Unlike some of her colleagues in the industry (such as Ms. Saje, Oga Bello, Iya Ereko, Mr. Latin and many others), her social media pages hardly attract participation, even if someone decides to be on her “1,801 fans” Sleeping on the Instagram page for a day, apart from the actress who debunked some rumors about her health on September 21, 2017, nothing new was discovered. Regardless of whether she has a health problem, the comment section of her 13 Instagram posts are full of messages from her fans who “get well soon”.

As a result, she was flown abroad by her eldest son to receive immediate treatment. When she returned, the strong and talented actress had apparently lost weight.
After returning to Nigeria, Kudirat revealed in an interview that the doctor advised her to reduce stress-causing tasks. In addition, the actress also stated that she may suspend acting indefinitely in order to recover quickly with little or no interference. Iyabo Oko was diagnosed for the first time in a hospital named 68, Army Barrack in Yaba District, Lagos State, Nigeria.
