Iya Ojo, the Nigerian actress, says she has been in a relationship “for a while” but won’t reveal the identity of her lover on social media till they tie the knot.


The film star got married to a movie marketer in 1999, at the age of 21. She gave birth to Felix, her son, and Priscilla, her daughter, in 1999 and 2001 respectively.

The union, however, crashed in 2001.

During her diary session on the ‘Real Housewives of Lagos’, a reality TV series, the film star said she and her lover “have been together for a while”.


The actress also said she doesn’t have plans to unveil the identity of her man until they get married because he is someone who does not like to be in the public eye.

“I have someone in my life, we have been together for a while. But he is a private person. He doesn’t like the social media life. He doesn’t like to be out there,” she said.

“He likes to be on his corner because he feels like I am always been attacked online. So, he doesn’t want the social media people, my fans, my haters to drag him into it.


“I don’t think I am ready to celebrate anybody until maybe I am getting married again. But I don’t think that is even going to be possible.

“I don’t talk about my love life but yes I do have someone. Fine girl like me  must get bobo now.”
