Iyabo Ojo finally opens up on her failed marriage, says she married ‘too’ early

Movie star, Iyabo Ojo has preached against the trend of getting married at an early age.

The beautiful single mum of two revealed that her first marriage would have lasted longer if she had married at a mature age.

Speaking  at the one year anniversary of her Fespris beauty and spa in Lagos on Sunday,
the Actress  who got married to her first husband at age of 21,
admitted that her first marriage crashed because of her immaturity, but
was quick to add that she had since grown up to correct mistakes that
led to the break up.

 “It was not an easy decision but I had to
take it because it was getting to a point that I was not finding
fulfilment in the marriage, so I had to move on with my life. I never
knew what marriage entailed when i embraced it at first and it was
difficult for me to handle it very well.
“I went
through a lot before falling in love again. I had to wait because I
wanted to be sure it was the right move. My kids are growing up and I
don’t want to tell them stories that touch the heart.

“My new man
has been a blessing to us all. I am happy that I made the right
decision. My career is on point and you can see what I have done in the
last two years. Those things would not have been successful if my man
didn’t stand by me”, she said.



  1. iyabo is good you learn early, l like your courage and decency. just take care of your children they are your blessing. it is not easy for actresses to maintain home because of their job except the lucky one like omotola

    1. Omotola was not lucky,it takes a woman and man to work on their marriage.,especially the woman.Men by nature are domineering even if there is money and especially if there is no money because either way,by our culture,women are expected to be submissive.I wish her all the best and wisdom and wish men could learn to respect their wives more.Not FB love please

  2. I don't see getting married at 21 young oooo. I think what matters in marriage is understanding btw d couples involved. Allowing a woman live her dream is very important.

  3. Age is not an excuse. Some women married before clocking 21 and still made a success of d marriage. While some entered into it at 30yrs old and came out of it immediately. People need some level of maturity mentally, emotionally, physiologically, financially, materially etc
