My father knew whenever I was on my period – Iyabo Ojo

Written by


Though her father passed on some years ago, actress Iyabo Ojo shares the intimacy she had with him before death. The mother of two, in an encounter with Goldmyne TV, recalled that she was closer to her father than the mother.

“My father was my friend; we only had issues when I got married because they didn’t want me to marry when I did. I started calling him dad when I was 15-year-old or so. While I was little, I called him by his nickname. The kind of family I come from we relate with each other like brothers and sisters. It was when I got into the Yoruba movie industry I started learning that you must address someone older than you as aunty or uncle. But I believe I can still call you by name and respect you. It doesn’t mean I didn’t respect my parents then by calling them nicknames.”



According to her, there was nothing she couldn’t share with her late father and he was always ready to listen to her.


She stated, “Whenever I saw my period, I would tell my dad and he would reply: ‘you just saw your period? Go take care of it.’ I didn’t grow up with fear, as I could always express myself. So, I passed that over to my kids too.”

But she admitted that she became closer to her mom as she grew older.

She added, “I know my father is very happy with how far I have grown whenever he is right now. I know my late grandma too is happy because she trained me.”
