Veteran actor Kayode Olasehinde ‘Ajirebi’ aka Pa James has cleared the air over claims of being gifted a new house by actress Funke Akindele.
The actor had cried out for help after his house located in Oke Isagun community of Oke Odo LGA in Lagos was destroyed by floods.
However, several celebrities and well-meaning Nigerians rose up to his aid, including Funke Akindele.
But the actor, in an appreciation video recorded by actor Kunle Afod, noted Funke Akindele helped him but not with a gift of a new house. She instead advised him to look for a place to rent and she paid the fee
He said: “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….”
