I’m not supporting Lizzy Anjorin’s husband’s ex-wife to spite her – Iyabo Ojo

Actress Iyabo Ojo has stated that her support for Folashade Olalude, estranged wife of Lizzy Anjorin’s husband Adegboyega Lawal, has nothing to do with getting at Lizzy.

Iyabo said this in an interview with Tofarati Ige published on Saturday.

The 46-year-old said she supports Folashade because of the “injustice going on.”

“I am not supporting her to get at Liz Anjorin. I am supporting her because I can see that there is an injustice going on,” she said.

Speaking on the genesis of her fight with Lizzy, Iyabo said: “Liz Anjorin and I did not really have an issue any more. The first issue we had was years ago. Some years ago, Sikirat Sindodo (an actress) was having an event that year and I walked into the venue distracted. I was waiting for someone to bring something for me at home, so I got to the event late. I was already upset. All of a sudden, I felt a sharp pain at my back. Liz was the one that hit me, and I turned and asked her what happened. I did not even know she was the one. She said she had been greeting me, but I did not hear her. I then told her not to greet me again. My response was triggered by the way she hit me. I felt she could have tapped me to get my attention and not hit me. The next thing I knew was that she came out and said that the battle line had been drawn. Meanwhile, she was telling people that I told her to call me ‘aunty’.

“We had that ‘beef’ for a while, and there was a time she went on a TV show, and was insulting my family and I. But, I still did not say anything. One of the elders in the industry then called me and her, and said we should both settle. I then told her that I never asked her to call me aunty. She apologised and said if I was truly sorry, I should feature in her movie. I initially refused, but later accepted. Meanwhile, she never paid me for that job.

“At another time, Liz blocked me on Instagram. She claimed that she was having issues with a United Kingdom-based blogger, Esabod, yet I still commented on Esabod’s page. I told her that I only commented on Esabod’s post when she was cracking jokes, and not when she was insulting her (Liz). I told her she could not stop me from commenting on people’s posts because she had issues with them. Similarly, I cannot stop her from commenting on another person’s page, because I was having issues with the person.

“Fast-forward to the current issue, when I realised that she was insulting me because of that lady, I decided to take it up. That was why I hosted her (Folasade) at my lounge, and even posted her account number, so that people could support her business. I also gave her a shop, where she could be selling her goods. When she told me that she was a single mother, who was struggling to survive, I told her that she would be my goddaughter.”

Iyabo recently rescued the release of Folashade from police custody after Lizzy allegedly ordered her arrest.
