Late Nollywood actress, Henrietta Kosoko scheduled to be buried today, Friday, June 10, 2016 at the Atan cemetery has been canceled.
According to sources, the family of the late actress does not recognize Jide Kosoko as her husband, hence their decision to take charge of her funeral.
“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. He met her here in Lagos and they got married and never made any attempt to go to the village with her to do the needful. Because of this, her family doesn’t see him as their in-law,” a source told NetNg.
It was also revealed that when Henrietta passed on, the family did not call to inform Jide Kosoko of her death as he got to know when the news surfaced online.
Henrietta’s corpse will leave for Delta State today. The new arrangement was confirmed by her husband Jide Kosoko.
Her wake keep was held yesterday, June 9, 2016 at LTV 8, Agidingbi, Ikeja with family, friends and celebrities in attendance.
Present at the solemn service was Toyin Aimakhu, Mercy Aigbe, Yomi Fash-lanso, Foluke Daramola, Desmond Elliot, Adeniyi Johnson and others.
