Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor a.k.a Mr. Ibu, has a message for those beat women. The actor who had a chat with Saturday Beats, said; “My mother spoilt me so much while she was alive and she also taught me a lot of things. I flaunt my wife on social media because of the orientation I had.
Women should be respected and I am one of those that respect women so much. I believe it is a sin to beat a woman. God removed a rib from a man to create a woman which means that women are connected to men spiritually. Whenever you raise your hand against a woman, you beat your joy, success, business, peace in your family. Watch the position of any man that beats his wife and you would know what I am talking about. Praise your wife and tell her how beautiful she is. Buy things to make her happy because her happiness could influence your business. I love my wife with everything I have.
Our women need to be praised. I work hard while she stays at home to take care of our children. I don’t regret anything I spend on my wife. If I am outside Nigeria, I always shop for her and I buy things like a blind man because she deserves it.”
On how he started dating his wife, he said: The wooing period was so serious. She had a boyfriend and I was aware of it. They had a quarrel and I was busy settling it. One day, the guy sent her a text message which made her cry for two days. In the text message, the guy said she should leave him alone and that if she said should ever come close to him again, he would leave a mark on her body that she would never forget in her life.
I told her to wipe her tears and promised that I would replace him and be better. Months later, we met in Port-Harcourt and I offered her shelter that night. You know that they don’t leave a goat and yam in the same place; that is how she got pregnant and we got married.”
