Using herself as an example, Ojo made a post on her Instagram on Saturday, July 16, 2016, encouraging fans to explore any opportunity possible, menial jobs inclusive to ensure their survival
As she said, it has not always been rosy for her. She faced several economic challenges, before her limelight
She wrote, “Be grateful! It helps u appreciate d little u have knowing fully well that there are better days ahead! A time had been when all i got on a gud day in our one room apartment where 2 of my in-laws also lived with us was 100 naira daily to feed my son, my unborn daughter n myself which didn’t even come regularly but with love n gratitude i managed it knowing that i was still in a better place than someone who was suffering from one deadly disease that had no cure n i also believed that one day i will have more than enough to go round bcos i deeply believed in myself.”
“i blamed no one 4 my mistakes, i took out my pain n frustration on no one, i refuse to be lazy, i refuse to allow my mistake n situation rule n take d better part of me ‘yes! Sometimes i break down, most especially when my babies fell ill n i know say no money, hummm! d tears where so uncontrollable but i never gave up!”
“I got a job, worked as a sales girl 4 a while, sent my self to school doing part time, later got a better job n worked as a secretary, i was so hard working that in few months i was promoted to a site manager with a salary of then 18k monthly until one day i lost my job bcos they felt a male was better off.”
“tho they did gud by paying me a 3months salary upfront still i was very unhappy, i had 2 babies! i remember crying all d way home that i missed my bus stop, again i blamed no one n i never lost hope i then decided to start trading, i went into d business of buying n selling clothes, i started my own business with just 30k chai i lost alot of weight o bcos of d stress, dont be mistaken i wasnt born poor, love made me journey down that lane but now am glad i did bcos i understand what it is to be poor n appreciate every little thing i have achieved! Thank u Lord!”
“Now am telling part of my story to help encourage any poor mother who feels she cant make it bcos she has kids n u ask ur self where do i start from, d society is bad, am too much 4 this job, i have failed so i give up, No No No u can be d best of u, never give up on ur self, start anyhow, even if u have to sell pure water or do odd jobs.
