Meet The Sexy Mr Ibu & Family: What He is Up To Now! How Africa Rates Him

John Ikechukwu Okafor, screen-named Mr. Ibu, is one of Africa’s most popular comedian. He is more popular than some African presidents. At least, he is more popular than Jorge Carlos de Almeida Fonseca – Cape Verdean politician, lawyer and university professor who has been President of Cape Verde since 2011.

Mr. Ibu’s comic character is riveted in sarcasm, folly and imbecility, yet to his fans, he makes them laugh.

Before hitting the screen and selling humour to people across Africa, he did menial jobs – hair stylist, photography et al.

He’s been in over 200 movies – Mr.Ibu (2004), Mr.Ibu in London (2004), Police Recruit (2003), 9 Wives (2005), Ibu in Prison (2006) and Keziah (2007), among others.

He is one of the most popular Nigerian actors beyond Nigeria and especially in other parts of Africa.

Those who have come across him says he’s down to earth. Joshua Oludare Olusan, a Nigerian radio presenter who interacted with him in one of his trips to South Africa says he is a cool headed man. “What you see is what you get. No film trick about Ibu.”

Beyond all these, family values are part of Ibu’s strengths. With him, family is very important and he holds his wife and children in high esteem.

He is one of the most scandal-less Nigerian actors – not even in the height of his fame – he was hardly involved in any sexual and fraudulent scandal.
He says he’s cooking a flick that will rock Africa will laughter and make us forget the pains of coronavirus.
