Who would have thought to add comic actor, John Okafor, 52 to the list of Nollywood’s sexiest?
Otherwise known as Mr. Ibu, Okafor recently made news after he complained about being sexually harassed by homosexuals.
He said: “One idiot came toasting me o! That is true, as funny as it would sound. Something is happening in this Nollywood. These upcoming actors are being used by some of the established producers who are gays. If you want to get a job as an up and coming actor, you must sleep with them. You must be sexed to get a job. We are no longer in the era of the female actresses suffering from sexual harassment; it is now man to man.”
Okafor said the situation was very disturbing and spiritual. “Abomination! God has a lot of things to judge. Man to woman is also bad, but we can easily overlook that. Why not put your penis in the right place. There is something spiritual in that thing (frowns). Why would you bend down for one idiot to penetrate you, thereby destroying your future? You left God and bowed to devil…by the time you get up, you get up as a woman, while the idiot that penetrated you walks away majestically! Their payback is sudden death, and it keeps happening,” he said.
In another interview with GoldenIcons TV in Houston Texas, US, the actor could not contain himself. “I am sorry if my friends are involved. It is a virus and it is killing our industry. If there is any way in this world that people can make them stop it or kill it, please do it. God will punish you, because God did not advise you to do it. God designed woman and dashed us for free,” he stated.
In a related story, Okafor has accused his ex-wife of poisoning his one year old son, Mandela. The actor made this revelation while recounting the ordeal leading up to his son’s death by poisoning.
In January 2011, his wife and 1 year old son, Mandela Okafor (both pictured above), were kidnapped and held in captivity for 10 days. Then exactly one year later, 2 year old Mandela died in mysterious circumstances.
In an interview with Entertainment Express yesterday, Okafor not only accused his ex-wife of poisoning Mandela, but also attempting to kill him.
According to him:
“My ex-wife and her cohorts planned and kidnapped my wife and child; they were later released after 10 days. I paid the ransom and they came home twelve hours later. That child died a year later through poison. The facts later came out but I don’t want to act on it now. You will be surprised the day you hear what really happened, but I don’t want to go into details now.”
Okafor has been known for his humorous acting which is often characterized by stupidity and a sharp disconnection from reality.
