- The movie star lambasted her Yoruba industry colleagues for reacting to the issue while keeping mute during the Baba Ijesha saga
- According to Iyabo, her colleagues are clout chasers and hypocrites for suddenly berating Tope Alabi
Popular Nigerian movie star, Iyabo Ojo, has called out her colleagues in the Yoruba movie industry for their reaction to the trending Tope Alabi and Yinka Alaseyori drama.
In a 15-minute video on her Instagram page, the mother of two lambasted her industry colleagues for having a lot to say about the gospel stars’ drama while totally ignoring the Baba Ijesha case.
According to Iyabo, there are a lot of hypocrites and clout chasers in the industry because they could not speak up during Baba Ijesha’s case but are now readily taking sides with Yinka Alaseyori against Tope Alabi.
Speaking further, Iyabo asked if they had ever called Alaseyori before now to perform at any of their events or if they had ever posted or hyped her music.
Iyabo asked them where this energy was during the Baba Ijesha drama. According to her, they kept mute during that time or formed fake stories just to destroy the case because he was one of their own in the industry.
The movie star added that for as long as she is able, she would continue to call out these stars who speak up against other trending issues that do not concern them since they failed to speak up against Baba Ijesha.
Iyabo Ojo however maintained that she is not taking sides on the case because she has love for both Tope Alabi and Yinka Alaseyori.

"I love ur realness. So they can turn against Tope Alabi that used to sing in their movies back then? Even if she goofed you guys can correct her with love. Tope Alabi has been a tremendous blessing to everyone no doubt, we weren't sure she was referring to her in d video.. let us remember that no one is perfect. Let's thread softly on this issue.I would advise Yinka Alaseyori not to be fooled by comments praising her to turn against her God mother cos I saw a live video of her n Tope Alabi calling her "maami". Just please maintain your lane n continue your ministry in peace. People are wicked oooo. My 10 cent."
