When asked in an interview about her childhood experiences, she revealed:
“I didn’t grow up in an expensive neighborhood; though it wasn’t also a ghetto. There were a lot of children in the compound where I grew up and we used to play a lot. My nickname as a child was Sibi Onike (plastic spoon) and I would tell you the story behind it. Whenever it was time to go to school, I always found one reason or the other why I could not go because I hated school as a kid.
I used to cry whenever they wanted to take me to school and I would tell my mum that I wanted a plastic spoon, and whenever she gave me that, I would tell her that I wanted an iron spoon. Even when she gave me the iron spoon, I would reject it again and say I wanted a plastic spoon”.
“I also had another nickname, Bola on the mango tree. I remember that my mum bought me a dress with the inscription, ‘Bom’, and the elderly ones around used to joke that the Bom was an abbreviation for Bola on the mango tree. I had a lot of fun as a child and sometimes, I wish I could go back to being a kid.”

She launched Omo Ibadan Cosin Senta Concept, a series about a dumb headteacher who teaches ignorant students because she believes teaching is the only way to make a living, after gaining fame and recognition.
Parents who are ignorant but adamant about their children’s education will go to any length to ensure that their children are educated. The gullible teacher takes advantage of their gullibility to deceive the entire community into believing she is a teacher. Unknown to the parents, the so-called Omo Ibadan is a complete moron.
