Iyabo Ojo Recounts Journey Into Single Motherhood

Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has taken to her social media page to reminisce on her journey into single motherhood and how far she has come.

According to her, she was sometimes depressed and felt like she was not capable of taking care of her two kids. 

Sharing before and after photos of herself and her children, the actress stated that her children being fine is her ultimate goal and not her making it in life.

Iyabo Ojo and Her Two ChildrenLooking back at how far she has come, the 44-year-old star advised that it is not too late to start over and although the journey will be tough, it will get better.

"This year I began my journey as a single mum with no direction. I was afraid, sometimes depressed, confused, I always had a lot of anxiety," she began. 

"I felt like a failure, a loser, I felt I wasn't good enough, I felt little, I didn't really know how to fit in or even start. How was I even going to pull through?

"I never thought of me making it in life, I just wanted my kids to be fine, that was my ultimate goal...
All I knew to do was to love my kids immensely and give them all of me & which inspired me to keep moving.

"Today I look back & all I want to say is thank you, Lord. It's never too late to start all over again...... it will be tough but you will be fine... There is always light @ the end of the tunnel."

Iyabo Ojo married a Lagos-based marketer in 1999 when she was only 21. Together, they have a son – Felix Ojo – and a daughter – Priscilla Ajoke Ojo.

She is currently divorced from her husband.
