The Nigerian Queen of Tiktok made this known during the first episode of the Real Housewives of Lagos #RHOLagos on Friday night.
“I have someone in my life, we’ve been together for a while,” she said on the first episode of The Real Housewives of Lagos, which premiered on Friday, April 8, 2022. “He’s a very private person, he doesn’t like the social media life because he feels I’m always attacked on social media, and he doesn’t want social media people, fans and haters, to drag him into it.”
Iyabo, a divorced mother of two, was married to a Lagos-based movie marketer at age 21 before their two-year union ended in 2001, a few months after the birth of their second child. She had attributed their divorce to getting married too early.
“I don’t think I want to celebrate with anybody until I’m getting married again, which I don’t know if that’s going to be possible,” she added on the show.
Iyabo is one of the six cast members of the first-ever West Africa franchise of the show, which gives fans a view into the personal and professional lives of six of the most glamorous women in Lagos.
Other cast members of the show include celebrity stylist and CEO of Tiannah’s Place Empire, Toyin Lawani-Adebayo; PR expert and chief executive director at Six Sixteen Agency, Mariam Timmer; Carolyna Hutchings, the CEO of Hutchings Limited, a real estate, oil and gas, and agriculture company;
Others include Laura Ikeji, a social media influencer and entrepreneur, and Chioma Ikokwu, a lawyer and CEO of luxury hair brand Good Hair Ltd.
“The Real Housewives franchise lends itself to localisation and we know our audience is going to love seeing the show reinvented Naija-style. We can’t wait to show the continent – and the world – another side of Lagos, with all the drama, high fashion and luxury you’d expect from The Real Housewives franchise,” says Candice Fangueiro, Showmax’s head of content, a statement posted on the website of Showmax said.
A new episode of the show will be released on Showmax every Friday.
