Iyabo Ojo’s Instagram drama
Days after Iyabo Ojo called out her colleague, Fathia Williams, on Instagram, she has returned to social media to set the record straight. In a recent Instagram post, Iyabo denied reports that they (she and Fathia) fought over a married man who is based in Turkey.
Iyabo had the corrective cosmetic surgery in Istanbul in 2018 which went awry and the actress reportedly fell into a coma, a source close to the actress told PREMIUM TIMES.
In 2018, Iyabo traveled to Turkey with Fathia who was invited to a birthday party in her honour in the country and shared fun moments from the trip with their fans.
This was why, when Fathia turned 51 on Wednesday, and Iyabo did not send any congratulatory message to her, their fans knew something had gone wrong. Instead, Iyabo hosted Fathia’s ex-husband, Saidi Balogun, to a party at her lounge on the same day. Fathia and Saidi are birthday mates.
