Top Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, has just gifted veteran actor, Kayode Olasehinde ‘Ajirebi’ aka Pa James with a brand new home.
Kemi Filani News reports that the kind gesture is coming after the house of veteran Nollywood actor, Ajirebi Kayode Olasehinde, located in Oke Isagun community of Oke Odo LGA in Lagos was destroyed by flooded after heavy rainfall.
The rain forced a canal to overflow thereby releasing its content into the property of the actor which has become a regular occurrence.
Announcing the kind gesture by Funke Akindele, actress Kemi Korede via Instagram wrote: “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.”
Although she has taken down the post after being instructed by Funke, who enjoys silently helping people, rather than receiving glory on social media for it, we were able to get a screenshot of it as seen below:
In another post, Kemi thanked those who came through for the actor, saying “To all that had supported pa James we say a big thank you…
Our colleagues that came all out to help we say thank you and God bless you all”
Pa Ajirebi’s son, Samuel Ajirebi, had cried out earlier today and released photos of the sorry state of his dad’s home, online.
“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 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 governmental 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”.
