“Mr Ibu is Getting Worst Everyday”- Why we have not flown Mr Ibu abroad – Family

The family of legendary Nollywood actor John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu, has said that the reason behind the delay in the actor’s departure is his doctors’ incapacity to pronounce him fit for flight…….CONTINUE READING>>>>>>
