Comic actor, John Okafor, widely known as Mr Ibu, had to make a video recently to debunk a rumor going round about his health condition after rumors went round of him being down with stroke.
Speaking to Saturday Beats, the 57 year old actor said that it was his sister who started the rumors about his health.
He said ” I don’t know what actually happened; one of my sisters was also part of the rumor mongers. She just opened a media house; so she was looking for a way to make her brand go viral. I feel she should have consulted me before spreading that kind of news and i would have given her another angle that will not affect my image.
The President of The Actors Guild Of Nigeria was also part of the people that confirmed that i was sick, and it’s still very funny. The only bad incident that happened to me recently was when i was attacked at Nnewi during the christmas period and i have recovered. “I have forgiven my sister for what she did, I am alive and well, my wife was very angry over the news and wanted to take action but i told her not to do so.
I’ve left it to God to defend me”.
