Regarded as the most featured veteran Yoruba actress she said,

Nobody has ever asked me out, maybe I wasn’t destined to have many toasters. But to be frank with you, there is no how you will be in that industry that such harassment won’t surface but it depends on you as a person. Someone like me is now a big fish in that industry and there is nothing you can do again than to face your job and the well-being of your children."

When asked her opinion on why many Nollywood marriages are crashing almost everytime, she said, “It is a bad thing to follow your colleagues’ steps to define your own life. If someone like me had tried that in the past, I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am today, and I always advise them that we came to this world with different purposes.

Most of them want to belong,  this is one of the reasons many marriages are crashing in the industry, may God change their mind for better so as to have a stable marriage. My fellow colleague has done this and I must do my own at all cost, do you know where he/she got the money? As a result, they involve themselves in things they are not meant to do which will cause crisis in the union”.

Balogun starred as Mama Saje in a 1990 television series titled 'Erin Kee Kee', and has gone on to feature in over 80 movies since then.

She is married to fellow actor Rafiu Balogun, who was her boss before they married.
