We don't recognise Jide Kosoko as her husband | No more Lagos burial today for Henrietta Kosoko as her family hijack plans

The Funeral service for late Henrietta Emumeakpor-Kosoko slated for Regina Mundi,Mushin,Lagos has been cancelled.Not only that, her remains will also not be interred at Atan Cemetery,Yaba,Lagos as earlier released by the burial committee.

According to one of the members of the committee who spoke to reporters, the reason for the cancellation of the Lagos funeral arrangement was not unconnected with the fact that the Henrietta’s family from Delta state insisted that their daughter must not be buried outside.

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,’ the source said.

“It’s true that Henrietta’s remains will no longer be buried in Lagos. Her siblings and other members of her family have insisted they’re not burying her in Lagos as earlier planned by Jide Kosoko.

“I learnt the issue didn’t go down well with Jide Kosoko but there’s nothing he could do to resist that.”


  1. Double wahala for dead body

  2. Urhobos don't joke with such..Even if u bury the body in London, them go uproot am
    ....My aunt was out of Nigeria 4 27yrs, when she died, her kids were warned not to bury her in London soil....Make Jide allow them to carry her home

    1. My dear not anymore

  3. Huh... her family did not recognize Jide Kosoko as the husband after how many years? And they had to wait until her death?
    Na wa o... plenty wahala for dead bodybody

  4. So far he didn't pay her bride price,tradition demands he is not the husband.

  5. Oversabi family what's there if she's buried in lagos. Where were they when she was sick rubbish

  6. That was before , I have a family friend that buried their father in the cemetery, after village youths and family kept on destroying the tomb for the man because of Deve.the children where all abroad ,they just flew in and buried him in Ikoyi vaults. And more than 10years they are doing super well.Them be Urhobo too

  7. How can he plan burial without consulting the family? Is not possible now.

  8. Urhobos don't bury their daughter outside plus she is no longer with Jide Kosoko.

  9. Na so.
    Marry properly, dem no go gree.
    Ana'm anu Igba.
    These two just lost some respect this instant sha

  10. Funny how some public figure behave. how would he marry an urhobo woman without going to pay her bride price. He is a thief and should be tried in the traditional way.

    firstly he should pay the bride price of the dead woman.
    secondly he should conduct an engagement ceremony for the dead woman.
    thirdly, he should be made to marry the dead woman before conducting the burial.
