Prevalent comic on-screen character, John Okafor, otherwise called Mr. Ibu who is said to fight stroke has turned out to expose and reject the report.
In a visit with Vanguard on Thursday, the on-screen character affirmed that he is fine, focusing on that he isn’t experiencing any type of infection or illness.
He stated, “Na so I hear oooo. I am robust and healthy. I am talking from my home, in Lekki.
“I have been getting calls from over the world since today. I don’t have the foggiest idea who is spreading this bogus news about me. I don’t have the foggiest idea what they saying.
“Na their daddy get stroke.”
The President of Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Mr. Emeka Rollas had before told journalists that the well known comic performer was hit by a strange stroke not long after he came back from his ongoing outing to Owerri.
Rollas was cited as saying “I am mindful that Mr Ibu is genuinely down with stroke, however he is quick recuperating and need a greater amount of our supplications at the present time.”
Okafor is viewed as a standout amongst Nigeria’s most capable comic characters. His silly acting is frequently described by idiocy, diverting stupidity and a sharp disengagement from the real world.
He has acted in excess of 200 motion pictures, including Mr. Ibu (2004), Mr. Ibu in London (2004), Police Recruit (2003), 9 Wives (2005), Ibu in Prison (2006) and Keziah (2007).
