Iyabo Ojo : I Divorced My Ex Husband Because I Wasn’t Happy In My Marriage

Popular Yoruba actress Iyabo Ojo in this tell-it-all interview with Hip TV says her former husband married her out of pity because she got ‘belle’ for him.

The actress who claimed she wasn’t happy in her marriage said it was her pregnancy that forced her to marry her now estranged hubby whom she bore two children (a boy and a girl) for.

See excerpts from her recent chat with HipTV…

“I wasn’t even a star when I got married. I was a full-time housewife and businesswoman. I actually chose to come back into acting because I had started having issues with my marriage and knew it wasn’t making me happy.”

On what crashed her marriage, the actress said:

“Once you get married for a reason, then there is a problem. I got married because I was pregnant. That was a reason. My husband married me because I was pregnant for him; that was also a reason. Most men get married to ladies in the industry because of the celebrity aura around them, only to realise that there is a lot to marriage than that.”

    Keep quiet and stop confusing people you said he married you out of pity because he got you pregnant and now you telling us he married you because you’re a celebrity with this huge Foundation on your face.

    And the reason you let him got you pregnant was because he’s a sexwood actor so he’s a celebrity too!

    Abeg park well!

    Toyin Aimakhu posted it sometime ago and she was attacked by almost everybody. Don’t let sex turn you into a mother until love makes you a wife. This is about the best advice you can pass to a lady these days. This lady in question has made a serious mistake, and if only she knew what divorce really implies for her, she would go back to that man.

    Hi Steven Onuh, I totally agree with your opinion on those ashawobrity calling themselves celebrities. She divorce her husband in order to satisfy her sinful nature and have fun that no marry woman will have if she remain in her husband house. She was not happy in her marriage as if she was blind or forced to marry her former husband. Tell that nonsense story to a day old babies or mature fools.

    What were you thinking when you got pregnant. Perhaps the man was just using you to pass time. Reason why we should sleep with anybody anyone

    @Steve, ur remark is chauvinistic and parochial if i may say. I do not understand why she has to remarry. What if she doesn’t have anyone she loves or she is happy with her life? must she remarry for the sake of it? No!Cos it is her life and her decision to make and must not be dictated by anyone.

    No she is not because she dedicated her life to her children and her career and they are doing fine.

    That is the “national anthem ” of every sick woman. What I see here is, failed expectations; when a worldly woman naively encapsulates herself in the belief that a man must make her happy at all cost. In life, you do not run away from all that make unhappy, it is part of the consequences of sin. If your only job is making you unhappy, do you quit? What about our bad country, can we all relocate to somewhere else? Application of Godly wisdom is paramount, and finally, women must learn to think about their thinking(meta cognition) before they make such decision as divorce.

    Marriage is not all time a jolly ride in a roller coaster. Hence the questions before any marriage by the officiating ministers:- e.g… “Would you like to take Mr. Metu Nyetu as your lawful wedded husband? In riches and in porverty? In happiness and in sadness? In sickness and in health?

    You can never buy life partner with money, charm, being famous, collateral, desperation, etc. except love. It still baffles me that people still make these mistakes.

    Madam, you are obviously lying and I believe you married your husband because you never wanted to have your baby outside wedlock period

    He who wears the show knows where it pains. The bible says, in Psalms 11:3 if the foundation is destroyed what can the righteous do. Set a new alter, that is the reason the Bible says in 2nd Corth 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new., He is a merciful father,He is always there to guide us aright. Let somebody say Amen.
