Veteran Nollywood actor, Jide Kosoko, who lost his wife, Henrietta Kosoko, on June 6, 2016, is worried about what people are saying concerning his wife’s death.
Mr. Kosoko in an interview with Encomium revealed that he learnt of his wife’s death on social media and took it as one of those rumours. He also said he is worried to death because Henrietta is his third wife that he is losing to death and people are beginning to talk.
“I went to a particular event on Monday (June 6), I was not aware that my wife was dead until the person that was with me asked me to check the rumours flying around the social media about my wife’s death.
“I referred to it as rumour because I still didn’t believe, if not until I confirmed it myself. I don’t know how to explain the situation. It is an unimaginable loss.
“Iyawo Keta; s’e awon aye oni m’aka fun mi?’ (This is the third wife l have lost; won’t people be counting, keeping records?).”
Controversial media personality, Kemi Olunloyo has already taken to Twitter, calling for the actor to be investigated as this is the third time Kosoko is losing a wife to death. According to her tweet Jide Kosoko uses his wives for rituals.
Late Henrietta Kosoko was married to Jide Kosoko alongside Alhaja Kareemat Kosoko after Jide lost his first two wives to untimely death. Henrietta also had been previously married and had a set of twins, Taiye and Kehinde from that marriage.
Henrietta Kosoko died after battling with diabetes, one week after her 53rd Birthday. The Delta state-born caterer cum actress, until her death, was the artiste manager of her son (L.T).
May her soul rest in perfect peace and may God give her husband and family the fortitude to bear the loss.
