Why I Prayed My Children Should Look Like Their Mother – Mr Ibu


Nollywood actor, John Ikechukwu Okafor, better known as Mr. Ibu, has revealed that he prayed that all his children take his wife’s physical attributes and not his.

According to him, this is because he’s convinced that his looks are not good.

The movie star in an interview with Punch also added that when he made the request people laughed and asked why he said such.

“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,” he said.
