Veteran actors Victor Osuagwu and Charles Awurum reflect on their experiences with Mr. Ibu, the comedic genius, and mourn his passing.

Mr. Ibu, a veteran Nollywood actor, died unexpectedly on March 2, 2024, as a result of a cardiac arrest.

His two coworkers, Victor Osuagwu and Charles Awurum, with whom he had collaborated on multiple films, hurried to social media to express their feelings upon hearing the news.

They revealed that they had to stop working to handle the heartbreaking news when they learned of his loss while they were filming on location in Ghana.

Victor Osuagwu and Charles Awurum both paid tribute to Mr. Ibu and emphasized how his death will leave a major vacuum in the film industry.

Charles Awurum stated that, while he had started in the film industry before Mr. Ibu, he eventually began looking into Mr. Ibu since he appeared to be a very bright talent.

Awrum began performing in both his church and his school, so by the time he graduated from college, he was already a skilled and versatile actor. He entered Nollywood by accepting only “serious” roles, but later on in his career, he made the decision to focus solely on comedic roles, an idea that was initially rejected because of his “mean looks.”
