Mr. Ibu Says Homosexuality is tearing Nollywood apart

Mr. Ibu Says Homosexuality is tearing Nollywood apart

Yes! The problem with Nollywood has been identified, guys. By none other than the thespian whose acting is a joke.

Nollywood actor, John Okafor, popularly known as ‘Mr Ibu’, has opened up on the issue of homosexuality in Nollywood.

Speaking with Vanguard, the 54-year-old actor, who is best known for his ridiculous hilarious appearances in movies, disclosed that the movie industry is plagued with homosexuals, people he described as ‘viruses that can kill the spirit in the industry’.

“I fight vehemently against homosexuals; both gays and lesbians,” the actor stressed.

According to him, “In Nollywood men harass themselves, and women harass themselves, so they are wonderfully preparing themselves for the devil, and I tell you, they will all go to hell.”

When asked if he had recounted an experience on homosexuality, he recalled where he publicly embarrassed a certain man who had approached him, looking to lure him.

“The man that approached me will never come close to me again in his life because I humiliated him publicly. I called him out, and shouted his name everywhere. Besides, if it was by looks, nobody would approach me because I’m not fine,” Mr. Ibu said.

So I’m confused. He knows he’s not remotely sexually appealing, and yet someone approached him, looking to seduce him? I just puked in my mouth.

    Lol…. I don’t even want to imagine what whoever that approached him was looking for, because he doesn’t fit any specifications . But then, what do we know. One man’s meat is another’s poison.

    Before you descend on him for his looks, you can’t legislate on who people get attracted to. As for Mr Ibu, he just spoke like the typical Nigerian who’s ignorant about spectrum of sexuality & who quickly whips out religion to support his ignorance. As for ‘converters’, get to know the person before you take the plunge; you will know where he stand as per gay people. Even if he’s a closet gay, why will you want to get down with someone who publicly condemns you?

        Good point. Some people are more attracted to sexal deviance than they are to the same sex. If homosexuality was legalised and accepted they’d lose their attraction to other men

    Mr Ibu said this? Oh oh oh, Mr Ibu? The Nollywood clown whose ability to be outstandingly foolish pushed him up the ladder of success? Hahaha I can’t fit laugh!
    The man that approached you was either dying of one viral disease or just a less privileged man who felt you could help him out of his damning predicament!

    Dnt be confused hon. He might be saying d truth dat someone approached him. Believe it or not some gays will go for every big yansh dem see regardless of d face and body. Some will tel u to use doggy style so u won’t be seeing d face or think of someone else while fucking him.

    You know it’s funny how Mr Ibu keeps wailing here and there about how homosexuals are “destroying” Nollywood.
    First of all, what’s in Nollywood to destroy? We produce large sums of substandard Movies and we think that’s success?

    Secondly, It’s almost as if Mr Ibu is on some advert issh, hes been on about this for a very long time and after a while he kept quite. I think he needs to sell his market again, that’s why he came out again recently.
    For Mr Ibu to be considered a front runner/ success in the industry just shows how much of a joke Nollywood is. Forget his looks, it’s his idiocy I can’t stand in Movies. guess what? People laugh to that.

    People like Ibu (and our very own Make-believe expert on here), gives more credence everyday to that saying. “A fool at 30, 40 years is a fool forever”

    I think a certain menace who lives in PH watches a lot of Mr Ibu movies. Because they have a lot of things in common. They are both delusional, extremely unattractive, and feel that men are constantly trying to lure them. (Air quotes on Lure)

    Foremostly, Mr. Ibru appears to be a disappointment to Nollywood, with such flimsy, vague compliments without any logical argumentative foundations. Well, then I’m not surprised; many Nigerians are really terrible in making logical argument . The next thing they’ll be quotaing bible or quran, which they even don’t know very well, if at all. Finally, does this imply that the way mr Ibru actions in movie should be taken for reality?

    By the way, our tb brothers and sisters should observe body language before thinking of converting people.

    You all should blame the media. When you get used to seeing something/or someone too much on your screen certain likeness begins to evolve. Lots of people are attracted to their tv idols, so Mr Ibu can’t be completely ruled can’t possibly explain how 1 man’s poison became another man’s meat.
    Every one’s got that thing that make people sexually attracted to them. God puts it in them.
    If Ibu can be loved my a woman, he can be loved by a man likewise. I guess he’s just
