Over the years, I’ve mastered art of making money and saving – Iyabo Ojo


'Love wins here', Iyabo Ojo says as she flaunts engagement ring

Sexy Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, is not just a screen diva but a successful businesswoman with a huge fan base. In a recent interview, the 42-year-old and mother of young adults talked about her business and her 22-years in the entertainment industry.

According to her, over the years, she has mastered the art of making and saving money.

She said,

“I have been in the industry for 22 years and I plan to have a programme where I would talk about my private life, because I don’t really do that. Due to that, many people don’t understand what I do.

“The house was not something I just woke up one morning to buy. I had been saving for it. I save ahead for many things, including my children’s school fees. When my children were in primary school, I was saving for their secondary education.

“I had my first shop when I was 21 years old. I later closed it down because I could not manage it alone.
“As one progresses in life, one would make mistakes and even fall, but the beauty is being able to rise again without blaming anybody.

“Whether I am broke or not, you would not know, because I am always happy.

“Many young ladies in the movie industry these days do other businesses aside from acting. Meanwhile, it was people like us that started it. We made them understand that they could not survive in an industry where the pay is small. They had to have other businesses.

“Most times, I take loans for my business. Over the years, I have built a credible image and they know I would pay back. I work so hard to make sure I don’t default on the loans.

“If one is focused, one would go places. A lot of successful people take loans as well. Things have been relatively easy for me because over the years, I have mastered the art of making money and saving.”
