An unreleased clip from the Real Housewives of Lagos has stirred controversy online, with veteran actress Iyabo Ojo facing backlash for body-shaming fellow cast member Laura Ikeji during a pool scene

In the viral clip, Iyabo Ojo, lounging by the poolside with other co-stars, is seen ridiculing Laura Ikeji’s appearance, suggesting that her body is not suitable for exposing in a bikini. Iyabo further insults Laura by mocking her legs, likening them to “Igbo Yam legs,” and implying that her reluctance to join the pool is due to her body shape.

During the Real Housewives of Lagos reunion, Laura Ikeji expressed her dismay at being body-shamed by Iyabo Ojo, revealing that she was pregnant at the time of filming, unbeknownst to Iyabo.

The emergence of the clip has sparked outrage on social media, with many users condemning Iyabo’s behaviour and pointing out the hypocrisy of her actions, particularly considering her previous stance against bullying.

Netizens flooded social media platforms with comments, expressing disgust at Iyabo’s remarks and calling her out for her insensitivity and lack of empathy.

In response to the backlash, Iyabo Ojo issued a public apology to Laura Ikeji and Faith Morey, denouncing bullying and expressing remorse for her offensive behaviour. However, some critics remain skeptical of her sincerity, citing her past feuds and confrontations.
