Nollywood actress, Ayo Mogaji, has bebunked claims that she ever tied the nuptial nuts with actor Jibola Dabo and expressed how she feels about younger actors securing brand endorsements when only a few of them, the older ones, benefit a fraction from the industry they purportedly toiled to grow.
In a chat with New Telegraph, the ‘Dyed in the wool’ seasoned Yoruba thespian said she only had an affair with Jibola and never got married to him.
According to her, “Jibola was only my boyfriend, though we had a baby together before I got married.
“We never got married to each other. I’m married to a British Psychotherapist named Dr. Victor Ayodele Oduleye,” she affirmed.
When asked how she felt about younger actors enjoying and securing brand endorsements from blue chip companies when just a fraction of the older ones benefit from the industry they toiled to grow, she said, “That does not exactly bother me.
“It’s journalists like you that will help us to ask them what disqualifies us from such life changing opportunities.
“Maybe we don’t work hard enough, maybe we cannot sleep around and maybe we cannot quite do what the younger ones are doing or they cannot get what they’re getting from the younger ones from us.
“At the location where I am now, my director and I were discussing this same matter yesterday. What their criteria are, I don’t know, but I know if you google my name, you would see what I’ve done and the rest.
“It’s quite shocking that some people still think you’ve not done enough and that it’s only the new faces that can sell products and services.
“All well and good, if anybody needs my service, they will call me when the time comes,” the thespian said.
