Ladipo, in a series of posts shared via her Instastory channel, recounted how things were not exactly a smooth ride after she relocated to Canada in 2020.
According to the media girl, she was jobless for the first three months before getting a job as a cleaner that lasted six months.

She recounted getting another job but leaving it after three months after it “almost ran her mad”.
“2 months later, I got a job paying me three times that amount and 6 months later I bought my first property in Canada,” her post read in part.
Ladipo said she decided to share her story because most people also talk about the rosy part but shy away from spilling the hard times.
