It was a different kind of celebration for embattled actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima who clocked 44 years last Friday.

The mother of three, at her birthday gig in Lekki Phase one, hosted her celebrity colleagues, the media and officials of Heritage Bank, sponsors of her annual scholarship scheme tagged ‘Go To School’, meant for kids under the age of 10.

High point of the celebration was the unveiling of five beneficiaries in the maiden edition of the scholarship scheme, a charity she has since embarked upon despite a manslaughter case that is pending.

Recall that Ibinabo is on bail of a court proceeding over an accident that led to the death of one Dr Suraj Giwa in 2006.

The actress thanked the recipients for allowing her to be a part of their lives saying, “It is good to have children who you can give the best education, but when you look out there, you see thousands of children whose parents cannot afford to send them to school. I know assisting eight people will at least change their lives in some ways,” she said.

This is not the first time the actress will be engaging in philanthropic gestures. She had long been interested in children and had even adopted some as her children.

The beneficiaries include; Paul Prince Stephens from Akwa Ibom, Arinze Maxi Chukwu from Anambra, Odunaike Olamilekan from Lagos, and Treasure Okwuke from Edo State. Others include, Oluwafemi Usman, and three other children from one family in Kogi State.

Some of her colleagues at the event are Charles Granville, Aneke Twins, AY, Ricardo Agbor and Monalisa Chinda.

Shortly before her birthday party, Ibinabo had revealed via the social media, the collapse of her two-year-old marriage to Uche Egbuka in a birthday message to her fans. She also narrated, while thanking God, the surgical pains she had to go through in her fight against breast cancer.

She wrote on Instagram: “The last year in particular has severally presented survival as a questionable option. Giving me struggles that seemed impossible to deal with, fading my strength to keep going by the minute feeding my fears and insecurities with worries that come to steal joy.

“From the shock of a 3 time presence of lumps in the breast to surgeries; fighting for my life and the pain of dissolution of a bond I hoped to keep with a life time partner and the re-emergence of singleness.”
