Fielding a question about having an embarrassing moment during her childhood because of her curves, the actress made it clear she did not really have any awkward moments as such.

She said: "I never had any embarrassing moment per se. But I remember a certain man that used to call me ‘Iya Iyabo’ in Kaduna then, because of my massive hips. He was like ‘If you born, this your yansh go full everywhere o; because you never born, the thing too big’. So, that made me conscious of my shape; as skinny as I was then, my curves couldn’t be hidden."
On whether her curves has opened doors for in the entertainment industry, the pretty movie star stated that God has been the only one opening doors for her, not her curves or any other human.
"Curves opening doors? (laughter). I don’t even socialise. God has been my door opener, not curves or anybody," Omoborty said.
