Nigerian actor Digidi DunHill has openly criticized Mr Ibu’s wife, accusing her of using her husband’s illness to make money.
The controversial comments shed light on a contentious situation surrounding veteran Nollywood actor, Mr Ibu, whose real name is John Okafor.
DunHill expressed his concerns about the manner in which Mr Ibu’s illness was being handled and advised against marrying someone who seeks to benefit financially from their spouse’s sickness.
He revealed that a substantial sum of over N40 million had already been raised for Mr Ibu’s medical treatment by actors and friends before the involvement of Mr Ibu’s wife became prominent.
Furthermore, Digidi DunHill expressed doubt about the wife’s intentions in handling the funds raised for her husband’s health.
He claimed that all the money was being deposited into Mr Ibu’s account, but the wife desired control over it.
In the actor’s words;
“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.”
