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:
”That is my dad for all those who have wondered what he looks like. Even though I have not see him in about 6years it felt like only weeks ago when I saw him today. Long story short I had a nice day.”
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.
“I am not officially divorced that is why I still bear my husband’s name.”
”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.
