Stella Maris Okafor, wife of star actor, Mr Ibu, has been accused of turning his sickness to a money spinner.
Consequently, a cross section of the public tore into Mr Ibu’s colleagues, accusing them of neglecting him, a claim the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, disclaimed.
“We are not here to join issues with anybody, but we want to set the records straight over the public outcry that the guild and his colleagues have abandoned him at his point of need. The guild has never abandoned any of its members in need, especially with health interventions. We have been at the forefront of providing necessary support to Mr Ibu even before his health conditions were ever made public, and this has been done with the full knowledge of his family members,” AGN Director of Communications, Kate Henshaw, said.
The thespian’s account was however contradicted by Mr Ibu’s wife.
The latter retorted, “Look at the situation of things now and the AGN people are coming online to say they are supporting my husband from the beginning. Why would they come out to say they are supporting him when they are not? They have not done anything.
“I contacted Emeka Rollas, I sent him a message which he read and did not reply. The message is still there, I called him and he did not answer my calls. So why would they come out and be blabbing? To come and say what they did not do. What kind of thing is this?”
This has, however, got actor Digidi DunHill talking.
DunHill in a social media post said the sick actor’s wife has commercialised her spouse’s ill health.
The only thing that I will say about my friend Ibu.
NEVER MARRY A WIFE THAT WANTS TO GET RICH WITH YOUR SICKNESS.
He should have over #40million raised by actors and friends even before her noise and rants. Kate Henshaw may not say it but I am not Kate, I am Digidi and will say it bluntly as it is. She is not just happy that every money is paid into Ibu account..She wants to be incharge of all the money given for his health.We have not seen her in any events hosted in his honour by Actors .She is working with Jasmine that is claiming to be his daughter but she is not, they want to generate pity for money. They know exactly what they are doing. The night that we celebrated Ibu last month in Abuja, between 7pm and 11 pm #millions of Naira was raised..This was within hours and not in days. She should stop painting Ibu picture as if he is a pauper, a phone call from Johny B Good will raise millions withing hours. What happened to Ibu BMW X6 and other cars? Who sold them? Does he have any car now? What happened to his prestigious office @ Amuwo Odofin we’ve had meetings?It is just a question.Some of us know how she lived with him in Satellite town.
I DIDN’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS BUT FOR RECORD PURPOSES, ACTORS GUILD HAVE SUPPORTED HIM FOR LONG WITHOUT PUBLISHING IT
I AM DIGIDI DUNHILL
