"This same Iyabo Ojo that I explained what a blog is to her in 2011" - Event blogger calls out Iyabo Ojo

Event blogger, Helen Ozor, has narrated her encounter with actress Iyabo Ojo when she met her at an event and tried to have an interview with her.

According to her, the actress looked at her, collected her notepad, went through it, handed it back to her and turned her face away. She also revealed she explained what a blog is to Iyabo in 2011. Read below...

I remember getting an invite to attend Queen Ayo Balogun son's wedding (#jjginger17) some weeks back. At that time, I had wanted to shoot the first video for my YouTube channel #partymomentswithhelen and I was so excited. After interviewing a few vendors/guests during the reception, I walked up to Nollywood actresses, Iyabo Ojo and Fathia Williams and requested for an interview. Faithia politely told me she doesn't grant interviews at parties (I bet she would have agreed if it were Ovation TV or Goldmynetv). Anyway, I was glad she wasn't rude to me. Meanwhile, it was my second time talking to her; First time was at BON Awards where she allowed me take a picture of her at the event and I had just started blogging then. Iyabo Ojo on the other hand, looked at me, collected my branded jotter where I had written my interview questions, she went through it, handed it over to me and turned her face away. This same Iyabo Ojo that I introduced myself to as a blogger in 2011 and she said 'pls what is a blog' I explained what a blog is, to her. I laugh anytime I remember what happened.
Truth is, at some point in your career, some people will treat you nice while others won't. Some will help you instantly just because they love your personality while you will chase and chase some people just to get something from them. Always remember that, It is your duty to keep pushing and never give up because you are responsible for whatever you make out of your life."


  1. Blog/bloging is an i.t word and I dont think it was so long ago that it got popular. So I dont think its a big deal if the older generation does not know its meaning in 2011.

  2. See why Africans are still backward. They always love dragging people down with unnecessary and irrelevant words. I am yet to understand the point or bases of this post by Helen.

  3. I still don't understand. What message is she tryig to pass

  4. All this fuckery actress showing off like they own tomorrow. Simply say no rather than behaving like a dog.

  5. What's the meaning of this now mtchew...because Iyabo Ojo has been on the news recently you too want to take advantage of it, u better go and sleep.

    1. ... . . . for the wrong things. That is how it rolls.

  6. So am thinking, what is the relevance of this story?
    In as much as I don't agree with having a wrong lifestyle I think this lady has been dragged down too much. Haba!
    So what is the purpose of this news, so we will see how bad she is or that she is not smart? To each her own. Let her be pls.
    Every one has a past or goofed at one point that just means we are human. This is too much.

  7. And am glad she has kept mum. She doesn't owe anyone an explanation about her life.
    So you guys should keep talking. She is obviously important otherwise she won't be in the news.

  8. So what? You the so called blogger, someone also told you what a blog is. Or did you know what it is from your mother's womb? Some people are just foolish.

  9. Rubbish!!! Everything she said doesnt make any sense! Celebrities rejects interviews all over the world. Its nothing new.

  10. Don't get the point of this write up....Because she didn't know the meaning of a blog,we should crucify her abi...

  11. Wats d essence of dis story? U explained wat a blog is to Iyabo Ojo so wat? Someone equally taught u about it. Looking for cheap publicity Mchew...
