Iyabo Ojo: No Love Without Money, I Don’t Fancy Poor Men Because I Don’t Want To Die In Poverty

October 15, 2017 – Iyabo Ojo: There Is No Love Without Money, I Can Never Marry A Poor Man Because My Lifestyle Is Expensive

“I Don’t Fancy Poor Men Because I Don’t Want To Die In Poverty” – Iyabo Ojo

Abula Spot restaurant owner, Iyabo Ojo has once again stood her ground on marriage and money.

The mother of 2 who is now a breadwinner of 7 people told The Entertainer at her restaurant in Lekki over the week that she chose not to remarry quickly after her marriage crashed because her lifestyle is expensive.

She went on to say she will not fall for any man anyhow except the wealthy ones who can fund her lavish lifestyle.

“Then, I used to say that I didn’t want to get married again because of the stress involved. Now, I have had a rethink. But I can’t marry a poor man. Some people will say I shouldn’t say that, but I am a blunt person. For someone like me, there is no love without money. I am a celebrity and I am expected to maintain a certain lifestyle, which is expensive.”

“I have a lot of responsibilities. As a breadwinner and celebrity, how do you expect me to marry a poor man? Where do you expect us to start from? I am not ready to add any man’s problems to mine. I don’t need the man to be very rich, but he must be able to feed himself and me. You don’t even have to cater for my other responsibilities.”

“We all have our defects. When you keep looking for an ideal man, a good one will pass you by. I just need a man who is responsible for himself first before me. Once he is hungry for success, every other thing will follow.”

“The kind of man I want in my life has to be more successful than me. When I bought my personal assistant a car, people said I didn’t want her to marry. I told them that I don’t expect her to marry someone who does not have a car as well. You say what you want out of life; we shouldn’t deceive ourselves. It is a choice to die in poverty and I have chosen not to die in poverty. I cannot flow with someone who wants to die in poverty”.

    What can l say. In reality, it is true. So l won’t be surprise if at the end of the day there is no husband. I wonder what her excellency can offer that other women cannot offer. Is good she has made her point, it’s left to any man worth her to dig in. She has already stated her own understanding of marriage.

    Ride on girl, you will end up being a public toilet for the rich and famous. Since you have let everyone know what you want, no one dating you will take you serious. They will come to you when they feel to have a different taste. Forget it if you are hoping of marrying for real.

    So she can’t help a man to achieve in life. Thats so stupid of her. Men celebrate women that stand by them when they were no one, not people like you that only come to taste when the food is done. I believe ur jazz they shark you
