To prove that she was from a wealthy background, Iyabo recently took to her Instagram page to share pictures of her and her sibling posing with her late paternal grandmother, Chief Mrs Josephine Nanu Ogunro, who she revealed raised her and her sibling.

She wrote:

“She owned Queen of Heart Hotel, located at Sapele, she owned filling stations in sapele, Lagos & other states.. She was the president of the Oduko women club. She owned Phino Guest House, one of the biggest guest houses, then at Obanikiro, Lagos. She owned a lot of properties, she had several other businesses, which included the sales of sugar, lands, gold, original coral beads, and laces.”

The mother of two revealed she had always aspired to be like her grandmother, but when she died at the age of 75, she realised that life was vanity as money can’t buy life.

She said:

“Just do you, enjoy life, stay happy, spread love & leave the rest to God.. nothing in life is permanent except change ( birth, growth & death).”
