This is one hilarious photo of Mr Ibu at an event, making the people laugh as usual. This time it was his appearance that did all the talking. In the event-photo, Mr. Ibu exposed his body just to tell the audience that he was serious and mean business. Mr. Ibu will do anythings just to make people laugh. In a recent movie shoot with co-actress Anita Joseph, the comedian was caught eyeing down on the actress's dress looking at her (What’s John Okafor (Mr. Ibu) staring at?). Oh well, beware ladies Mr Ibu is a freak-comedian.
LOL(BeeAfricanEnt). Nollywood funny man John Okafor aka Mr. Ibu and actress Anita Joseph was enjoying a movement of quiet time (maybe) when a photographer mistaking flash his camera and caught Mr. Ibu eyeing down on Anita Joseph's dress or something else?.
It’s not always that you would get caught doing something, or sneaking around, but fortune was not on Mr Ibu’s side when he stole glances to catch a glimpse. Did he really? Or was he just turning his neck around to stretch from a long moment of sitting?.
For all it’s worth, Mr Ibu’s personality is well known and he probably wanted to say hello in a joking manner, lol!
