Iyabo Ojo changes NGO name to refute Lesbian stories

Yoruba actress Iyabo Ojo started a foundation 3 years ago called Sexy Pinky Ladies which caused some people to insinuate that the female members of the group were all lesbians hiding under the name of the foundation to carry out their activities.

To correct this negative impression, Iyabo Ojo says she had no choice but to change the NGO's name to Pinkies Foundation. In a recent chat with Encomium mag, the actress who is celebrating 3 years of running the NGO talked about the lesbian rumours and how she dealt with it...
"It really wasn't easy but I think it was my fault. I think the name we started with attracted all the controversies. When it was Sexy Pink Ladies, people were attaching a lot of things to it. That was why we had to rebrand and tell people it is a foundation. We are just being focused because the bad press was too much. Some members even had to opt out because the impression people had of us. This is understandable because up to 80% of us are married and it was causing some of them issues in their homes, so had to leave the group for the sake of their homes. Some remained and their spouses got to know what we do and they saw that it's just unfounded rumor and they supported us" she said.
