Nollywood Veteran Actor, Mr. Ibu Dies at 62

Renowned Nollywood actor Mr. Ibu, born John Okafor, has tragically passed away at the age of 62. Reports from close sources confirm his demise at Evercare Hospital, sparking an outpouring of condolences from fans who fondly remember his contributions to Nigerian cinema.

While the cause of death remains uncertain, Mr. Ibu had been grappling with health challenges since October 2023, enduring numerous surgeries, including the amputation of one of his legs. Despite these struggles, there were hopeful signs of recovery, as shared by his family in November.

The news of Mr. Ibu’s passing comes as a shock to many, compounded by the recent loss of another Nollywood stalwart, Quadri Oyebamiji, known as Sisi Quadri, who passed away less than 24 hours earlier. The Nigerian film industry mourns the loss of these esteemed actors, whose legacies will endure through their memorable performances on screen.

As the industry and fans alike come to terms with this profound loss, Mr. Ibu’s family and representatives have yet to issue a statement. However, tributes continue to pour in, reflecting on the beloved actor’s illustrious career and the joy he brought to audiences across the globe.

In this moment of collective mourning, Nollywood bids farewell to one of its brightest stars, leaving behind a void that will be deeply felt but never forgotten.
