As many wondered where and how she was able to get the money which she used in acquiring the two-storey building that houses her joint, Iyabo Ojo who ventured into the hospitality business and became a food vendor with her amala joint which she called Abula Spot in a 2017 interview, disclosed that she sold some of her landed property and 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.”
