Late Henrietta Kosoko’s funeral that was scheduled to hold today at Atan Cemetery has been canceled.
A source close to the family disclosed that 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 the village with her to do the needful. Because of this, her family doesn’t see him as their in-law,” the source told Netng.
The family did not call to inform him, he got to know when the news surfaced online even when Henrietta passed on. A source close to Jide Kosoko also confirmed to us that the late actress will be buried in Delta saying, ‘Her family has kicked against our initial plans to bury her here in Lagos. They said it’s against their culture. So we had no choice than to obey want they want.’
Henrietta Kosoko burial rites will now be her hometown in Delta State.
Her wake keep was held yesterday, June 9, 2016 at LTV 8, Agidingbi, Ikeja with family, friends and celebrities in attendance.
