How My Daughter Reacts When I Talk About Marriage – Iyabo Ojo


Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has opened up about her daughter Priscilla’s attitude towards marriage during Priscilla’s 23rd birthday celebration.

Despite Iyabo’s hopes for an early marriage, Priscilla seems to have other plans.

Expressing her admiration for Priscilla’s hard work and success in various ventures, including acting and entrepreneurship, Iyabo shared her desire to see Priscilla walk down the aisle and start a family.

However, Priscilla seems to be in no hurry to tie the knot, dismissing any discussions about marriage with a gentle plea to her mother to refrain from pushing the topic.

Iyabo reflected on her own experience, having had Priscilla at the same age, but respects Priscilla’s perspective that “everybody is different.”

She said, “I’m looking forward to her beautiful wedding day, having babies, I just wish her all the best and I love her. One good thing about Priscilla is that she’s very hardworking and she started at a very slow pace, and I know it’s an age thing but now when I tell her ‘Priscilla you need to…’ she’s already ahead of everything I even want to talk to her about. And for me, I’ve always said don’t take away the ‘hood’ from the child, allow the child to grow and be themselves.

“I don’t like to put my children under any pressure at all so I allow them to be them. She’s doing well, she’s a brand influencer, she is gradually going back into acting, she runs her business, her clothing line, her bag line, so she’s doing good, she’s there. The only thing I’m waiting for now that she doesn’t want to hear me talk about is marriage.

“I had Priscilla when I was her age, 23, and I reminded her but she was like ‘Mummy that was your time, everybody is different’. I was like ‘You’re a graduate, you have a successful business, you’re doing fine’, she’s like ‘Mum, please! No rushing’.”
