No thanks to media personality, Kemi Olunloyo who claimed that Jide Kosoko used his late wives for rituals, the veteran actor has felt the need to address the malicious speculations.
Since the death of his third wife, Henrietta Kosoko, in June 2016, the ace Nollywood actor has been faced with allegations that he had a hand in not only the death of the actress but his other two wives.
Olunloyo fondly known as Snitchlady, took to social media to accuse him of using his late wives for money rituals.
Although Olunloyo has since apologised to Kosoko, the stigma seems have settled around the actor who noted that people are counting his losses.
Speaking with Punch in a recent interview, Kosoko finally broke his silence on the allegations, stating that Olunloyo only expressed her opinion, of which she had a right to.
He said: “I do not want to go to Kemi Olunloyo’s issue because the chapter is closed.
“I do not want to dwell much on it because when people approached me and informed me of what she was saying, I said she was entitled to her opinion. She was voicing out, what about those that would not say anything but in their mind, they would say that I have lost about three wives?
“They are only being human but the truth is that for Olunloyo, that is her opinion no matter how hurt I might have been with her utterances. By my nature, there was nothing I could do. But I appreciate her father who called me and apologised. He said some other things that I may not be able to share with the public.”
Throwing some more light on the cause of Henrietta’s death, the grieving actor said, “Forget about what people said. My late wife was ill and she died of complications which arose from diabetes. My friends, family and colleagues stood by me and I appreciate it.
“Of course, you will always have one or two persons that would say one or two negative things but in my life, I have fought so many wars and I have won all of them; so it is only someone who wants to be crushed that would confront me in war because almighty God has His plan for me. It is quite unfortunate that all these things are happening to me but I still thank almighty God because there are reasons for everything.
“I miss everything about her, yes, she was human and she had her flaws but I must confess I would miss her for so many things. She was my companion because we were in the same profession. She was not only my wife but we were in the same industry together.
“I still dream about her but it is mostly based on my imagination. How I hope she was still alive. I would miss her food because she was a fantastic cook.”
Henrietta who was Kosoko’s third wife is reported to have slumped at home and was rushed to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
May her soul continue to rest in peace.
