Despite it being over two weeks since Ini Edo clocked 40 on April 23rd, many tributes are still pouring in for the actress.
Denrele Edun revealed how the actress hated him from the first time she sighted him for no reason. However, getting to know him better, she came to understand him and drew him into her inner circle.
“The first time I saw you, I actually didn’t like you. But now I’ve come to understand you, I dey your corner,” Ini told me at the opening of her lounge. And that’s Ini for you, blunt, truthful, politely sarcastic with those all-pervading eyeballs of hers that see everything (even if she pretends to be unaware).
My WCW for life! Welcome to the 4th floor @iniedo e fit you gannn!!! Better late than never, a happy 40th to the dangerously deliciously sexy Iniobong Edo Ekim. I don’t joke with my skin, Ini will tell you. It’s my unique selling point, she will add.
I recall dragging her sometime in 2009 to the Soundcity studios in Lekki, for her star host episode. That day ehhh? Electrifying excitement in the office! The entire production, post production, management, admin and media team gathered in the studio to watch her. All male at that!! I was worried that she might get uncomfortable and postpone the recording. She didn’t mind, actually. She told me, “They want a show right?? I’ll give it to them!”. We laughed hard after that. And that’s INI; Bold, Brazen, Unstoppable and a Fire all of seething Energy! Mogulette of life!
