Julius Agwu’s marriage allegedly crashes as wife dumps him over health challenge spanning 14 years

Popular Comedian Julius Agwu’s marriage of almost 14 years to Ibiere Maclayton has reportedly crashed.

Kemi Filani recalls that the couple had a challenging time when Agwu fell ill in 2015.

The ace comedian, who has made a difference with his show, ‘Crack Ya Rib,’ had a successful brain surgery in 2015, recovered but then suffered a relapse in 2016 when he went to London for his show.

Though keeping a low profile since then, he attempted to revive his career by returning ‘Crack Ya ribs,’ and announcing his plans to celebrate 25 years in comedy, Agwu couldn’t get that done.

Though not looking as vibrant and hearty as he was before the ailment, Julius Agwu is said to be recuperating and everyone thought his wife was taking care of him.

“She took care of him for sometimes but there were cracks in the union. Maybe she got tired of the current situation—cash flow wasn’t as when Agwu was stupendously rich and healthy. She must have been tired of the situation and left Agwu who isn’t as fit as before,” sources close to the couple told Kemi Ashefon.

The Abonnema born Ibiere travelled abroad with her kids and only shares their photos on Instagram. She has reverted to her maiden name.

Ibiere was a pillar of support to her husband during his health challenge and shared in an interview years back that the medical condition got so bad to a point where he stopped breathing and was almost taken to the mortuary.

She reminisced, “So now I am going to be a widow, how I manage with these children? These were my thoughts at the time.”

It wasn’t until after a trip to an American hospital, that Julius discovered he had three tumours in his brain with one that was the size of a golf ball.

He recalled, “I started looking for my property documents to give to my wife. One day when they were not home, I almost committed suicide.”

Following his successful surgery at the Park Plaza Hospital in Houston, America in 2015, the comedian decided to drop a thanksgiving song entitled ‘Second Chance’ with a vow glorify God on all his platforms.

They got married on May 31 2008 and are blessed with two kids, Zahra & Zadok. In 2020, the couple celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary.

    What is wrong with Nigerians?….someone is very ill with brain tumors insteading of assisting financially, you are asking for his phone number for prayer links,I’m a Christian too but we should be able to follow process which is giving him the medical attention he needs not prayer links, if prayer without works could change this so fast,it should be able to change this country!

      Did he ask for financial assistance? I didn’t read where Agu said he needed money. As Christians, all you can do for him right now is PRAY. If you claim to be a Christian and still think prayer can’t change things then your Christianity is questionable.
      Please, don’t post nonsense if you can’t assist in a situation and don’t condemn those that are trying to lend a helping hand.

    It baffles me when some so-called Christians set a limit to what God can do or the extent He can go when it comes to issues in their lives. While I am never against medical treatment God begins His work where all human wisdom ends. Science is true and real but sweetheart, God is far more true and far more real than science. Allow God to step into this situation and do what only HE can do. Let’s stop leaning on our own understanding and allow God take His rightful place in our situations. It is well with Julius in Jesus name 🙏 God bless you!
