I wasn't born poor, love made me journey down poverty- actress Iyabo Ojo says

In a post on her IG page this afternoon, actress Iyabo Ojo, shared her story of humble beginnings. She disclosed how in the past, all she got from her ex was N100 to feed her son, her unborn daughter and other relatives living with her. According to her, she wasn't born poor, love made her journey down the lane of poverty and hardship. Read her post after the cut...


Be grateful! It helps u appreciate d little u have knowing fully well that there are better days ahead! A time had been when all i got on a gud day in our one room apartment where 2 of my inlaws also lived with us was 100 naira daily to feed my son, my unborn daugther n my self which didnt even come regularly but with love n gratitude i managed it knowing that i was still in a better place than someone who was suffering from one deadly disease that had no cure n i also believed that oneday i will have more than enough to go round bcos i deeply believed in my self. i blamed no one 4 my mistakes, i took out my pain n frustation on no one, i refuse to be lazy, i refuse to allow my mistake n situation rule n take d better part of me 'yes! sometimes i break down,most especially when my babies fell ill n i know say no money, hummm d tears where so uncontrollable but i never gave up! I got a job, worked as a sales girl 4 a while, sent my self to school doing part time, later got a better job n worked as a secretary, i was so hard working that in few months i was promoted to a site manager with a salary of then 18k monthly until oneday i lost my job bcos they felt a male was better off. tho they did gud by paying me a 3months salary upfront still i was very unhappy, i had 2 babies! i remember crying all d way home that i missed my bus stop, again i blamed no one n i never lost hope i then decided to start trading, i went into d business of buying n selling clothes, i started my own business with just 30k chai i lost alot of weight o bcos of d stress, dont be mistaken i wasnt born poor, love made me journey down that lane but now am glad i did bcos i understand what it is to be poor n appreciate every little thing i have achieved! Thank u Lord! Now am telling part of my story to help encourage any poor mother who feels she cant make it bcos she has kids n u ask ur self where do i start from, d society is bad, am too much 4 this job, i have failed so i give up, No No No u can be d best of u, never give up on ur self, start anyhow, even if u have to sell pure water or do odd jobs. #proudmothers #strongwomen#mytruelifestory #bemotivated #beinspired #begrateful

I didn't waste my time in reading this, she wasn't born poor who was/is her father? What's her family name? Please let her post her childhood pictures and passport let's see the life they had; abegggg! !!!! When they sit down looking for what they will say to be in the news they came out with stories

dee boi said...

Ademiju was not from a rich home either and her lies of not being taken care by this man is not true. Dis guy works with a clearing and forwarding company on ogunlana drive and wasn't doing bad. He took care of dis babe even while they were dating till they got married... dee

Very encouraging. I just left a very abusive marriage with two kids, a 2yr boy and the other kid just a week old. If not of my boys I would've given up on life. Though with a degree, I'm willing to start up even as a house help. God pls give me the power and strenghf to do this in Jesus name. Amen

joyous babe said...

Good for her, but u didn't tell u why u Left ur husband

Anonymous said...

How will that info enrich your family. Y don't u use ur minute brain to get the morale of the story. Bitter degenerate

APPLE said...

You "forgot"to tell us how you started f*cking Muka Ray in your husband's house and that he made you leave your marriage too. This actresses though.

I'll like to insult you but I think mother nature already did that by giving you a pea size brain.

So??were you living with them? So many men out there are not doing badly yet will never take care of their wives and kids

Amen!!!

Sweet faced said...

I see some comments , and i really am wondering what happened to our sense of empathy? coupled with the fact that a lot of us cannot if see the real message underneath the story... Sadddd!!!
