SAN FRANCISCO, July 10, (THEWILL) – Veteran Nollywood actor, Kayode Olasehinde “Ajirebi” popularly called Pa James, has debunked media reports that Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, bought him a house.
Pa James instead said the actress, who is famous for her comic role in the ‘Jenifa Diary’ series rented him an apartment after his home was ravaged by flood. He thanked her for the gesture in a video shared on social media.
“God will keep you for helping me, I didn’t know people cared about me like this…. I can’t thank you enough…for doing this to me while I am alive…. to my fellow actors, you impressed me…and thank you to Funke Akindele, I won’t lie she did me well…. but I need to clear the air on the reports that she bought me a house, while passing on my street this morning, some area boys stopped me and hailed me saying they will visit me in the house Funke Akindele built for me…and I was shocked…. Funke only paid for an apartment for me to rent for the meantime…and I am truly grateful but she didn’t build me a house,” he said.
