WuzupNigeria further reports that preparations for Iya Rainbow’s 77th birthday began in August with Gulf Platform, a firm in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, deciding to celebrate the octogenarian because of her contributions to the theatre industry in Nigeria.
Iya Rainbow was born on 16 October 1942 at Ijebu Ode, Ogun State. She worked as a certified nurse in general hospitals in Nigeria for several years and occasionally acted in theatre.
She ventured into full-time acting after the death of her husband – Augustine Ayanfemi Phillips, who worked closely with the late patriarch of Nigerian Film Industry, Sir Herbert Ogunde.
