The physical body of lovable actress Henrietta Kosoko, 52, who died in the morning of Monday, June 6, from diabetes complications, was finally buried at 6: 00 pm in Abraka ( Delta), in the Niger Delta region, today ( Friday, June 10).
The burial, earlier scheduled for Atan Cemetery, Yaba (Lagos), was only moved yesterday to Delta, with many celebrities unable to make the journey to support Prince Jide Kosoko, 62, the veteran actor husband of the diseased.
Many of the Nollywood stars who flooded yesterday’s wake keep and artistes performance night at LTV 8 grounds in Agidingbi, Ikeja (Lagos), were taken by surprise by the change of burial venue, and could not make the over four hour journey to Abraka.
Only her close family members were at the Abraka funeral. But the town reportedly stood at attention to welcome their daughter and mother of four children.
But there were some artistes who were delegated to support the Kosoko’s in Abraka. A powerful delegation from Lagos was joined by some members of Theatre Arts and Movie Practioners Association of Nigeria from Ondo state at the Abraka funeral.
