Popular Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo addressed her recent fracas with Isaac Fayose, brother of former Ekiti state governor on Instagram.
Fayose had shared a video of a plate of pepper soup that cost him N7000 but only contained three pieces of bone.
In her recent video, the actress explained that she was informed about the development by her friend and Fayose’s cousin, Toyin Lawani (Tiannah), and she immediately requested for his bank account to initiate a refund.

According to her, Lawani didn’t respond to the message early enough and by the next morning, it was the first order of business she instructed her manager and supervisor to attend to.
Ojo said she made sure to tell her workers to prepare a fresh plate of fish pepper soup as compensation for the unsatisfactory service encountered by Fayose.
The actress, however, noted that it became a surprise when other people started sending her the video from Lawani, and that was when she realised that Fayose had uploaded the video to social media.
Ojo queried Fayose's motive and suggested that he only wanted to ruin the reputation of her business. According to her, there was no need to make the video public when efforts were already underway to address his complaints.

Customers aren't wrong to complain
During a brief chat with Legit.ng businesswoman and owner of Kemzy's Collections submitted that customers aren't wrong to air their grievances online.
She, however, added that they must also understand that business owners are human beings.
"It's not wrong to complain, but the way and manner they go about it matter a lot. Some people tend to be rude and sound nasty. They forget that business owners are human beings too, they can easily snap back if they are not in a good mood."
Drawing from her experience, the businesswoman maintained that she has seen a lot and has come to the conclusion that it's always better to take the higher road.
"I have seen a lot just within the short period of time I started this business. But it's good to maintain a cordial relationship as a business owner respective of how nasty or rude the customers might be."
