Samuel Ajibola is a Nigerian television and film actor, model, and events compere.
He is best known for his role as a child actor in the Opa Williams-directed movie Tears for Love, as well as his role as “Spiff” in the Africa Magic TV series The Johnsons.
In a previous interview with a correspondent, Spiff, who described himself as a very lucky man, said his union with his wife was destined to happen at the right time.
When he was asked the signs that made him certain that he had found his missing rib.
The actor said, “Right from primary school, I knew that I was either going to settle down with an Igbo woman or a white lady. But I had an 80 per cent chance of settling down with an Igbo woman who is fair; and also comes from a Catholic family.
Those were the traits of the girls I was usually attracted to. But for my spouse, she had some features that reminded me of my mum when she was younger; and since I have so much resemblance to my dad, I knew it was going to be easy to settle down with her. I’m also in tune with my spiritual life, so I knew it was meant to be.
I saw the signs and messages and I wasn’t going to take chances. When she met my parents, they were also of the opinion that she would be a great wife.”
