Veteran Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, ridicules a troll who called her an ‘ashawo‘ – prostitute – for expressing support for Peter Obi.
The mother of two had declared her support for the Labour Party’s presidential candidate while insisting on standing by him regardless of the outcome of the February 2023 election.
In her words, “I Alice Iyabo Ojo strongly believe in Peter Obi & I stand Obedient in my choice whether he wins or not because my vision & dreams for my country aligns with the Obedient agenda..”
“I do not belong to any political party, I also choose not to campaign for any political party, but I stand obedient for presidency… so help us God.”
In response, one Wale S. Akerele on Twitter attacked Iyabo Ojo by condemning her for supporting Peter Obi.
“Whether he wins or not, my dreams align with peterobi”
ALASEWO Iyabo Ojo @IYSexxy. Madam gboko gboko. Asiwaju doesn’t need your support Asiwaju doesn’t needs Alasewo support he needs decent women with class, intelligent woman keep your support OLOSHO. @officialABAT will win,” he wrote.
Iyabo Ojo, however, was not going to let it slide as she hit back referring to every woman in Akerele’s life as an ashawo.
“Who is this one, animal, place, or thing? ……….. Akowere, trust me, you’re a product of Alasewo bcos your mother, wife & sidehens are all bonafide memebers 😘,” she wrote.
