“Many Of These So-Called Critics Are Jealous People”- Iyabo Ojo

Nollywood actress and producer, Iyabo Ojo talks about how she handles critics.

Her career in Nigerian movies began in 1998, Since then she has featured in more than 150 Nollywood movies and produced 14 films.

In a recent chat with Sunday Scoop, she said, “If I respond every time negative things are said about me, I wouldn’t be able to achieve anything. Anybody who has a destination in mind would not stop to throw stones at every dog that barks on the way. Many of these so-called critics are just jealous people who wish they have the type of life you have. As for me, I concentrate on my career and business. I am too busy to bother about what people who don’t even know me have to say.”

On how actresses are able to sustain their expensive lifestyles, she hissed, “I learnt a long time ago that you can never satisfy everybody. If actresses don’t dress well, people would abuse them that upon all the films they act, they are not rich. And when these same actresses dress well, some people would be asking where they got the money from. I have stopped responding to things like that.”
