Nollywood comic actor , John Okafor popularly known as Mr. Ibu has insisted that cooking should be done by women except on few occasions when their husbands decide to show them love by cooking for them.
Mr. Ibu in an interview revealed how his wife prepares his favourite stew called “Ibu stew” any time he wants to eat, saying that he does not know how to cook.
In an Interview with The PUNCH , Mr Ibu said he prefers his wife to cook for him since what he can only do was to boil water.
“My wife knows all about food and it is her duty to take note of that. She makes sure she gives me the best of what I need to eat. I do not take note on my own (of the nutritional value), but my wife does it for me.
“Cooking is for the women and should be done by them, except on few occasions if you just feel the need to cook, which shows you have regard for your wife. Asides that, cooking is a woman’s duty.
“When a man cooks, it is either because the wife is away from home and he’s alone. So, he has to cook for himself.
“I don’t know how to cook. I can only boil water. There was only a time I tried to cook, but my wife eventually did that for me. I told her how I wanted the soup to be made and the ingredients I wanted in it. I call it Ibu stew.
“I don’t have the time to do that because of work. Therefore, my wife handles that aspect. I don’t know how often she does that.
“I’m scared of food that has certain types of flavours. I’m always out for work, so I eat out. But whenever I’m back home, I always eat at home.
“I love eating ‘swallow’ with good soups like vegetables, egusi and okra,” he said.
