How old is Iyabo Ojo? This is definitely one of the most popular questions on the lips of fans of the fair-skinned and beautiful Nigerian actress, producer and director.
Born Alice Iyabo Ogunro and better known by her stage name as Iyabo Ojo, the Nigerian screen diva was born on 21st of December 1977 in Lagos, although her father was from Abeokuta.
Gaining a bit of experience from being involved in a drama group while in secondary school, Iyabo Ojo commenced her acting career in 1998 by approaching Bimbo Akintola after watching one of her movies and solicited for her help to make her acting dream come true.
Bimbo Akintola fulfilled her promise and helped her. With her guidance, Iyabo registered with the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) and introduced her lot of people in the movie industry. Since then, Iyabo never looked back and has become a household name on the lips of every Nigerian. To her credit, Iyabo has written and starred in numerous Nigerian films; her first being in a 1998 film titled “Satanic”.
She has also gone on to produce her own films. Iyabo Ojo is a single mother of two. She married a Lagos-based movie marketer in 1999 at the age of 21, and took a break from her career when she delivered a son and then a daughter (born in 1999 and 2001 respectively).
Iyabo has attributed the breakup of her first marriage to getting married at a young age. Apart from acting, the Nigerian screen diva has soft spot for less privileged kids. She launched her NGO, Pinkies Foundation on May 2011 to cater for children with special needs and the less privileged. To answer the question, the beautiful and fair-skinned actress is currently 39 years old.
