Mr. Ibu, John Okafor, has confessed that he wished for his first kid to look like his mother rather than him.
The renowned comedic actor said in an interview with The Punch that he made the request since he knows his wife is more attractive than he is.
Mr. Ibu recalled how, when he had his first kid in 1991, he scooped up the infant with joy and thankfulness in his heart, praying to God to make his child appear like his lovely mother.
“I HAD MY FIRST CHILD IN 1991, I REMEMBER THE JOY IN MY HEART; I WAS HAPPY AND GRATEFUL TO GOD. I PICKED UP MY BABY AND SAID THAT HE SHOULD LOOK LIKE HIS BEAUTIFUL MOTHER AND NOT ME, EVERYONE LAUGHED.
THEY ASKED WHY I WAS SAYING THAT AND I SAID THAT BECAUSE I KNOW I AM NOT GOOD LOOKING, AND THEY ALL LAUGHED. I AM VERY TRUTHFUL TO MYSELF; I KNOW THAT I AM NOT GOOD LOOKING, SO I DO NOT WANT ANY OF MY CHILDREN TO TAKE AFTER ME IN THAT ASPECT, THEY CAN TAKE AFTER ME IN EVERY ASPECT BUT NOT IN TERMS OF BEAUTY, AND AS GOD WILL HAVE IT, THEY LOOK BEAUTIFUL JUST LIKE MY WIFE”.
