Iyabo Ojo calls

Popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has cleared the air about some assumptions about her relationship with Lagos state’s illustrious agbero, Musiliu Akisanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.

The pair were cordial friends who showed up for eachother whenever it was needed before politics drove a wedge into their friendship.

It all started when Iyabo Ojo declared MC Oluomo’s candidate, Bola Tinubu, unfit for presidency and drummed support for his opponent, Peter Obi.

This caused bad blood between the duo, and some of her colleagues called her out for betraying Oluomo, and accused her of being an ingrate.

Following Tinubu’s win, the NURTW chairman went live on his Instagram page to throw shades at those who turned their back on him when he needed them.

He stated that when such people need a favour from him, they are quick to call him and he would gladly help them.

Although he didn’t mention any name, Iyabo Ojo felt the shade was directed at her, and she held an Instagram live session to address the enmity between them.

She acknowledged that MC Oluomo has helped her in the past but noted that it is not a sufficient reason for her to support his candidate.

According to her, if she had known that he was trying to buy her loyalty with money, she would not have accepted his assistance.

She also set the record straight about her colleague, Lege Miami’s claim that MC Oluomo gave her N2 million.

She said he actually gifted her N3 million but clarified that it was for her mother’s burial. She also questioned how Lege knew about it if MC Oluomo didn’t broadcast it to the world.

Speaking on the nature of her relationship with him, Iyabo stated that she was never his girlfriend, neither did she accept his advances.

Her words,

“There is no fight, there is no war, it’s all peace and love.

It baffles me in why people feel they have the right to you because they have done one or two things for you before. So you must support them. I am not from that school of thought. There is something I detest and that is trying to take control of someone’s life because you have done them a favour.

I woke up this morning to a video that MC Oluomo did.

MC I really love you, you are a nice person, I see you as my friend. I was never your girlfriend, I never said yes it you. If I invite you to my party it’s because I regard you. I have always supported you because I see you as a good person.

But on this case, I chose not to because I don’t believe in your candidate. That shouldn’t make us fight.

The 3million you gave me was to support my mother’s burial”.

Watch her speak below,


  1. That was a nice one … No one should feel entitled to someone’s ability to decide, just because of a charity deed done by or for such a person.
    Let’s try to be good humans with no strings attached!
