Nollywood veteran John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, according to Punch, said his sister was part of those behind rumours he was down with stroke.
After the news spread, Mr Ibu recorded several videos on Instagram, debunking the stories, saying he’s in good health.
He told Punch’s Saturday Beats:
I don’t know what actually happened; one of my sisters was also part of the rumour mongers.
She just opened a media house; so she is looking for a way to make her brand go viral. I feel she should have consulted me before spreading this kind of news and I would have given her another angle to explore such that it would not affect my image.
The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria also confirmed that I was sick and it is very funny. The only bad incident that has happened to me recently was when I was attacked in Nnewi during Christmas 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 for Him to defend me.
