Elated Children Of Nollywood Actress, Iyabo Ojo Shares About Their Reunion With Their Dad After 6 Years And It Is Thought-Provoking

It’s all about a reunion; the reunion of a father with his children.

Mom-of-2 and Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo whose children- Priscilla Ajoke Ojo and Festus Oladunjoye Ojo are currently holidaying in the United States took to Instagram to share exciting pictures from their reunion with their dad after 6 years.

Festus Ojo writes:

While his sister, Priscilla Ojo writes:

”Hi guys meet my dad, we haven’t seen for about 6 years, I’m glad we got to hangout and reunite.”

Iyabo Ojo who started her career in 1998 and has since starred in over 150 Nollywood movies, has revealed that she got pregnant and got married as a result of her condition when she was 21 years old.

A few weeks ago, the Nollywood diva who was a guest on the celebrity Friday edition of #YourViewTVC talked at length on why her marriage didn’t work out.

Iyabo Ojo got married at age 21 after dating her husband for about 2-3 months, and has been separated from him for over 10 years now. In her interview, she said:
“I am not officially divorced that is why I still bear my husband’s name.”
One would think the reason for the fall out of her marriage was because she married too early. She however cleared the air about that insinuation when she said:
”My crashed marriage had nothing to do with my acting because I gave up acting immediately I found out I was pregnant. I just gave it all up because I wanted to have a home. I wasn’t known as an artist then.
People would say: who is this girl? It wasn’t as if I had an established name or face. It was just the beginning of my career. The baby came and it was easy to give up everything because I was not deeply into acting then. I was just a beginner. Making up my mind to come back to acting was a result of the crash.”
”I dont think it was too early for me to get married at age 21. At age 14, I was already being groomed as a wife by my grand-mother. The reason my marriage didn’t work out was because I RUSHED INTO IT” 
At 21, I think you are an adult, though it depends on the upbringing. My daughter is in the university, she is in year 2 and she’s just 16. You can’t compare her to a 16 year old girl in secondary school. Once my daughter is 20, I will start preparing her for marriage,” she added.
Of course, it was quite a huge decision for the actress to leave her husband and raise the children by herself. She admitted that she prayed to God for all the guidance she needed at the time.
Although it was not easy for Iyabo Ojo to take care of her kids by herself, she said she kept on saying to herself that everything would be fine.
According to her, sometimes, when things were so difficult and she felt she was about to give up, just looking at her kids’ smile and hearing their laughter would make her feel better and keep moving.
The 40-year-old mom said that there were times when she was broke and had no money at all. At such times, she said she would sell her gold jewelry and sometimes borrow money from friends to pay her children’s school fees. She said she kept on fighting for better life for them, just because she believed that every child was a blessing.
Iyabo Ojo is today a famous & a successful actress.
