“Here to pay our last respect to our Friend and Colleague.


Life happened!
Legacies and memories are what are left behind.
Forever in our hearts”.

Her outfit to the funeral didn’t sit right with netizens who mercilessly dragged her.

Reacting to the backlash, Queen shared a screenshot of the inspiration she got for her outfit and slammed her critics for their foolishness. She noted how many of them form fashion gurù, yet they haven’t travelled from their local government.

Poking fun at them, she stated that she should have worn a wrapper or looked miserable to soothe them.

“Some of you are obviously STU*ID; hence wisdom is far from you.
Forming fashion gùru yet una never travel comot from una local government.
Oh, I forgot, I am supposed to tie a wrapper or look miserable to soothe your empty brains”.

Kemi Filani reported hours ago that it is a tough time for the family, friends and loved ones of Junior Pope Odonwodo as he is laid to rest today, May 17th, 2023.

The actor’s burial was in his hometown of Ukehe, in Enugu State. Photos and videos from the funeral made rounds on the internet, and his wife, who was holding their last child, was seen in tears.

Recall that his funeral poster had caused controversy as many eagle-eyed fans noticed that on the obituary poster, ‘husband’ was noticeably absent, which left tongues wagging as before his demise, Junior Pope was married to Jennifer Awele, and they have 3 sons.

Speaking out, his family made it known that they didn’t authorise the burial poster and later corrected it to include his wife.

Despite his demise, his friends and colleagues had marked his first posthumous birthday on May 7th.
