Popular Nigerian comic actor, Mr. Ibu, has finally spilled the cause of his big belly and recounted how he almost died in the process some time back.
Speaking to Nigizie TV, in an exclusive interview Mr. Ibu said he would have been dead by now if not for God’s mercy and grace.
Born John Okafor, Mr. Ibu revealed that his kinsmen allegedly paid his staff to kill him by poisoning him and that was caused his belly to become big.
According to the hilarious Nollywood star, his belly is not the reason why his stomach is big as many speculated adding that it was even bigger than how it is today but it has reduced.
If not for God Almighty, I would have been a story perpetrated by people who don’t love me.
I don’t take Alcohol up till now. Some people say I don’t take Alcohol yet my stomach is big, The belly is an idiot. It was after they gave me that poison. It was bigger than this before.
If you had seen it, it was like a foam. I took medicine and it began to come down. Before I wasn’t able to see my legs.
They took me to Nnewi, saying we had a show. They held me there and beat me up.
They beat me and then inserted poison in my mouth and ran away, leaving me there. It was my boys and dancers that came and carried me home. It was in Enugu that I woke up. God said no, you are not going yet.” he said
