Mr. Ibu, a well-known Nollywood actor, has been called out by his wife, Stella Maris.
She called the Nollywood star out for alleged domestic abuse.
The two were shown in a now-viral video engaging in a heated argument, with the actor yelling at Maris.
“Don’t let me get angry with you, do you hear me? Tell me what I want to hear right now. Stay there, are you mad?” the actor said.
In the video, Maris can be heard pleading with the movie star. She also questioned him about Chioma Jasmine.
“I get BP….who is Chioma now?” she had asked, further infuriating the actor.
Another video clip, Maris asserting that Mr. Ibu is dating Jasmine, whom she referred to as his “girlfriend.”
She further claimed that the actor, real name John Okafor, had abandoned her and their kids.
“My children dey here dey suffer. This man came to kill me. Don’t tell me it is okay, you don’t know what I am suffering. He came prepared to beat and kill me,” she said in a mixture of pidgin and English.
“I ran away from him. He came from his girlfriend’s house to come and beat me. He removed his wristwatch and was about to beat me, I pushed him and ran away.
“Look at where I am living, there is crack everywhere…inside house, there is water. Look at the car I am driving, nothing, my children do not eat, no school fees, and you are telling me to do what. Not today, your cup is full.”
But reacting in an Instagram live session with Daddy Freeze, the actor denied the domestic violence allegations.
“She’s my wife but there has been so much misunderstanding between us. That’s because she doesn’t want to understand the kind of person I am and my way of life,” he said.
“One or two things happened and it became a quarrel so we went out to settle it. I didn’t know she has something to push out on social media.
“When came back from the police station, she started saying all sorts of things about me. She insulted my daughter and said all hell of things about her.
“She also insulted me, saying different things on air. I didn’t do anything to her.”
The actor also dismissed the claim that Jasmine was his girlfriend and not his daughter.
Daniel Okafor, the second son of the actor, who also graced the live session, spoke on the matter.
“She (Jasmine) is 100 per cent (my father’s) daughter, not biological but adopted right from childhood,” he said.
“Maris, who is my step-mother, is being brainwashed by her friends….my own mother is married to another man, but she is in Lagos.”
