In a report compiled by Leadership.ng, Oboli said, “I am very grateful for the immense support you have shown me."

"This did not come as a result of efforts on my part alone, but a divine favour from God who looked upon me with grace and favour and made it possible for my movies to find acceptance with the diverse audiences across Nigeria, Ghana and abroad."

"I can’t thank the fans enough for coming out in droves to not only sit and watch my movies, but also to go out of their way to convince others to watch my movies, so that they have become sold-out box office successes back-to-back."

"I’m also grateful for the endorsement deals and fabulous movie deals I’ve gotten because of your patronage."

"Also, I do not take it lightly when I say that my family has been so supportive, and the backbone of my career, so that I’m able to joggle both work and family without missing a beat”.
