Actress Iyabo Ojo Opens Up On Her Amala Business In Lagos

Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, last year ventured into the hospitality business and became a food vendor with her amala joint which she called Abula Spot.

But even as she opened the joint, not just a few wondered where and how she was able to get the money which she used in acquiring the two-storey building that houses her joint.

Reacting to the speculations, the actress claimed that she had to sell some of her landed property and also her jewellery in order to achieve her dream.

“I did not collect a loan to open my business, I saved. I had been planning to open this place for a very long time, so I had been saving. When I wanted to get my new office.
building, I sold some of my property. I sold almost all my gold if not everything. During that time, I sold one batch and when I needed more money, I sold the rest. I told myself to forget about gold for now because I know that I can make the money back later. With the support of good people as well, I was able to get my office building. The first lady of Kwara State who came to inaugurate the building supported me. Some of my godparents also supported me because I told them that I wanted to sell amala,”
she said.

Apparently, her new found love would eat much of her time if she wants the business to survive but during the course of chatting with Saturday Beats, the actress said that she has everything figured out.

She further said that selling amala can never make her quit acting. “I can never quit my career for anything. I am a very organised person. When you are organised, you plan ahead. My life is planned and that has helped me a lot. I knew I was going to do this food business but I waited till the right time. For about a month or two, I am not going to be filming so that I can look after my business. I have a structured plan for my business. It is insured, I have an auditor who comes to look at the records. Everything is well planned,” she said.

I’ll Publicly Declare My Assets If Elected, I Support State Police – Singer, Banky W


Regarded as the King of R&B music in Nigeria, multi-talented singer, Banky W has reiterated his determination to represent his constituency as a federal lawmaker.

While speaking in an exclusive interview with PREMIUM TIMES on Monday, a Federal House of Representatives candidate from Eti-osa in Lagos state, Olubankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, pledged to support the establishment of state police if elected.

The Wedding Party actor who disclosed that he was willing to publicly delcare his assets if elected as a lawmaker to represent Eti-Osa constituency, said his destiny is to stay in Nigeria and make his community and the country better.

Banky added that he decided not to leave the country, at a time many Nigerians are running away to seek greener pastures because he believes he is meant to empower the young people around him.

He said; “For me, it is about destiny and impact. I have lived outside of the country for a little over half of my life and I have had those opportunities and they are still there for me if I wanted to take them but I feel like my destiny is here.

“I feel like I have been given the success, the platform, the following and the relevance that I have because I am meant to use it for a greater good. I am meant to use it to impact my generation. I am meant to use it to empower the young people around me. I am meant to use it to make my community and my country better.

“So, if I run away because life is easier elsewhere, that will be running away from my problems and I am intent on impacting my generation and fulfilling my purpose, that is why I am here,” he said.

Speaking further, Bank W said that he is not intimidated by the ruling party and other mega parties, adding that he has new ideas to bring to the table and the community is ready for new ideas.

“The community is ready for people with vision and the intellectual capacity and for fresh faces on the scene that generally have good intentions for the country.

“For us now, it is about going door-to-door, community-to-community in Eti-Osa and letting them know that they do have a separate option, an alternative that is willing to try to do things differently and hopefully, to do things better.

“At the end of the day, if it’s the will of God and the will of the community, then we willl win but if it is not, then we are okay with that because we have been playing our role in trying to improve our community and that is never going to stop, whether we get the seat or not,” he said.

He explained that the reason he chose to run on the platform of a new party is because his party does not want people to handcuff their message and vision.

“That is (why) we have set up our own political party. We have set up MDP. It is a new party. It is self-funded because we do not (want) to answer to the powers that be. We just want a seat at the table of governance. We want to bring our own chair so that the only people that we will be answering to, are the people who put us in office – which is the community.

“And I think that marks a difference between what we are trying to do and what other politicians are doing.”

When asked if he supports state police, he was affirmative. “Absolutely. I think that Nigeria is too big of a country to be policed effectively on federal basis. I think that there are so many issues that are going on in our communities now that I think states should have the ability to run their own police forces.

“I know we have really great police officers but I feel like they are underfunded and not really supported and the bad ones make everyone else look bad. So, I think there is some reform that needs to happen in the police as a whole and I would encourage us to look towards state police.”

While stating that he will publicly declare his assets if voted into office, he said he does not have any political god-father.
