Popular Nigerian actor and comedian, John Okafor, famously known as Mr Ibu, has spoken to The Punch about his family crisis, career, and other issues.
Mr Ibu spoke at length about his marriage, and how extremely difficult it has been.
When asked about the state of his current marriage, Mr Ibu said: “This is my final marriage. If this one falls apart, I won’t marry again. This is my fifth and worst marriage because my wife adopted what is not obtainable.
“This feels like punishment; not marriage. I doubt if I am still in the marriage, because it seems she has already prepared her mind to leave, and I’m not going to stop her. I support her leaving.
“Each time I see her, I begin to breathe erratically, and it is not good for me, because I am not ready to die. There are opportunities God exposed me to that are of interest to me.”
The actor furthered: “Right from time, she had never allowed me to rest. When I was hospitalised and she came to the hospital, it was like war. She kept complaining that I did not care for her and the children.
“I made arrangements to give her some money, but she said it was not enough; that I should add something to it. I did, and after she left, she did not come to see me again throughout my stay in the hospital.”
