‘My sister didn’t die of diabetes’ -HENRIETTA’S BROTHER, KRISVOSA IRIKEFE

How did you receive the news of your  sister’s death?

I didn’t receive the news. I was there when she passed on. She died at Jolad Hospital, Gbagada, Lagos.

How would you describe her?

She’s a good woman. She motivated a lot of people. She’s caring. She’s just a wonderful woman. She fulfilled our Lord Jesus’ law which is ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’. She loved everyone.

How would you describe her last moment?

Her last minute was sad. It wasn’t what we were prepared for. It’s very touching and sad. It’s quite painful. When they were trying to pass drip into her body, she was too weak. She was struggling with us until she finally gave up.

Did she actually die of diabetes as reported?

Well, she’s diabetic, we are aware of that, but she did not die of diabetes. Even though her sugar level was high, I know there are so many reasons behind her death. But I will keep them to myself.

Do you believe her death was as a result of spiritual attack?

This is Africa, I can’t specifically tell you if she died of spiritual attack, but we thank God she’s gone to rest. Though there are so many blames I can mention but it is not the right time, because she’s dead and won’t return to this world. So, we should just give thanks to God.

What will you miss most about her?

We quarreled a lot. We fought but we settled. Anytime we quarreled, she would report me to the twins because she gave them to me to take care. We were very close. After fighting, we came together again to share ideas.

What position are you to her?

I’m the last born of the house, but I was the closest to her.

So, what are you into?

Actually, I don’t want to talk about this, but we run an entertainment company. One of her sons Taiwo Olowu (LT) is into music. He just dropped a single, Uncommon. So, we are about to push his single when this happened.

How is life going to be without her?

There’s nothing permanent in this life. Life must go on. Though, we all miss her, we have no choice. What can we say? We can’t contest anything with our Creator. God know best.

What’s the name of the entertainment line?

Krisvisa Entertainment.
