Iyabo Ojo, the Nollywood actress, has confirmed she is in a relationship with Paulo Okoye, the showbiz promoter.


There had been rumours that they were dating after Iyabo revealed she was in a relationship with an Igbo man.

But in an Instagram post on Wednesday, the actress shared videos of them both having private time — as she marked her 45th birthday.

She also described Paulo as “my Obim” — which means “my love/heart” in the Igbo language.


“My Obim. Happy 45th Birthday lysexy New age, New life, New wins Cheers to Forever,” she captioned the post.

In the comment section, Okoye eulogised the actress while wishing her a happy birthday.

He wrote: “Happy birthday my Ezenwanyi. We celebrate you today, party time, pure heart, pure beauty”.


Among the public figures who also congratulated the lovebirds are Rita Dominic, Uche Ogbodo, Luchy Donalds, Shan George, and Angela Okorie.

Others who also took to the comment section to celebrate them are Stan Nze, Maria Chike, Nikki Laoye, and Jemima Osunde.

Iyabo has two children — Priscilla and Festus — from a previous relationship.

The film star first got married to Ademidun in 1999. The union, however, crashed in 2001.


The actress had earlier disclosed that she is in a relationship.

She, however, said she won’t reveal the identity of her lover on social media till they tie the knot.
