Priscilla Ojo, the daughter of Iyabo Ojo, recently shared the most significant lesson she has learned from her mother.
During an interview with media personality Jermaine, Priscilla discussed how she has never experienced depression because she comes from a lineage of resilient women.
Describing her mother, Iyabo, as a strong woman, Priscilla mentioned that she has never witnessed her mother cry. She learned strength from her mother’s example.
According to Priscilla, even when she goes through challenging times, her strong spirit and energy prevent her from staying down.
“I can’t say I’ve been depressed because I believe we come from a line of strong women. I am personally very strong, and my mother is a strong woman too. I have never seen her cry. We’ve never had moments of tears. We are resilient.

My mother is exceptionally strong, and I learned that from her. Even when I face difficulties, she can sense it, but you won’t see her come and say sorry. Instead, she will uplift me and encourage me to go out and have fun.”
Priscilla also mentioned a previous incident when she felt embarrassed by her mother’s actions, such as going live on social media about Baba Ijesha’s case and participating in “The Real Housewives of Lagos” reality show.
During an interview with Stephanie Coker on the “Me, Her & Everything Else” podcast, Priscilla expressed her initial concerns about her mother’s involvement in the reality show and the potential negative comments it could attract.
However, she acknowledged that her mother stays true to herself regardless of others’ opinions.
While Priscilla felt scared at first, she ultimately supported her mother’s decisions, recognizing her authenticity and bravery in putting herself out there for the show.
