|Her four kids at her ongoing wake keep service|
Grief and agony have overtaken the Kosoko family as wife of legendary actor Jide Kosoko, Henrietta Kosoko breathed her last on Monday, June 6, 2016.
The Delta state-born actress passed on in the early hours of Monday at R-Jolad Hospital, Bariga, Lagos after a long battle with diabetes.
Her last moments
Contrary to reports that she slumped before she was rushed to the hospital, her younger brother, Krisvosa, who was her manager, denied that.
Krisvosa said Henrietta fell seriously ill two weeks ago and was taken to R-Jolad Hospital, Bariga, and had returned home before the sickness relapsed.
According to him, ‘It all started two weeks ago. Apparently, she was diabetic and was managing the ailment. She fell seriously ill two weeks ago and we took her to the hospital and where she was admitted for few days. She came back home doing very fine. She showed great sign of recovery and everybody was happy that the storm was over.
‘Few days after, the sickness relapsed and we took her back to the hospital. She was admitted for the second time and died two days after. She died around 9 am on Monday morning.’
Between Henrietta and Jide Kosoko
Until her demise, she was married to the legendary Lagos-born actor. They lived together for several years at Jide Kosoko’s former house at Ajasa Command, by Ekoro Road, Abule-Egba, Lagos.
Though, it was once reported that she had parted ways with her husband, following her decision to move out of her matrimonial home four years ago, Henrietta denied the rumour. Up until her death, she lived at No. 4 Olarenwaju Street, by Chemist Bus Stop, Akoka Road, Lagos, with her kids.
She is survived by four children
A mother of four, Henrietta Kosoko had a set of twins from her previous marriage to one Mr. Olowu. She also gave birth to a boy (Oluwamuyiwa) and a girl (Temilade) with Jide Kosoko.
One of her twin boys, Taiwo Olowu aka LT is a rising pop act, who has several songs to his credit. Henrietta practically played the role of his manager and was always attending shows with him until her demise.
