John Okafor aka Mr Ibu

Popular Nigerian comic actor John Okafor aka Mr. Ibu has revealed that he would have taken his life in 1997 due to the hardship he faced in life.

In a recent interview with Punch, Ibu stated that at a point in life, he had nothing to call his; he talked about how he couldn’t feed and no roof over his head. According to him the only option left was for him to die.

Three days after he had nothing to eat, the actor decided to jump into a well. Here is what he said:

“Do you know that there was a day that I had prepared to kill myself in Ajao Estate? That day, I was prepared to jump into a well because of the situation that surrounded me.

“Three days before that day, I had not eaten and I did not have hope of eating for the next week. I was only surviving on water and I hate it when I bother anyone.

“Most of my close friends were not bothered about my well-being even though it was obvious that I was not alright. I remember December 18, 1997, a friend of mine who I squatted with called me in the morning and told me that he would be going home for Christmas and he did not want anyone to be in his room.

“I assured him that no one would come to his place but he said he wanted me out of the room. I told him that I did not have another place to stay and he should trust me that as usual, I would take good care of the place. Though I was older than him, I did all the washing and cleaning of the house to the extent that I washed his pant and underwear. I did that so that I could have a roof over my head. But out of anger, that my friend went into the house, brought out all my things and threw them outside, then he told me to leave his house, he locked his door and left.

“From where I was seated, I was looking at the well. I thought to myself, ‘is it not better to end my life by jumping into the well so that when people return in the evening and they need water, they would discover my body and my friend would know that he was the reason I wanted to kill myself?’

“I went to the well and as I opened the lid and prepared to jump inside, the image of my mother’s face flashed through my mind. I quickly closed the well and began to wonder how my mother knew that I wanted to kill myself.

“My mother was still alive at the time; she was about 80 years old. I went back and leaned by the wall. A neighbour, Francis, was playing a song by Michael Bolton titled ‘When I am back on my Feet Again.’ The song gave me hope and I decided to stay alive.”

Okafor added that he ended up sleeping under a lorry which was a permanent resident for dogs in the area. He was there for a while till his story totally changed for good.

“I have no issue with your video and lyrics but my concern is on the beats. That is my original beat. Why would you use my beats without my consent?” the an unidentifed person asked.

Omar who is scared and feels threatened defended himself saying that is a complaint to the producer because artistes do not own beats. “I am not the producer. That’s why we artistes hashtag songs with the producers’ names. Mba nkulaga source.” He said.

However , Khalifa Aganaga who is the producer of the song came out to defend Omar saying the song is authentic. He said he is ready to fight this war and will not stop until it is over.

He dismissed the claims saying that they are goons who want to extort money from Prince Omar since he is just young and new in the industry.

Swangz Avenue’s Winnie Nwagi is set to release a new song entitled “Everything”. This she revealed in a phone interview with NBS TV’s Zahara Toto.

The song whose details she was hesitant to reveal will have its audio out on Friday the 14th of August 2020 and the video will be shot by the end of the month.

The super excited vocalist said that she enjoys listening to the song and that she can’t wait to release the song to her fans.

Nwagi revealed the news while responding to queries that arose from the video clip that circulated on social media where she was having a “provocative” dance with Navio.

In the interview, she was angry with persons that attacked her on social media over the video clip. The bitterly speaking Nwagi threatened to block anyone that doesn’t respect her on her social media.

She also advised women who feel insecure with their husbands being near her to always pull them away.

The self proclaimed “Fire girl” has had a number of hit songs over the years like Musawo, Jangu, Mataala, with several collaborations like Yitayo with Chosen Blood, Science with King Saha, and many more others. We wait to see how her new song will perform but we wish her all the best.
