Earlier this year, it was reported that veteran actress, Iyabo Oko, who has been abroad to receive treatment for almost 2 years after she was hit by partial stroke, has returned to Nigeria.She came in December 2017 probably to celebrate Christmas with her family members, friends and well-wishers. Then, she was said to have been in good health conditions. In June 2018, the talented thespian returned to UK and nothing much is being heard from her stable.
While she was still in Indian, Oko exclusively told our publisher, Gbolahan Adetayo that she will stop acting finally and strictly be a producer anytime she returns to Nigeria. Then, Gbolahan asked: “In the industry, you are getting old now but I want to believe that this is not the right time for you to leave the industry just like that. Which work do you think you can do now apart from producing or selecting movies to feature in?
My children are already planning another work for me to do. I was told not to be jumping around; they are planning to open a shop for me to so I can start selling provisions and also produce movies once in a while. That doesn’t mean that I will relegate myself from the industry totally, I will still be doing some jobs since I am fit again. I pray I don’t experience such again”.
With the look of things, it seems that the veteran actress has finally retired from acting as she has not been seen at any movie location almost a year after she recuperated.
