Veteran comedian, Kayode Olasehinde ‘Ajirebi’ aka Pa James, has cleared the air over reports of his being gifted a new house by actress Funke Akindele.
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 that Akindele helped him but not with a gift of a new house.
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….”
