I have never supported lesbianism, I did not find it Godly. We just formed it to help one another, to help our businesses, to help empower women. We contribute money monthly for this project.
