Iyabo kicked off her acting career in 1998 and registered with the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) through the help of actress Bimbo Akintola.

Her first movie role was in 1998’s Satanic, an English-language film. In 2002, she made her Yoruba-language debut with Baba Darijinwon.

Her film Silence, which features Joseph Benjamin Alex Usifo, Fathia Balogun, and Doris Simeon, premiered at the Silverbird Cinemas, Ikeja, in Lagos in January 2015.

In 2004, Ojo started producing her films, with her debut production being Bolutife, and subsequently Bofeboko, Ololufe, Esan and Okunkun Biribiri.

The actress at 21, married a Lagos-based movie marketer in 1999 and took a break from pursuing her career. She later had a son and a daughter: Felix Ojo and Priscilla Ajoke Ojo, but later divorced their father.

Ojo launched her NGO, Pinkies Foundation, which caters to children with special needs and the less privileged, in May 2011. She celebrated the fifth anniversary of the foundation on 1 May 2016 at the R&A City Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos.
