Popular Nigerian Iyabo Ojo has revealed her desire for her daughter, Priscilla Ojo to get married at a young age.

The mother of two, while attending her daughter’s 23rd birthday bash on Wednesday evening, stated that she wants her Priscilla to get married early.

Iyabo noted how she got married at a young age and had Priscilla at 23. She wants her daughter emulate her so she can also grow with her children, like she is doing.

The proud mother of two further stated that she is looking forward to Priscy getting married and having children as she noted how her daughter has done well for herself career and business-wise.

Iyabo further stated that Priscilla always avoids conversations about marriage and she isn’t the type to put her child under pressure. In Iyabo Ojo’s words:

“I’m looking forward to her beautiful wedding day, having babies, I just wish her all the best and I love her. One good thing about Priscilla is that she’s very hardworking and she started at a very slow pace and I know it’s an age thing but now when I tell her ‘Priscilla you need to…’ she’s already ahead of everything I even want to talk to her about.

And for me, I’ve always said don’t take away the ‘hood’ from the child, allow the child to grow and be themselves. I don’t like to put my children under any pressure at all so I allow them to be them. She’s doing well, she’s a brand influencer, she is gradually going back into acting, she runs her business, her clothing line, her bag line, so she’s doing good, she’s there.

The only thing I’m waiting for now that she doesn’t want to hear me talk about is marriage.”

I had Priscilla when I was her age, 23, and I reminded her but she was like ‘Mummy that was your time, everybody is different’. I was like ‘You’re a graduate, you have a successful business, you’re doing fine’, she’s like ‘Mum, please! No rushing’.”
