Adeola, the younger brother to a recently deceased actress, Jumoke Aderounmu, popularly known for her role of Esther in popular sitcom, ‘Jenifa’s Diary’, has said that deceased was actually planning on relocating to the United Kingdom before her demise.

Speaking in an interview with Saturday Beats, Adeola noted that Jumoke wanted to relocate to UK, because she was not getting movie roles.

On why he did not reach out privately to popular actress and filmmaker, Funke Akindele, instead of bashing her online for allegedly not helping the deceased in her time of need, he stated that he did not have number.

He said, “I did not reach out to her (Funke), because I don’t have her phone number, and I am not close to her. But, my sister had her number, and even sent another actress, Paschaline Alex to her, all to no avail.

“She (Funke) stopped calling her for jobs. Jumoke tried to know why, because she wanted to retrace her steps if she had committed any offence,”

He reiterated that only two of her colleagues— Rita Dominic and Tayo Sobola— came through for Jumoke in her time of need.

Describing his sister as an introvert, Adeola said, “She was an introvert, and usually kept to herself. She was actually not sick. She just died in her sleep.
