Nollywood actor and director Charles Inojie has described the death of his colleague, John Okafor, aka Mr Ibu, as an “irreparable loss” to the Nigerian movie industry.

He stated that the late comic actor is irreplaceable in Nollywood, stressing that casting him alone was enough to make a movie a blockbuster.

Speaking in a recent interview with Channels TV, Inojie said,
“There’s sometimes you lose a person in an industry and you say, well, so or so person would replace him. But Mr Ibu is irreplaceable. Mr Ibu spears with every part of his body.

“He is probably one of the few people in Africa that would sit without saying anything would communicate a million messages with his facial expressions, body language and gestures without verbalising just one word of dramatic dialogue. That doesn’t come cheap. We are going to miss that.

“You have John [Okafor], you have a blockbuster.”

Gistmaniarecalls that Mr Ibu died of cardiac arrest at the age of 62 on Saturday.

No one is replaceable. Everybody is unique, there can never be another you.
