Renowned Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo, popularly known as Queen Mother, has expressed her disappointment and frustration after a fan replicated her expensive and extravagant look at the recently held AMVCA 2023 event.
News about Nigeria understands that the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) is a prestigious event that attracts numerous celebrities from various industries.
The 9th edition of the awards took place at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Iyabo Ojo’s appearance at the event was nothing short of stunning, but unfortunately, a fan took it upon themselves to mimic her look in a humorous manner on social media. This act did not sit well with the veteran actress, who had invested a significant amount of money in her attire.

Reacting to the fan’s imitation, Iyabo Ojo humorously threatened to take legal action against the individual, jokingly mentioning involving her lawyers and dragging them to court for recreating her appearance in an unflattering manner.
“Please, i need an Idan lawyer, who has Oba lawyers number, i need to sue this guy……… nobody should beg me oooo, we shall meet in court ………. my $50,000 💵 dress, no wayyyyyy,” she wrote.
