Kemi Filani recalls that Henrietta Kosoko died from complications which arose from diabetes.
“Forget about what people said. My late wife was ill and she died of complications which arose from diabetes. My friends, family and colleagues stood by me and I appreciate it. Of course, you will always
have one or two persons that would say one or two negative things but in my life, I have fought so many wars and I have won all of them; so it is only someone who wants to be crushed that would confront me in war because almighty God has His plan for me. It is quite unfortunate that all these things are happening to me but I still thank almighty God because there are reasons for everything.” Jide Kosoko told the Press.
When asked what he missed about her, he said, “I miss everything about her, yes, she was human and she had her flaws but I must confess I would miss her for so many things. She was my companion because we were in the same profession. She was not only my wife but we were in the same industry together. I still dream about her but it is mostly based on my imagination. How I hope she was still alive. I would miss her food because she was a fantastic cook.”
Henrietta was buried on June 10, 2016 in Abraka, her hometown in Delta State.
She is survived by husband, Jide Kosoko, and children.
