“This was believed to be me in my previous life..my darling late mum & dad named me after her bcos they believed She came back. This beautiful, strong woman is my late grandmother from my maternal side ( my mother’s mum). Her name was Late Mrs Alice Inneh Nee Ehighie, she hails from Edo state, Benin city …… she was a Teacher who later became a Very success businesswoman. a mother of 10, 7 still alive,
My grandmother was a very strong woman, she died early 1977 & I was born Dec 21 1977. reason why I bear Alice Iyabode (our mother as returned). I strongly believe my motherly instinct came from her, she loved children and was a very generous woman. May her soul rest on.”
Remember how Iyabo Ojo said previously that she can’t tell people about the man in her life because it has been 21 years since her first marriage ended.
