An influencer on the X platform identified as @Bongoideas argued that indeed marriage is a profitless investment for men as he reflected on the life struggle of the late actor.

In his words;

“Before Mr Ibu died:

▪️first wife divorced him & took away his savings
▪️Second wife accused him of sleeping with daughter
▪️Consequently, he suffered diabetes
▪️Had blood clotting & dead blood vessels in leg
▪️His daughter squandered monies meant for his surgery
▪️His wife still asked for iPhone 15 while he was dying
▪️He sold almost all his properties
▪️His leg was eventually amputated
▪️Finally, he dies abandoned with no wife, no properties, no money and no legs

Legacy ruined! Marriage is a loss to every man!”

A user, however, countered his claim with the marriage of a fellow veteran actor, Olu Jacobs whose wife has been by his side while battling dementia.

The influencer insisted, stating, “Only Jacobs wife is still around cos the faunas she will make at the end will be more than the losses. That’s how all women think.”

Reactions as influencer belittles marriage and life of Mr Ibu as a man

Ovoh_of_Lagos said: “Who u marry determines how much life you have left.”

zakisolja stated: “I disagree. If you marry right. It’s a blessing. Marriage have made some men with nothing become somebody. Don’t blame the beautiful thing God has created because someone made a wrong choice.”

Ekweanuaobiagel penned: “Marriage was not a loss to my dad,my mum stayed with him in thick and thin and took proper care of him when he was sick,I am sure my dad died a happy man because he has got best of wife then,and dats how I intend standing strong with my hubby ,marry a Godly partner.”

A wrong marriage will pause and destroy everything you have built and ruin your life beyond redemption. May we not make marital mistakes in life. Amen.”
