    ‘Why popular actor, Jide Kosoko is not recognized as husband of Henrietta, his departed wife’


     By Emmanuel Udom

    Urhobo women from Delta state, mid-west Nigeria, are angling for action, over the dead of Henrietta Emumeakpor-Kosoko; one of the many wives of  popular Yoruba actor, Jide Kosoko.

    The women, insider sources allege say ‘Henrietta is Urhobo woman from Delta state, where they cherish their culture. Jide Kosoko didn’t go to her family house in Delta to pay her dowry,’

    Recall that the funeral service for the late Henrietta, who was also a famous Yoruba actress, was slated to hold at Regina Mundi Catholic Church in, Mushin, Lagos, south-west Nigeria.

    It was however cancelled, even as our sources allege that her remains will also not be interred at Atan cemetery in Yaba, Lagos, as earlier planned.  

    www.kemifilani.com, is quoted as saying that the reason for the cancellation of the Lagos funeral arrangement was not unconnected with the fact that the Henrietta’s family from Delta state insisted that their daughter must not be buried outside.

    The family of the late actress does not recognize Jide Kosoko as her husband, hence their decision to take charge of her funeral.

    “It’s true that Henrietta’s remains will no longer be buried in Lagos. Her siblings and other members of her family have insisted they’re not burying her in Lagos as earlier planned by Jide Kosoko.

    “I learnt the issue didn’t go down well with Jide Kosoko, but there’s nothing he could do to resist that.”
