Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola’s husband, Kayode Salako has taken to his social media page to clear the air on what he meant when he spoke regarding the death and burial arrangements of Nollywood actress, Mpoji Olaiya.
Recall that news of the actress’ death broke some days ago as she was reported to have died due to cardiac arrest at a Canadian hospital.
The remains of the actress who was reported to have suffered childbirth complications before her death has since been released by the Canadian authorities to be repatriated to Nigeria.
Addressing his statement which has been credited to be a publicity stunt, the actress’ husband took to his social media page to write:
“What other popularity would I have been looking for in all of this? I have been talking on national television stations in the past 15 years; my wife is an A’ list Nollywood celebrity of about 25 years stardom. I have featured in more than 300 news and celebrity journals as a prominent public affairs analyst; activist and social commentator. And I have taught more than 20,000 students as a seasoned educationist of more than 26 years since 1989. So, what is that popularity I am still looking for around anybody’s death that even that of my own wife cannot pull for me? This is not about looking for popularity, but about advocating for the right purpose to be achieved…”
