Veteran comic-actor, Mr Ibu has disclosed that when he welcomed his first child, he prayed for him to look like his mother and not him.
Mr Ibu who spoke about his life in an exclusive interview with Punch, revealed he made the hilarious request because he knows that he’s not good looking and would prefer his child look like his beautiful wife.
Mr. Ibu real name John Okafor said he first had his child in 1992 saying that it was a joyful moment and he was grateful to God.
“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,” said Mr. Ibu.
He further added that people asked why he wished his son to look like his mother, without thinking twice he said he knows he is not good looking hence the wish.
“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”. He said.
