Actress Ivie Okujaye overcomes bad medical scare, welcomes baby number 3

Nollywood actress Ivie Okujaye is a mother again; for the third time.

The super excited mother shared the good news on her verified Instagram page.

Okujaye posted a photo from her Pregnancy shoot and captioned it, “Here we go again…”This followed with congratulatory messages from colleagues and fans. 

Prior to her baby announcement, the Benin City born thespian had shared her struggle with medical issues.

“Had a bad medical scare & the Doctors said I couldn’t work.. (story for another day)Had to refund fees & cancel projects. Thanks to those who checked up on me, muchos gracias amigos ❤. We are here,” she wrote.

The mother of three had also issued a warning to casting directors and producers amid conversation surrounding colourism in the film industry.

The actress had taken to her Twitter handle to address comments she gets about her skin tone when invited for jobs.

“Sometimes these filters tend to make us look lighter. But nah, on ground I’m blackkkkk. So pls know this before calling me up for a job and then saying “oh, you’re much darker than I thought”. Nagode,” Okujaye tweeted.

The actress’s tweet brings back a constantly questioned issue of colourism which has reoccurred over the years in Nollywood with claims that lighter skinned actresses get better roles than their dark skinned counterparts.

This has also been backed by the increasing number of actresses who promote the use of lightening creams.

Ivie Okujaye is happily married to Ezie Egbo since 2015.
