“I’m Grateful to God that I was raised by my Grandmother who is not Yoruba” – Iyabo Ojo says

Iyabo Ojo Grandmother

Actress Iyabo Ojo has used social media to express her gratitude to God for receiving her training from her grandmother who is not a Yoruba by tribe.

In a video posted to her official Instagram page, the brand influencer discussed the gubernatorial and state assembly elections that were held in Lagos State on Saturday.

She said that people were hurt, intimidated, and denied the right to vote because they wanted to support their preferred candidates.

Speaking further, Iyabo Ojo noted that she will not be relating with some set of people that she calls her friends after the elections, adding that she is so ashamed of some people that she calls her brother or sister from Yoruba land.

The mother of two went ahead to state that;

“Today, I’m grateful to God that I was raised by my own grandmother who is not Yoruba because I don’t know how I will see myself if I have this tribalistic mindset. My father’s father is from Abeokuta, my mother’s mum is half Delta Igbo, I was raised by her. On my mother’s side, my mum’s dad is from Ijebu Ode. But does it make me a less Yoruba girl? If I’m to pick a State I’m from, I will definitely pick my father’s father state which is Abeokuta. It doesn’t make me a less Yoruba girl and it doesn’t make me a less Nigerian”.
