Nigerian actor Digidi DunHill has publicly chastised Mr Ibu’s wife, accusing her of profiting from her husband’s illness.
The disputed remarks shed light on a problematic scenario involving veteran Nollywood actor Mr Ibu, real name John Okafor.
DunHill voiced concern about how Mr Ibu’s illness was being managed and cautioned against marrying someone who seeks financial gain from their spouse’s illness.
He disclosed that actors and friends had already contributed over N40 million for Mr Ibu’s medical treatment before the involvement of Mr Ibu’s wife became public.
Furthermore, Digidi DunHill questioned the wife’s motives in handling the monies raised for her husband’s medical care.
He said that all of the money was being placed into Mr. Ibu’s account, but the wife wanted control.
He said; “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.
“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.”
