2016 was a year that made survival a questionable option for Ibinabo Fiberesima, Nollywood actress and former beauty queen.


Fiberesima on Friday said it seemed impossible to deal with all the troubles that came her way, but she rose above them all.

The actress took to Facebook to appreciate her loved ones on the anniversary of her birth while recounting the challenges she faced in 2016.

She said in part: “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 a dissolution of a bond I hoped to keep with a life time partner and the re-emergence of singleness.

“From the tension of awaiting a judges pronouncement to the horror of walking into prison over a cross accidentally acquired and carried for so long. Tell me how could I have survived the year without you guys?

“I think about it every day and everyday my love for God and good hearted men rise but today the 13th of January it hits it’s peak and my joy officially knows no bounds as God has kept me alive despite all and led me to witness yet another birthday with the people I love.”


In April 2016, the former president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria was granted a N2m bail after she was sentenced to five-year jail term for reckless driving that led to the death of a hospital staff.
