SAN FRANCISCO, July 08, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, has given fellow actor, Kayode Olasehinde ‘Ajirebi’ popularly known as Pa James, a brand new home.
According to available reports, the home of the veteran Nollywood actor located in Oke Isagun community of Oke Odo LGA in Lagos was destroyed by flood due to heavy rainfall.
Fellow Nollywood actress, Kemi Korede, took to her Instagram account to announce the gesture.
Korede said: “On behalf of PA JAMES, I Want to say Big thank you to @funkejenifaakindele for the new apartment given to him by you. God bless you so much for your good heart. Your type is so rare..you are a gem. Almighty God will continue to make way for you where there seems to be no way.”
The actress has however deleted the post as it appears that Akindele does not intend to publicize her kind gesture.
Also, Pa Ajirebi’s son, Samuel Ajirebi, had earlier released a video earlier showing the deplorable state of his dad’s home.
He wrote: “Seriously sad right now, I get to think at times that, are we sure we have a government in this country?
“Look at what I met on going to visit my family today, a flooded house due to the overflowing canal behind our street.
“To make matters worse, no one was at home to save my dad, so the old man and I had to be saving properties and scooping water out of the house!
“This year makes it ten years of the repeated and consistent occurrence of this with severe damages done annually to properties, at times leading to temporary displacement!
“Letters have been written, appearances made, press releases written, still no significant step was taken by the government to channel the overrunning canal. We need government intervention in Oke Isagun Community of Oke Odo LGA.
‘’We lose properties! We lose rest whenever we see rain signs! Tonight is going to be a partial prayer moment for families because it must not rain tonight…. No house for us to sleep in anymore!
“This is sad and heartbreaking.”
