See interview excerpt
We learnt Muka Ray was excluded in Beyond Disability, which fuelled speculations that both of you are no longer in good terms?
Iyabo Ojo: There must always be an issue between us, but one thing people don’t know is that as a producer, you can’t keep repeating cast. That doesn’t mean you’re fighting the person that is not in your movie. The fact that Muka Ray doesn’t feature in Beyond Disability doesn’t mean we have any issue. It’s just that sometimes we change cast. We can’t keep repeating the same cast on and on. It’s just like Fathia was in Silence and not in Beyond Disability doesn’t mean that Fathia and I have an issue. So, it’s normal. One can’t continually repeat the same faces all the time.
Okay, how cordial is your relationship with Muka Ray right now?
Iyabo Ojo: We have a very good relationship. We’re business partners and we relate cordially as well. We have always been friends and we still remain friends.
But all we learnt is that it’s because both of you are no longer together as before, that’s why he was excluded in your last movie.
(Cuts in) There is nothing like that. It’s just a baseless rumour. I have told you nothing but the truth.
How much did the two flicks cost you?
Iyabo Ojo: They cost me a lot of millions. I don’t need to disclose that for reasons best known to me.
But you couldn’t have done it alone, who bankrolled the two projects?
Iyabo Ojo: They were sponsored by me. And of course, with the support of my man.
You have also told us that, but who is that lucky and generous man?
Iyabo Ojo: It’s not yet time to tell anybody who the man is. I am not ready for that. It is my private life and I want it to be left so. I want to keep it as private as possible.
Yes, that’s how I want it for now. You can’t be out there, and then throw your relationship out there. You get to have a lot of people get involved in the relationship and that will cause a lot of trouble for you. We have done that in the past. So, right now, whoever I am in love with should be kept out of public eye. All I know is that I love my man, we have been together for a while. And I love to keep the relationship as private as possible.
Generous man eeen… we hear you.
