Article written by Gbenga Sogbetun on Ibinabo’s Jail term.
It’s interesting they way people have responded to the recent ongoings with Ibinabo Fiberesima. Ib Fiberesima is my cousin, first cousins actually.
When I first read in the news about a month ago that Lagos state was revisiting the case of her involvement in the accident I was a bit surprised, I got in touch with her and she told me to keep her in my prayers. Same also went for another court case about a girl who won a beauty pageant she organized.
Now what is of interest to me is the negative comments she has received concerning the new judgement. My prayer for us all is that we do not end up in situations that we have very little control over, and also that we do not end up on the wrong side of the law.
The aim of this post is to hopefully enlighten those who would like to listen to know the Ibinabo that I know. Ever since I can remember, Ib has been a go-getter.
Nothing stands in her way, nothing is impossible, and she speaks her mind. She is very hard working. I have had the opportunity to spend many a night at her place in Lagos and Port Harcourt. Ibinabo comes home most times after 10 p.m, stays up till about 1a.m, still working, and is up by 6 a.m to go out to work again.
The haters might ask “what sort of work does she do”? Wells she owns and manages AMC productions, has for the past few years been the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, an organisation she has helped transform, and thirdly she is always caring to people’s needs.
Ibinabo is one of the most generous people I know. She goes out of her way to help people to the point where people keep on taking advantage of her but that has not deterred her from helping yet still.
The ibinabo most people know is not just the pictures she posts on her social media platform, she is also like you and I.
She cries, she laughs, she gets sad, she falls sick, she gets angry, she has a bad,….. basically the same things we all go through only that like most other people none of it was handed to her on a platter of gold. She worked for it.
It’s a pity that she has to be the one who is going through this harrowing experience once again. God will be with you and I will keep on putting you in my prayers. o by the way, these are some pictures I took of her about 2 years ago in her house eating eba and Okro soup, just like all of us do.
