Dominic Nwuzor, the manager of the late iconic actor John Okafor, famously known as Mr Ibu, highlighted the global impact of the beloved entertainer beyond Nigeria’s borders.

Speaking to NAN in Abuja on Sunday, Mr Nwuzor, the CEO of Don Singles International (DSI), emphasized how Mr Ibu’s talent and popularity transcended boundaries, bringing joy and fostering reconciliation across the African continent.

“I vividly recall an instance where two conflicting tribes in Ghana found common ground through John’s performance, leading to their reconciliation,” he recounted. “In recognition of his efforts, he was honored with a chieftaincy title as the ‘Malangula I of Tamale Land,’ symbolizing the peacemaker, while I was named the ‘Ngulala,’ representing the voice of the peacemaker.”
