Charles Okafor, known popularly as Mr. Ibu has revealed that he prayed for his first child to look like his mother, not him.
Speaking in an interview with The Punch, the veteran comic actor revealed that he made the request because he knows that his wife is more good looking as compared to him.
Mr. Ibu recounted that in 1991, when he had his first child, he picked up the baby with gladness and with a heart of gratitude, prayed to God that He makes his child to look like his beautiful mother.
Mr. Ibu said;
“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”.
