Ibru said when questioned by Sunday Scoop if she has ever been thought to be careless due to her work as an actor, “Yes. However, it did not come from strangers, but from some of my family members, especially my father. But, I wouldn’t use the word ‘irresponsible’; rather, he thought I was taking too much risk depending on acting as a career.”

Ibru also stated that she believed Nollywood was progressing well despite numerous challenges. She said, “I will say we are doing reasonably well, considering all the challenges we have had to deal with over the years. However, our progress is very fast.
